Funktion Yellow-b


The third performance in my series of improvisations based around Gottfried Michael Koenig's Funktion pieces took place in the open air with a threat of rain in Stuttgart. No delay unit and no looping pedal was used, so the setup had been reduced even more than the previous performance due to weight restriction. The sound was still mono but I used the same system as the Stimmung system, with 6 channels all focused towards the centre. This created some excellent pahsing effects and I had the opportunity to wander around the space a bit to hear the effect of the initial drone in the space. This performance lasted a couple of minutes longer than the optimal 13 minutes, but it was great to be able to play with some of the sounds occurring in the park, such as the steam train that takes visitors around the perimeter.
