descriptions, reviews, &c.

Since the 1980's Werner Dafeldecker and Theo Nabicht have repeatedly collaborated in diverse musical and artistic contexts on projects between composition and improvisation. However, it was not until Summer of 2010 that they began to record as a duo. Using doublebass and contrabass clarinet they staged not only a programmatic exploration of the possibilities of the lower frequency register, but also an unmediated encounter of their respective artistic positions. Dafeldecker's work has been associated since the time of so-called 'reductionism' with the notion of an aesthetic of presence that experimentally mines the inherent aesthetic possibilities of elemental sound at a microscopic level. In contrast, for Nabicht as a composer and performer, the expressive and narrative aspects of music always had priority over an experimental performance practice. Vessel's music furnishes proof of the fact that these different artistic postures need not be irreconcilable; instead, their music intentionally oscillates between sensualism and sense, between the presence of sound and musical representation. Imaginative moving images and articulations of a virtual corporeality spring from this liminal zone between materiality and message, between experimental sound research and elaborate musical vocabulary - physiognomies, gestures, and shapes overlap in this zone to create expressive scenarios and sonic close-ups revealing the multivalent anatomy and symbiosis of sounds and noises. The structures in Vessel's pieces, which were worked out in rehearsals, show a high degree of compositional coherence. They take shape from the sometimes delicate, sometimes violent physicality of the instruments at work. They find their almost thematic concentration in the characteristic kinetics of the clearly defined musical material, thus challenging the relationship between the forms of the sensible and the conventions of the assignment of meaning.


Artist Biographies:

"Werner Dafeldecker was born in Vienna in 1964 and studied the double bass which he plays with passion. As a musician, composer and sound artist he takes advantage of the manifold possibilities offered by electro-acoustics. His musical projects are often inspired and deduced by outside influences such as architecture, science, photography and film - partially resulting in the creation of graphical scores for various ensembles and instrumental performers. Werner also focuses on site specific projects, field recording and opposing natural and environmental sounds with synthetic variants. He has built up an extensive sound archive and created several electroacoustic pieces for radio and film. Around ninety sound-recordings are documenting his artistic framework. He held lectures and workshops presenting his work i.a. at University Bellas Artes-Madrid, Hochschule für Gestaltung-Karlsruhe, RMIT University-Melbourne and Edith Cowan University-Perth.
