Rinus van Alebeek (Netherlands, 1956)
Composing is done with a 4trackrecorder. I select fragments and put them together in short 'songs'. When a site recording provided its own narrative, I will use this recording without further interference.
Concerts will last 25 to 32 minutes. I use the fourtrackrecorder, a walkman and another walkman that is connected to an effectpedal. Normally I prepair the first minutes of the performance. After that I improvise continuously; I change cassettes every moment and react to this changes, controlling the volume of each track on the mixer. When there is time to do so, I will include recordings made in and around the venue.
