guitar, harp, violoncello & 4-channel live-elektronics
ensemble appartment-house (anton lukosevice, rhodrie davis, seth josel)
& hans w. koch at st. peter, koeln
four musicians sitting in a circle. a rope with several knots is woven through their strings (and through a special sensor for the electronics) and its ends are tied together. the piece is played by different ways of pulling all together in the same or different directions and with the free hand playing on the strings. the electronic gains its data also from that rope and uses this for modulation and space-projection of the instrummental sounds.
in german the expression "an einem strang ziehen - pulling all on one rope" has the meaning of several people working together in an harmonic manner.
