HANNA HARTMAN - BLACK BAT
10” Single Sided Vinyl Release Komplott Cat.No: Elupre10
RELEASE 16.03.31 BLACK BAT was composed for the speaker system of BERGHAIN, a state-of- the-art bunker sound system for contemporary electronic music and a central pivot of Berlin nightlife. The resonance in the large room is an immense experience set off by the forceful sound system. The space and the phenomena of impact become topics enacted within the musical score of BLACK BAT. Approached like a kind of sonar mapping, the music appears like a site specific document engraved in seismic patterns on the vinyl acetate surface. Essential. BLACK BAT features contra bass clarinet by the acclaimed Berlin musician Theo Nabicht.
Commissioned by Deutschlandradio Kultur & Sclossmediale Werdenberg. Premiered as part of the Art's Birthday and Ultraschall Festival in Berlin. Black Bat was given an honorary mention of Ars Electronica 2015
