Reconstructing Kagel


In 1969 and 1970, Mauricio Kagel “made” two instrumental theatre pieces, Unter Strom and Tactil, for experimental sound producers. Since a fully encoded and composer-authorized score is lacking, the historical performers have been the only ones to play and record these compositions. The only adequate possibility to perform these pieces anew is through reconstruction of the original performance practice and the making of a score.

Historical performance practice of post-war avant-garde music for guitar


Throughout the 20th Century, the guitar has proven itself to be an instrument of many possibilities due to the increased interest shown by avant-garde composers. Several of these composers and/or compositions are either rarely performed, or performed with considerable difficulty due to problems of various nature. The key objective of this project is the documentation and reconstruction of the historical performance practice of such pieces. This result will be achieved through gathering information from historical performers and their collaboration with specifically relevant composers. Case studies to support the research will include music by Berio, Kagel, Lachenmann and Radulescu.
