Computer, Software und die Möglichkeiten digitaler Klangerzeugung prägen seit vier Jahrzehnten das künstlerische Schaffen von Karlheinz Essl. Der Wiener Komponist und Klangkünstler fand vor einigen Jahren durch das Experimentieren mit modularen analogen Synthesizern einen neuen Zugang zum Live-Musizieren. Dieser ist eng mit den intuitiven Möglichkeiten und Widerständen dieser Geräte verbunden. In seiner Soloperformance präsentiert Karlheinz Essl neue Werke für modulare Synthesizer, Transducer und No-Input-Mixer, die er selbst zur Uraufführung bringen wird.
