Hanno Leichtmann presents his own very individual approach to the task of remixing and reworking the IMD archive. As in his previous installations, he distills his sound material exclusively from a thematically fixed archive, in this case: concert recordings, lectures and discussions from 70 years of New Music history. These subjectively-chosen sounds were sent through his unique machinery of voltage- controlled (micro-) loopers, recorded, then finally pieced together in the studio to form the present installation/ radio feature. Here Leichtmann concentrates on the pure, original sound of the (sonic) archive: he primarily applies the traditional parameters of early electronic (tape) music (amplitude, pitch/speed, playback direction, series/cuts, but most of all: the repetition.
