The trio DEER explores the miscellaneous sound colours of the bass clarinet and the different manners of playing it. Equipped with all kinds of electronic devices and effects, the three musicians take a close look at the sound and search for new depth in the interaction of the acoustic tone and the electronic way of examining it. In extension of the conceptual approach the trio also allows elements of improvisation in its play, thus connecting strictness with interacting freshness and stylistic playfulness.
About the piece and release ‘One’ by DEER: One single Note of a bass clarinet, played three times, calm and quietly breathing. This is the source of and by DEER, the raw material, which finds step by step its way through a bunch of electronic devices. At first hardly audible, then more and more intense, layer by layer is added to the sound. Small sound miniatures are processed by additional devices and one after another the soundslayers are piled up to a massive, complex soundsculpture. From one single note arises a hypnotic, oscillating wall of sound – psychedelic, minimalistic, exhilarating beautiful.
DEER is the bass clarinet players Hans Koch (1948）, Christian Müller (1971) and Silber Ingold (1960), three prominent heads of the experimental music scene of Biel, Switzerland. Their playful interest in electro¬acoustic experiments is not only leading to filigree sound architecture, but also to heavy and dark soundscapes.
