Klaus Gesing Solo / Sound of mind
Title: Sound of mind
Group: Klaus Gesing Solo
Personnel: Klaus Gesing (soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, loops, electronics)
Year of Publication: 2016
In his first solo work “reaLTime”, the proportion between written and improvised parts is kept in a fine balance.
In sound of mind the composed material outweighs the improvised sections.
This conceptual difference moves the composition closer to contemporary classical music, for the concepts of interpretation and reproducibility are of central importance.
Still, the main aspect of Klaus Gesing’s solo concept remains unaltered:
Everything happens in reaLTime.
No pre-prepared soundtracks, no samples, no clips.
The listener can hear and follow the journey of a single, fragile melody turning into widespread sonic landscapes, kaleidoscopic rhythms and multifaceted textures.
