UNTERHOLZ (“undergrowth”) is a piece, that, like real undergrowth in a forest, continually changes in the course of time, i.e. from performance to performance and from place to place, carrying and sedimenting old, accruing new matter.

The base situation is an installation with sine tones played back and a video showing a very slow sequence moving through a “jungle thicket”.

Each performance of the piece is filmed and sound recorded. These recordings are then processed into the video/sound sequences for subsequent performances.

Performances may be concert length, but they can also be very long. In this case the musicians have their places and may come and go.
