stand clear



Kai Fagaschinski | Klaus Filip





















K. F. and K. F. began their intensive collaboration early in 2004 when Kai had the opportunity to stay in Vienna for a while.
Kai plays his clarinet with an approach of sound and noise phenomena, while Klaus uses a laptop with material based on sine waves, which he can organize and manipulate in various ways. The conjoined sound of the clarinet and sine waves result in a rich spectrum of difference tones and beat frequencies, which is a basic focus of the duo besides of a wide range of dynamics and pitches. The duo sound includes very transparent and quiet noise sections, droning clusters, beauteous harmonic chords and massive vibrating tone walls ... and (near by) no glissandi.
In summer 2004 they performed at the Konfrontationen-Festival (Nickelsdorf, Austria) and did recordings for their debut-CD "Stand Clear" on Creative Sources Recordings (Lisbon) released in June 2005.
