descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Schall und Klang is the result of Christina Kubisch's extensive fieldwork on the trail of Hermann Scherchen (1891-1966), conductor and key figure in 20th century new music. After moving to the village of Gravesano (Ticino/Northern Italy) in 1954, Scherchen established an electroacoustic experimental studio on his premises and created a meeting place for scientists, composers, musicians and sound engineers from all over the world. Among his guests were Iannis Xenakis, Luc Ferrari, Edgar Varese and Luigi Nono, just to name a few.

Originally commissioned and broadcasted by Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Schall und Klang is a personal portrait of Scherchen and his time in Gravesano. Kubisch brings together archival footage from the Scherchen estate and the Scherchen archive at Akademie der Kunste in Berlin, tape recordings, recited texts from Scherchen's own quarterly "Gravesaner Blatter" as well as her own compositions and field recordings referring to her research made on site in 2016."-Fragment Factory
