Thursday, November 21st, 2013, 21.30 Gunter Schneider & Barbara Romen IM ROHR – Sound Performance IM ROHR Zwei Musiker auf der Bühne erzeugen leise instrumentale Klänge. Damit werden zwei  verschieden lange Kartonrohre in Art der früher in Aufnahmestudios gebräuchlichen  Hallkammern beschallt: An einem Ende schickt ein spezieller Lautsprecher die Klänge in das  Rohr, am anderen Ende werden die modifizierten Klänge mit einem Mikrophon wieder  aufgenommen. Die derart eingefärbten instrumentalen Klänge werden verstärkt und wirken  im Sinn einer psychoakustischen Wahrnehmungsschleife auf die Entstehung der folgenden  Instrumentalklänge ein. Wo führt das hin? Hören Sie selbst!   [Gunter Schneider] IM ROHR will also be presented as a sound sculpture from Nov. 21st - 23rd, 2013.. Barbara Romen und Gunter Schneider started their professional collaboration in 1990, from that year on they have been married,  too. From the beginning, contemporary music has been the central aim of their work.  Excursions led to baroque sonatas for salterio (Hackbrett, beaten dulcimer) and basso  continuo. Aside of main repertoire works for guitar duo (Lachenmann, Kubo, but as well  Brouwer and Gnattali) a lot of works were specially composed for them, by composers like  Klaus Ager, Gerold Amann, Martin Daske, Fernando Grillo, Radu Malfatti, and Burkhard Stangl.  Besides, they have been developing music of their own, both for „dulcimer à due“  (performed on one traditional Tyrolean diatonic dulcimer), and for chromatic tenor-dulcimer  and various guitars. The cd „Traditional Alpine Music from the 22nd Century“ was released in  2007. Together they worked in different projects, a.o. „here comes the sun“ with Berlin based  clarinet multiphoner Kai Fagaschinski, music for dance (e.g. with Japanese choreographer  and dancer Saburo Teshigawara), music for radio plays, various improvisation groups, among  others „harsch“ with Burkhard Stangl and Christof Kurzmann, together with Japanese  musicians Sugimoto Taku, Akiyama Tetuzi, and Unami Taku, a project with stone sculptures by Tyrolean sculptor Kassian Erhart, named „tracking stones’ voices“ (ORF-SACD), and  „klopfzeichen/klangschnitte“ with Japanese and Austrian printmakers and musicians. They  are probably best known for their interpretation of Lachenmann’s „Salut fuer Caudwell“ (cd  durian 018-2, booklet on the internet)), which they as well have been touring in a music  theatre project conceived by coreographer Xavier Le Roy since 2005 („Mouvements for  Lachenmann“ and „More Mouvements for Lachenmann“). In 2009 the formed the  experimental house music project „quadrat:sch“ together with composer and looped-zither  virtuoso Christof Dienz and his wife, double bass player Alexandra Dienz.  [Festival shut up and listen! 2009, Austria, 2009]
