Florian Hollerweger and Christine Scherzer: Stimmen (2019)
The five-channel electroacoustic composition Stimmen is a celebration of the human voice, of orality as a medium of communication that—precisely by stretching the securities of asserted meaning—reveals its truth to those who keep listening in the absence of words. Berlin-based vocalist and performance artist Christine Scherzer has given the piece its voice. Sound artist Florian Hollerweger has assembled the resulting recordings into the final composition. The piece was premiered in October 2019 at Chicago’s Rare Nest Gallery, with the kind support of Keith Bringe. This project is partially supported by a Faculty Development Grant from Columbia College Chicago.
