Matthias Kaul, percussions

Anyone performing John Cage’s music cannot avoid the phenomenon of silence. In his view, everything audible can in principle be music, even if it is not composed: “If you want to know the truth of the matter, the music I prefer, even to my own or anybody else's, is what we are hearing if we are just quiet.” In all the works interpreted by him, Matthias Kaul deals with the question of which forms can principally take silence and how it can be realized in the most concrete way. Which instruments are used, how does the instrumentation develop throughout the entire piece, and how can the acoustic results remain exciting for almost half an hour? How can a large number of instruments and sounds be brought into play without conveying the impression of arbitrariness? Matthias Kaul is not only a percussionist, he is also a composer and therefore predestined for such a task. He develops his own concepts which then have to be checked for their compatibility with the score. In "Variations I", Matthias Kaul plays with various forms of silence. From the arrangement of the score consisting of transparent sheets with dots and lines, the performer generates concrete tones, sounds and "pauses". The playing instructions for "Inlets" are still more rudimentary; there are three performers, each of whom has four conch shells. The shells are filled with water and turned round and round; then a fire fueled by pine cones begins, and the piece ends with a tone from one of the shells blown like a horn. In "Child of Tree", the instructions of the composer present a rather diffuse area of possibilities. The performer must toss coins and decide on the basis of the results as to how many sections he divides the eight minutes into and which instruments he uses in which sections. In "Composed Improvisation", Cage gave exact instructions consisting of time brackets which provide a timeframe for the music. The tonal structure within this framework is left to chance. "27´10.554´´" for solo percussion is a finished composition of this project, with the title indicating the duration of the piece. For this major project, Kaul used 90 different instruments and objects altogether.
