Horch! Der Duft der Blüten läutet nach (2003)
by Se-Lien Chuang
concert version

8-channel ADAT piece


Unter dem Himmel des Jahres
ist das Gebirge
ganz still

Der Vogelruf dringt -

Das Auge sucht

Der Wunsch zu horchen

This piece has been commissioned by the City of Innsbruck for the Ruheraum project which is setting up a quiet place on the Innsbrucker Seegrube (1900 m).
The project is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Nordkettenbahn funicular system which is in the Tyrolean Alps.

The recording is of sounds from the funicular system and natural sounds of the mountain.


Studios: IEM (Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics of the University of Music and Dramatic Arts Graz/Austria) and Atelier Avant Austria.

Software: Cool Edit Pro and ProTools, using FFT filter and microtonal gesture.
