distributed on 299 limited fünf minuten klangstabil vinyl records
the 7" record "fünf minuten klangstabil" titled "fünf
minten klangstabil 1" is in itself 5 minutes of klangstabil. It's
part of a concept which is outlined here. As every human (animal, organism)
has some special quality, i.e. look, character, smell, klangstabil tried
to find their very own sound.
procedure: at first, both tried seperate, their own tones, exploring their
own sounds. thereby some interesting facets of each were discovered. to
create the klangstabil sound, both sounds were combined. whenever klangstabil
comes together, it is the sound, as an initmate act in it's widest range,
which is revealed here.
the sound itself: the sound remains exactly constant for exact
5 minutes. the sound has no attack- or decay phase, it remains constant,
as well as the overall loudness and the volume of all the tones in the
mix. audible are parts of tones (atonal), mixes of sound and timbre, which
could only be created with the help of electronic music instruments.
energy: the sound in itself is steady, yet needs energy to remain constant.
adding or removing energy from it would result in a change followed by
a collapse. to explain the energy-theory more vivid, a turntable with
pitch adjustment could be used. the persistence of the sound (exactly
5 minutes), describes the monochronism, which klangstabil practices sickly
concerning organizational matters.
effect: fünf minuten klangstabil 1 sounds like the very early
synthesizer ages, and thats how it should be. as always, klangstabil deals
with the origins. examining the sound from it's technical view, it would
be interesting, which frequency the sound has, of how many different pitches
it consists, if the sound is unison, is it mathematically harmonic. as
well as the subjective approach, how you feel the sound, what it causes
in yourself and if it complies your own understanding of harmony.
klangstabil: "when we played played the sound we noticed, that certain
frequencies in our voice were wiped out while talking at each other. even
here, the klangstabil idea of "fünf minuten klangstabil 1"
is reflected. the sound is like a perfume, it's a sound-perfume so to
speak, just when you walk around in the room and concentrate on the sound,
the whole spectrum of the sound gets clear. the sound can be used anywhere,
it could be mixed with other music (i.e. "fünf minuten klangstabil
2"), also used as raw material to create new things.
fünf minuten klangstabil 2: the other side also has the basic
klangstabil idea. the title starts and ends shortly afterwards, but it
goes through an "evolutionary destruction", which is necessary
for it's survival. a circle which is closed now, because it's stable (stabil)-
