airborne extended is…

airborne – adj. [med., aviat.] transmitted, transported by the air, fly

The unusual combination of harp, harpsichord, flutes and recorders gives airborne extended the possibility to create a wide range of new sounds and colours:

  • strong, immidiate musical ideas, enlarged or limited through their temporary absolute position in time: a conducted approach (Gabriele Manca – conduites d´approche)
  • transparent soundpainting of moving air for Paetzold-recorder and live-elektronics (Agostino di Scipio –  quattro variazioni sul ritmo del vento
  • sound/flight, sound/fear, sound/dream, a restless search for mobility directed to sound/surprise (Stefano Gervasoni – tre intermezzi)
  • aktive staccato, fluttertongue, fast ornaments in the two upper voices combined with arpeggi and chords by the harp and the harpsichord (Fabrizio de Rossi Re – A bop be bounce)
  • minimal music as fascinating dialogue between a harpsichord and a Sopranino – entangled rhythmical cells pulsating in a very fast tempo (Ole Buck – Gymel)

about us…:
