4-channel switchable mic preamp mounted on trumpet. Phantom powered.
Like “Berlin, Mitte der Welt” this is a spinoff of the G-Player series. As usual (some of) the sounds are a 1:1 interpretation of topographic data, this time imprinted on a vinyl disk that sits on top of an elaborate object that alludes to planetary motion. Above a chandelier-pendulum with a laser pointer “scratches” across the disk’s grooves which in turn is sonified and played back thru a rotating speaker, part of the above object.

Contracting work for twosuns, a Berlin multi-media company. Twister is part of the sound subsystem of enclued, an interactive multi-media development environment. Initially a multi-channel soundcard with embedded spatialization functionality, which was later moved to the host PC.
After two smaller concerts at Schloss Gottesaue and Stephanssaal (both in Karlsruhe) the first major Topophonien installation took place at Badischer Kunstverein. Both 16- and 24-channel systems were used to their full extent…
The Topophonien project marks the point at which I turned my hobby of building music-related electronics into a job. Prior to this I had mostly tinkered with various guitar effect circuits, so when Sabine Schäfer approached me in 1990 with a request if I could build her a computer controlled spatialization mixer this was a rather tall order. Starting with a small 4×8 matrix with noisy VCAs and limited control, we expanded over the years to ever bigger systems with up to 40 DSP-driven channels and realtime spatialization control.
