The Soundgate concert project is a whole landscape of unique instruments
which realize the "orchestra". The "unvisible" center of the whole scene are the four gates for this musical "transit".
One gate has 32 iron bells in a circular arrangement. This shape makes it possible to play the bells like a planetary
movement. The total arrangement consists of 290 sound elements intergrate in 20 sound machine objects.
This is a playful connection from improvised music and composed
sequences with the machine instruments of Christof Schläger. The main connection is the natural sound of klassical instruments
and the pure acoustic sound of the mechanical machine instruments. It is a meeting between composed moments from the machines
and intuitive, fresh responses from the musicians.
