André O. Möller - Musik für Orgel und eine(n) Tonsetzer(in) CD 21460
Eva Maria Houben, Organ. "what do you do, if you work with just intonation and wish to write a piece for organ? you have to deal with the relation between equally tempered and over or undertonal (just) intonation. in 2001 i had several opportunities to make a study of some wonderful instruments. this eventually put me on the path towards this composition. in this piece only those frequencies of the organ sound that have close to whole numbered ratios (+/ 6 cents) to a fundamental (in this case C' at about 32 Hz). because the frequencies are never perfectly tuned a result of the organ's tempered tuning more or less strong beatings and frictions emerge, that rhythmically and timbrally shape the inner life of the sounds. a realisation of this piece strongly depends on the disposition of the instrument and the performance space. the version at hand corresponds approximately to the first performance by eva maria houben at st. suitber1us church, dortmund october 3, 2003. for this cd i tried to record the organ in such a way that the playback, instead of reproducing the church environment, projects the instrument into the listener's space.
