Aux mains de l’espace – in the hand of the space
Portrait concert Gerald Eckert
“Aux mains de l’espace” is not just the title of an electronic piece by Gerald Eckert. You often feel in the "hand of the room" when listening to his music, which takes you again and again into new, innovative and inspiring soundscapes.
Research into the extreme areas of sound and silence constantly brings the unexpected to light. Hardly audible is enlarged, alienated, like with a "zoom". The audience can often not really be sure which instrument is being heard, when a transition has taken place or whether an electronic sound is being heard.
Gerald Eckert uses his knowledge with mastery and virtuosity in his compositions and always works with his interpreters to push the technical boundaries outwards. In the musicians of Ensemble Reflexion K, he has found equal partners who understand his sound ideas both intuitively and intellectually and are also able to implement them or develop them further together with him.
Gerald Eckert and the Ensemble Reflexion K have been working together artistically and personally for 20 years, exploring the new and unknown in sound and since then have been shaping the musical present, not just in the north. So it's time for a portrait.
