11 sound games for accordeon, live electronics, video projection and dexterity games
with Kirsten Reese (composition/programming),
Eva Zöllner (accordion),
Sukandar Kartadinata (sensors/programming)
Kugelspiele – are 11 different small scale dexterity games from the 1970ies or 80ies found at a flea market in Paris. Tiny balls have to be manoeuvered through labyrinthlike patterns. Live-electronic sounds are triggered and influenced by the movement of the balls. The accordeon player reads the movement of the balls, which are projectoed onto a video creen, like an instrumental score.
