The Sounds of Bartholomäus Traubeck

Some hypnotic aural landscapes by Bartholomäus Traubeck:

Years – ‘scratching’

A record player that plays slices of wood.

Two Axes in A Forest (Resonanz 1)

Two Guitars play each other by inducing the sound signal of one guitar into the other via transducers, and vice versa. By looping both guitars through each other a state of perfect resonance is almost achieved. But since these two industrially manufactured objects are not completely alike, the frequencies never match perfectly and subtle shifts happen in the texture of the sound.

A Long Echo to Noise

a vinyl record consisting of a locked groove being played over and over until it completely wears out. The sound-sample is taken from the Beach Boys’ hit-single ‘Good Vibrations’, a song notoriously famous for being sampled excessively throughout music culture since its release.
