With Kippschwingung, Frank Bretschneider combines his never simplistic but all the more profound relationship to rhythm with the specific sound aesthetics of the Subharchord. He uses the “rhythmisation installation” designed especially for the instrument as well as the exciting, abstract sounds, which lie exactly between noise and tone, in order to combine an almost forgotten technology with contemporary production and music-making techniques.
For the first time bretschneider presents kippschwingung as audio-visual performance for the soundexchange day Bratislava at the NEXT festival.
