Portrait Concert Karlheinz Essl feat. Xenia Pestova

Austrian Cultural Forum London
Monday, 1 Februar 2016, 7pm



This concert sheds new light onto an instrument which we all know and love: the concert piano. The instrument's long history and all the wonderful music written for it will serve as a backdrop for this concert, where the piano will appear in a new guise. With the aid of computer technology and live electronics paired with extended playing techniques, the grand piano will display a fascinating variety of sounds. Next to the grand piano, its tiny sister - the toy piano - will also be heard this evening.

Xenia Pestova is a pianist and Director of Performance at the University of Nottingham. She holds a particular interest in performance with live electronics. Together with Karlheinz Essl, professor of composition at the University of Music in Vienna, she will perform several of his works where the piano is transformed into a new being.

Karlheinz Essl @ Brisbane (Australia)

Short Term Visiting Research Fellowship
Queensland Conservatorium / Griffith University

July 11th - Aug 5th, 2016


A research fellowship grant of the Griffith University in Brisbane (AUS) brought Karlheinz Essl to Australia where he stayed for four weeks. He attended the NIME Conference 2016 and gave a keynote performance of his ground-breaking algorithmic realtime composition Lexikon-Sonate (1992-2016). In the following weeks, he composed Brisky Breath (2016) - a garland to Brisbane and its frenetic birds - which he premiered at the Queensland Conservatorium. In the same concert, he also presented el-emen' (2004/2016) for solo percussion and live-electronics where he worked with Caleb Colledge, a percussion student of Vanessa Tomlinson. Especially for the brand-new Arduino-based retro controller MAURO (Mauricio Iregui and Sebastian Jara), Essl created a new version of his realtime composition Amazing Maze (1993-2016) which was used for testing and improving this device. With Andrew Brown, Essl discussed various questions related to generative music for computer-controlled piano (like the Yamaha Disklavier) and tactile controllers for performning algorithmic compositions. In this context, he had a meeting with Stephen Emmerson who demonstrated some of his Disklavier compositions. Together with trombone player Ben Marks (Elision Ensemble, Melbourne) Essl verified that the extended playing techniques he invented for the tuba piece Si! can also be performed on a trombone.

After getting introduced into new technologies for surround recording by Garth Paine (University of Arizona), Essl made various field recordings in the botanical gardens and nature reserves of Noosa, Redcliffe, Brisbane and Stradbroke Island, followed by hydrophone recordings of the Brisbane River together with Leah Barclay and Toby Gifford. These recordings were used as sound material for studio experiments with Ambisonics and binaural audio rendering.

In the last week of his residency, Karlheinz Essl gave several classes and lectures about his compositions for toy pianos and software developments like his realtime composition environment m@ze°2, addressed to students of the Queensland Conservatorium in cooperation with the staff members John Ferguson, Leah Barclay and Erik Griswold. At a colloqium for PhD students, Essl spoke about The Chances of Chances where he explained the philosophical, scientific and spiritual foundations of his compositional practice. Finally, he was member of the PhD confirmation jury for David Chechelashvili's dissertation project Compositional Strategies of Analog Modular Synthesizers.

The ongoing artistic exchange with composer Erik Griswold and percussionist Vanessa Tomlinson resulted in a free improvisation concert which took place in a traditional Queenlander house in Brisbane.
