| MICHAEL VORFELD plays percussion and self designed
stringed instruments and realises electro-acoustic sound pieces. He
works in the field of experimental, improvised music and sound art.
Besides solo activities he is a member of different groups and collaborates
with artists of different art forms.
«The starting point of my acoustic musi is the combination of
conventional percussion instruments with self designed stringed instruments
and sound objects. Combining these instrumental set-ups with various
and unique playing techniques allows me to create an exceptional variety
of sounds. A substantial aspect of my way of playing is the mixture
and relation of different sound characters and their horizontal and
vertical organisation. Percussive sounds are connected with expansive
sounds, dense structures are combined with spare fragments. The big
variety of different sound speres develops from the specific resonance
raised by the varying instruments and the way of playing them. Rhythmic
structures are less conected to metric than to pulsing movements.
The sound colors are basically effected by the use of acoustic instruments.
