Strom - Hommage à Willi Ogan

Hommage a Willi Ogan, was one component of a six part sound intervention, "Strom" which explored the theme of Electric Current. This piece was dedicated to a Great Uncle who was known in Franconia for his Light Music works composed on electronic organ for small orchestras. The elements used in this piece, a 50's domestic setting and reel to reel tape recorder, reference the time in which Willi was at his most prolific. A sound collage using fragments of Willi's music, voice and radio pieces is released from a fan heater, establishing a sonic counterpoint to the recorder which blows strands of magnetic tape. This work reflects an ongoing concern with the abstract dimension of electricity and its transformation into audible sound.
