The improvisational combination of voice and electronic-synthetic sounds in the context of the cybernetic plus/minus score adds a new musical dimension to the interpretation of EXPO. It was important for us not to sample the two voices (Vetter/Nikeprelevic) and not to modify them with live electronics in any way. Voices and electronics stood face to face in their pure forms and even more: Our artistic approach was to make the voices sound electronic and to have the electronic sounds take on the more acoustic characteristics of the human voice. This way, a sound-mixture evolved that made it difficult to differentiate between the vocal and the electronic sounds.
The two vocalists were challenged by embellishing their voices with noise-like elements and to come as close as possible to electronic sounds. And F.X.Randomiz was faced with the task of coaxing the warmth, dynamics, flexibility and natural imperfections of a human voice out of his digital-electronic instruments. In addition, each of the three players had a radio, which, like a ‘secret’ performer, wove itself into the pattern of voices, noises and digital-electronic sounds.

PHONEMONAL: the free-of-sense space
For the vocalist and composer-performer Natascha Nikeprelevic space is binding. The actual state is the epitome of creative power. The creation of a movement, of a sound, of an object, of a space is oriented first and foremost right on the essence, the thing itself.
She takes the challange of the exhibition < Phonemonal > to fill the space not only acoustically, but also visually, in terms of „total immersion“, and playfully seeks the space behind what language could be as well.
With musician, composer and sound artist F.X.Randomiz Natascha Nikeprelevic works as Duo FU ACUNE. For < Phonemonal > he integrates the voice of the vocalist into a multichannel sound installation, which will be running during the whole exhibition period.
Language in its complexity and vitality serves F.X.Randomiz as a benchmark for an organic handling of digital soundprocessing. Trying to catch and emphasize the essence of a respective sound is the guideline of his timeless seeming hybrid sound aesthetics, which allows a maximum space for associations. Stylistically he programmatically opens the borders between experiment, New Music, Electronics, Noise and Pop.
F.X.Randomiz studied at the Academy Of Media Arts Cologne (KHM). Beside award winning radio plays and productions for Studio Akustische Kunst (WDR3 radio) he has taken over the sound creation for several works of artist Herwig Weiser. The installation „zgodlocator“ won the Nam June Paik Award.
