Squared Squared consists of two longer pieces. a) is a recording of a live performance executed at ZKM in Karlsruhe. It is an abstract piece of music that has evolved during the time the composer has performed live – since 1980. For the composer, generally, a live performance is always the “same thing”, but listening to the early recordings it occurs that the music has changed drastically – only the format is still there. This is analogue to life in general – Earth looks the same like always, but, of course, it isn’t. This piece won the Karl Sczuka Price Price in 2014. The piece is a co-production with ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe and Südwestrundfunk (SWR).
b) is a piece using the sound generated from the soil in the German cemetery in Montevideo, Uruguay. With a technique called emission spectroscopy the composer has experimented with the frequencies that emits from the actual material in the ground and by pulling out samples from these recordings, organising them and looping some this piece became the soundtrack for the film “North Cemetery, Montevideo, Uruguay” directed by Jan Håfström, CM von Hausswolff and Juan-Pedro Fabra Guemberena.
