Fek Ber - "Polyrhythmische Kehlkomposition"

https://soundcloud.com/parahybrid/fek-ber

(english below)
So, auf Soundcloud gibt´s eine Version meiner Komposition Fek Ber zu, die zur "Falsche Afrikanisch Erinnerungen"-Werkgruppe gehört, also geht es auch hier um die Verbindung von west-afrikanisch und Pygmäen-inspierierter Rythmik mit Obertongesang und Kehlgesang. Um diese Mischung aus "immer das Gleiche/immer etwas anders" zu erzeugen, habe ich zunächst alle Phrasen aufgenommen, die konkrete Kombination aber Zufalls-Mechanismen in Ableton-live überlassen, innerhalb des vorgegebenen rhythmischen Rahmens. Erneut abgespielt, würde das Set also eine andere Version ergeben - "Generative Musik" sagt Brian Eno dazu, wie ich heute gelesen habe. Freu mich drauf, das mal live mit vielen Leuten umzusetzen. Das Instrumentarium sind großteils Samples von Instrumenten von FreundInnen, ein Balafon, ein Gender (Gamelan), eine Kalimba, Schrottpercussion und einige Drumsounds aus Ableton lives Library, die Kombination der Phrasen der Melodie-Instrumente ergibt sich ebenfalls aus Zufalls-Mechanismen.

This is a composition of mine that belongs to my "Fake african memories" works. In these works I am mixing polyrhythms inspired by Pygmy and west-african music with the techniques of overtone singing and throat singing. Starting with song-type structures, after a while I realized that I wanted something less clear - I love the "always the same/always different"-impression when listening to pygmy music. So here I tried to organize the musical material in a similar manner, mimicking a group of people gathering and singing always the same phrases, but in a loose way, without discipline. To achieve this I heavily related on ableton live´s options to include chance in what is played next. I recorded all the phrases and then the software did the actual combinations within the rhythmic frame. I am looking forward to perform this live with a group of singers and musicians...
