Vibrance brings together a selection of artists working with acoustic activity as primal material through the angle of cross-disciplinary practice. It acts as a catalyser of contemporary practices in the field of sound, open hardware and performativity, aiming to stage a scenario in which presence, simulation, chaos and fictional control operate as protagonists.

Clemens Hausch is one of the founders of the Vienna record label Moozak that explores experimental music with heart and soul, and aims at sounding the borderlins of musical expression. Moozak is into ambient, noise, improvisational music, electroacoutstics and many other subgenres that broaden musical perception.

The Hour of the Wolf

The Hour of the Wolf is an improvisational piece upon an associative score performed by Stefan Brunner and Pedro Lopes. Stefan & Pedro are both experienced performance artists who met at an innovators & creative conference where they were both invited as speakers discussing new musical interfaces and the impact of bodies in technology. Soon, they found out that they not only share a common musical taste, but are also neighbors in Berlin.

They quickly decided to go into the studio together, where they started working on «The Hour of the Wolf», an improvisational piece by Stefan Brunner. The piece is based on an associative «story», divided into 8 chapters. Both musicians refect upon the structural text to generate an ever changing piece which, while being fully improvised, is still based on the solid foundation of a common storyline. Unlike most improvisational methodologies, the associative and structural aspects present in Hour of the Wolf allow for rapid intercuts between the musicians and a multi-layered dialog of emotions, sounds and images.

Peter Kutin┬áis based in Vienna and works with sound. He has realised a wide variety of works within the field of contemporary and advanced electronic music.
