Minimal Revolution (2009)Link to this page: http://alien.mur.at/sound/minimalrevolution
Suite for Ariston and Live Electronic
The Ariston was possibly the first high-tech product for domestic use. A mass-manufactured product, it was relatively simply built, easy to handle and small enough to carry - comparable to today's laptops and sound programmes. A combination of these two sound worlds - our present day "computer music making" and the traditional salon music of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, is one of the main ideas behind "minimal revolution".
Two high-tech instruments, the first of which had its heyday at the beginning of the 20th century, and the second at the beginning of the 21st century, enter into a dialogue. A mechanical - electronic encounter.
