Andreas Weixler 2017 VICC
5 channel electroacoustic composition based on contemporary
instrumental sounds and vocals
composed 2017 at VICC - Visby Internationale Centre for Composers
WaterGhosts was created in the Studio Alpha of VICC during a
composer in residence in February 2017. All electronic sounds are
based on recordings of acoustic instruments. A multichannel realtime
audio processing studio session of voice and double bass gave
gestural movements of acoustic as well as generated electronic
sounds in a mutual improvisation. Recordings of the acoustic
sounds of low drums and a trombone are then altered by the same max
msp live processing of granular synthesis and stochastic
spatialisation. The compositions is then completed by a Petzold
subcontrabass recorder audio processing in the studio to configure a
spatial composition in an organic soundscape.

Die Wege entstehen im Gehen (Semi) Se-Lien Chuang 2008/09/16 8-channel electroacoustic composition & visual
The Sonic Lab of SARC stimulated the multichannel electroacoustic
composition of this piece because of the environment, which provides
excellent accomodation for a huge amount of Semis (Japanese
cicadas). The recordings were made during the research visit to
IAMAS (International Academy of Media Arts and Sciences) in
Ogaki/Gifu, Japan in July 2008.
There are so many paddy fields and it is so hot by day and by night,
all around behind the trees they just begin to sing these
distinctive songs in choir or solo part ...
The visual composition was especially created in 2009 at Atelier
Avant Austria for the DeepSpace.

3. Double Fancy OSU
realtime processing improvisation
Ann Stimpson - flute
Marc Ainger - open percussion
Se-Lien Chuang - mouth organ and voice
Andreas Weixler - electric guitar and electronics
In the artists scene there are several pairs of artists whose
success is based on joint work and life. The duo Chuang-Weixler took
up this idea to interact with fellow artist couples in a series of
concerts called Double Fancy. At ACCAD we present the encounter of
the Austrian/Taiwanese artists duo with the contemporary
flutist Ann Stimpson and composer Marc Ainger in a joint concert of
a double duo: The concert combines contemporary composition with
virtuoso playing technique, improvisation with computer music
gula huset by Se-Lien Chuang 2017 5 channel electroacoustic composition with contemporary
instrumental sounds and vocals
composed 2017 at VICC - Visby Internationale Centre for Composers. All electronic sounds are transformed from the recordings of
acoustic instruments and voices.
The reminiscence of micro fragments was recalling consistently by
the recurrent variations and nuances of the saturations during the
episodes. Some Strokes can surprisingly pull the listeners out of
the state of a trance.
gula huset is created in the Studio Alpha of VICC during a composer
in residence in February 2017.
I would like to acknowledge especially and respectively to
Jonny Axelsson (Sweden), percussion and Ivo Nilsson (Sweden),
trombone, the sounds of them are recorded 2016 at Jonny’s lovely
atelier in Stockholm, Sweden.
Jonas Nilsson (Sweden), double bass and Se-Lien Chuang
(Taiwan/Austria), vocal, the sounds of them are recorded 2017 in
Studio Alpha VICC, Visby, Gotland, Sweden. 5.
Wetterleuchten - virtuoso chances return home
video with interactive sound file player for instrumental gestures
8 channel audio
Andreas Weixler, composition

2013 Novars residency, University of Manchester UK
The composition consists of two overlaying parts:
part 1: multichannel ambience soundfile player • with FFT
filtering & algorithmic multichannel sound distribution
part 2: multichannel I/O dynamic soundfile player • for
On the Basis of a recording of an Austrian thunderstorm, recorded in
Styria, Austria, an interactive sound file player for instrumental
gestures creates sounds which reply to it by recordings of
contemporary playing techniques of double bass, violoncello, cembalo
and arco piano. The sounds are selected and composed and then
spatialized on a multichannel system by virtuoso chances into a
multichannel ambience music „Virtuoso Chances - return home“. The
interactive sound file player and the music was created an NOVARS
Manchester, UK. The video was recorded at Tressenstein in Styria,
Austria and edited at Atelier Avant Austria.

8-channel electroacoustic composition
by Andreas Weixler 2005
this piece is about an old theme of music, about expression and
arousal of emotion and relief of tension, where words cease.
Produced at the Electronic Studio of the Technical University
Berlin, 2004/05. First premiere: UltraSchall Berlin, 2005, further
All sounds are created from the instrumental sound of percussion
instruments (among these a huge plate in c#), a marimba and the
sound of the sea at Croma /UK. The used pluggins are GRM and Wave
and a dynamic sound file player, a programme routine the composer
created in Max msp for the algorithmic movements of the sounds.
Momentum ACCAD interactive score for open ensemble and audiovisual realtime

New experiences will be evoked in the encounter

In concert the work comprises a real-time audiovisual environment
controlled and performed by computer musicians.
While visual images and processes are being generated during the
concert, a multi channel granular synthesis, spectral delays and
virtuoso chances fit together minute tonal particles that make up
the instrumental sounds into a constantly changing acoustic stream
made up of different pitches, durations and positions in the
electro-acoustic space. The musical and visual components interact
and reciprocally influence each other in order to blend into a
unique, synaesthetic, improvisational work of art.
