About

With his new album, Gunnar Geisse expresses his fascination with accepting the fleetingness of the present time and his perception of its changing nature whilst also reflecting upon the complexity of human existence through art.

Geisse developed an instrument he calls a “laptop guitar,” a computerenhanced extension of his former main instrument (the electric guitar) which allows him to take analogue playing to the digital level. He uses the possibility of software-based real-time conversion of audio into MIDI data to control virtual instruments and samplers. It does not matter which type of audio signal is used as a source: Input signals can be from electric guitar, speech, or noises; even “translation” of music into other music is possible in this way.

Today, Gunnar Geisse uses the computer both as an instrument for improvisation and as a production tool in creating well over 20 radio plays, in commissioned works for musica viva, the Munich Opera Festival, the Munich Biennale and the Donaueschinger Musiktage. Geisse used real-time manipulation of choral singing and orchestra in Gregor Hubner’s De Profundis. In addition to his work as an electric guitarist with among others the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunk, the Radio Symphony Orchestra of the SWR and the Broadway Musical Company New York, his love for improvised and experimental music has resulted in collaboration with Peter Brotzmann, Vinko Globokar, Phil Minton, David Moss, Olga Neuwirth, Mike Svoboda, Michael Wertmuller and many others.
