***** The title "Durch den Vorhang gehen" means "Passing Through the Screen" in English *****

The term ‘acousmatics’ refers to the tradition which tells us that the Greek philosopher Pythagoras gave his lectures from behind a curtain, whereby visual information was withdrawn off the screen and the audience could concentrate on listening.

Listening to acousmatic music is not a static process as if the listener is aware of something hidden behind such a curtain. In the case of acousmatics, the sonic events reverberate through the curtain, beyond where they actually are produced, meeting up in the listener’s inner ear and the space the listener is in.

So the questions arise: How real is what the listener hears? To what extent could what is heard be (un)consciously perceived by the listener? If we take an instrument as a primitive body, are there other ways of resonating through this body? How does the performer’s physical movement influence the sound?

Shuoxin Tan (Beijing, China) and Natalia Molina (Bogotá, Colombia) have been playing in various spaces and architectural settings in Cologne and Düsseldorf since the end of December 2021. As composer-performers, they attempt to work between composition and improvisation – in a transition from the calculated to the unforeseen.

Six documentary recordings of their rehearsals were selected for this album:
Tracks a1, a3, and b2 relate to their research and practice on psychoacoustics and physicality. In these the concept was to perform on a certain frequency with certain physical movements, which could be transcribed into notation.

Tracks a2, b1, and b3 are the recordings of their live improvisations, without any predetermined framework or instruction. The listener cannot precisely define the sound sources or the means of sound generation, but finds themselves in another reality relative to their own, on a dream voyage.

By juxtaposing these two different approaches the artists found the whole process fulfilling as a means to explore their own modes of communication through musical languages and instruments.
