Timo RUTTKAMP — Snapshots (24:35 / 2008)
Snapshots is a collection of 25 electronic pieces (stereo), each piece with a duration of exactly 59 seconds. It is planned as a work in progress, finally including 59 pieces in future times. Each performance of snapshots can and should be different concerning amount and order of the pieces. The order may but need not to be chosen by random operations. Furthermore, Snapshots can also be “performed” as a kind of sound installation, maybe in a multimedial context. The very different pieces are built with synthetic and concrete sound material of various sources and their different characters reach from abstract to emotional, playful, gestural and theatrical.
