Andreas Trobollowitsch - Ventorgano (cancelled)

Sat 24 Oct 2020 - 15:00 to 23:30
Provinciaal Domein Dommelhof, Toekomstlaan 5, 3910 Pelt

The Ventorgano is an electro-acoustic synthesizer, consisting of guitar strings, wooden resonating bodies and converted fans which use cello-bow hair instead of propellers to set the strings into oscillation. Rotating speed, string tension and attack can be adjusted progressively, allowing the player to control micro-rhythmical elements and subtle changes in the overtone spectrum.

Andreas Trobollowitsch (AT) is a composer, performer and sound- and installation artist. He works extensively in the fields of electroacoustic composition and improvisation,

and has composed for dance, theatre, film and radio. Based on rotation, vibration and feedback systems, he uses mainly modified everyday objects, prepared fans and string instruments. Recently he has focused primarily on conceptual compositions, self-developed musical instruments, sound and drawing installations. Interested in the dichotomy of the intellectual and the physical, he includes visual aspects, spatiality, movement, and the way that they relate to sound.
