As part of the "papier & klang" festival, the video documentation of the composition "Schatten - für symfonisches Orchester" (Shadow - for a symphonic orchestra) will be screened publicly for the first time. The piece was a commission project of the Philharmonic Orchestra Bremerhaven under the direction of Marc Niemann.
The focus of the piece deals with versatile paper sounds produced by the orchestra musicians. You can hear the sounds of rustling, tearing, or crumpling paper. In contrast to this are the instrumental sounds of the orchestra, which are chromatic, interlaced and arranged in ascending scales.
