Cloud Seeding, 12. min., ambisonics format, Berlin, 2018
The piece was premiered at Martin-Gropius-Bau within the program "Immersion" of Berliner Festspiele.
The sound that is being used in the piece derives from sonification. During my residency at the Northern Nevada Science Center (NNSC) I collected data that has its origin in the experiments of artificially enhanced cloud condensation. Later on, I used this data as the basis of sound synthesis for this piece.

The Duo ad lib. results from the artistic exchange between Andreas Staffel and Julius Holtz in which two different artistic personalities and attitudes meet each other.Together both composers perform self-originated pieces that are written for the very personal analog electronics setup of Holtz and include inside piano and preparation technics that have been developed by Andreas Staffel. The recording is an excerpt from an improvisation that took place at the closing concert of a residency at Miso Music.
