about

Schwingende Luftsäulen (Vibrating Air Columns) was composed, played and recorded by Werner Durand between Fall 2010 and Spring 2011, using the Pan-Ney, an instrument that he invented in 1984 and used in these recordings as the only sound source.
This is music made of air. Built from air, transmitted by air. Durand's work is conceived starting from the properties of the air passing thru the plastic tubes that constitutes the Pan-Ney.
In the stream of acoustic phenomena applied to musical construction, by way of his ethno-minimalistic approach, this music talk to us about the most ancient feeling and the most contemporary concept in music. A music coming from the far times and made for the future times. The music is accompanied/underlined by the beautiful drawings by Karlheinz Bux, that, as in his own words: "... are abstracted emblems of figures set in rotation. In their appearance, they may resemble oscillating air columns…" This music is dedicated to Tony Conrad, whose piece „Ten Years Alive On The Infinite Plane“ from 1972 inspired this particular tuning.
