The "devil's organist" in action: if you really want to know what the "Queen of Instruments" is all about, make sure to experience Wolfang Mitterer play it live.
Mitterer's organ event at Darmstadt in 2004 included not only works for organ solo but also synthetic sounds. In the piece mixture V (1995) he adheres to the principle indicated in the title, the mixture, in various respects – on the one hand in terms of organ technique and sound, on the other hand by his way of combining organ and electronics, deliberately holding the boundaries in the balance: at times it is impossible to tell whether a sound is created by the organ or electronically.
And the incredibly diverse sound samples, including everyday sounds like children's laughter, car alarms or chirruping birds, are skillfully woven into the overall structure so as to evoke a veritable "mixture" of recollections also in the listener. die zeit spielt keine rolle (1980) recalls Ligeti's sound clusters à la Atmosphères, imperceptibly growing from a single tone to a "full cluster.
