With “Irrtonale Musik” the GingerEnsemble deliberately sets off on a slippery slope of mistakes and perceptual irritations, in search of phantom sounds and acoustic illusions, of virtual irritations, of deliberately controlled and misdirected resonances and sound phenomena to explore the reflections of the Bern Cathedral.
Together with David Behrman, we will probe the acoustic and architectonic conditions of the locations. This can lead to compositional structures which follow the layout of the churches, the different incoming light can lead to changing soundscapes – David Behrman was one the first composer/performer to control electronically produced sounds with photocells – and the three "ugly" bells (as the verger calls them) can serve as a base for "Irrtonale Musik".
