Composition: Michael Pisaro-Liu (2018)
In Micheal Pisaros low-key piece Der erste Stern ist das letzte Haus seemingly insignificant events is given a sonic shape. Forty sound sculptures of withering leaves in miniature format. A variation piece with a clear focus on the details where every leaf, or in our transcription; every musical gesture, is presented in its own right, always unique and at the same time similar to the previous and the following.
For the performance Henrik developed a series of structure sticks that was moved across a contact microphone in order to, with a minimum of means, be able to present each leaf in the score with a unique sound. On the sticks different structures where applied, such as leaf, straw, metal stick, bubbel wrap, zipper, bark, elastic etc, etc.
