about

Tre’Spacial and HandleMe are two pieces for ensemble and electronics developed on the basis of two tracks by the Vienna based Techno Sound Artist Electric Indigo. Brigitta Muntendorf created new syntheses from instrumental and electronic soundscapes and worked on Electric Indigos tracks in thinking of spacial and acoustic extension. HandleMe creates a combination of analog instruments and electronic experimental Techno sound – a broken sarabande as a piece of music from ancient times, a viola solo behind a bass line and a distorted baroque manner are set next to a straight beat. Brigitta Muntendorf follows the idea of music as a gate to the pure idea of pluralism and integration of every kind of existences. For the Kunstfestspiele Herrenhausen (2019) she staged the piece with a senior dance group and a singer in the audience (Agnes Lipka).
