Mikael Ericsson and Amici del Canto in a memorable Mash Up between Liszt and Stockhausen. The event took place this summer at Harp Art Lab Sweden when the inventor of Millophonia, Mikael Ericsson, scratched slowly with a deconstructed Franz Liszt piano roll over a song by Karlheinz Stockhausen, beautifully performed by Amici del Canto from Wuppertal, Germany.
Kvarnofonen aka Millophonia is a site specific sound installation in Harp Art Lab windmill by Mikael Ericsson. The sails, of the windmill, are running two enormous bellows that are supplying a modified pipe organ with air. The sound is controlled by a pneumatic mechanism that operates the pipe organ action via piano-rolls that are preprogrammed by the artist. This procedure is 100% handmade by cutting, punching and stitching it all together to feed Millophonia with fresh sound art. harpartlab.se
