Reusner, von, Clemens: Definierte Lastbedingung 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    “Definierte Lastbedingung” (engl. defined load condition- a technical term when testing electrical machines) is based upon the sounds of electromagnetic fields as they arise when using electric devices recorded at a research institute. In their noisiness these sounds are static, though moved inside. They usually seem bulky, harsh and repellent, even hermetic as the well known electrical hum. These sounds are explored in their structure, reshaped and musically dramatized by the means of the electronic studio. The main frequency of electrical current in Europe is 50 hertz and hence 50 and its multiples is also the numerical key this composition is based upon in a variety of ways.
