Dorothée Hahne: 'dance macabre'
for 4 Soprano Recorder & Live-Electronic (2007)

In memoriam (Ingrid Kreutz † 1987)

Starting from the danse macabre ”ad mortum festinamus” from the medieval Codex Libre Vermell de Montserrat and inspired by its text, the ”dance macabre” for recorder and live electronics was composed for the recorder-player Maria Hoffmann on the occasion of the 2006 ERTA competition in Austria. This version for four recorders was composed for QNG - Quartet New Generation. The electronics consist of a stereo accompanying tape for which the sounds of the cemetery gate in the Münsterland town of Schöppingen were recorded and processed in various digital variations. By transposition and stretching, the sounds of the cemetery gate become virtual instruments, over which the notes of the recorders, played live, duplicate themselves, with a time lag, in a meditative ostinato. The overlayering of four recorder parts gives rise to complementary rhythms, which allow associations with the medieval dance steps of the original. The text and original melody of the medieval danse macabre show that death is an event joyfully awaited, and that live until then was understood as a kind of phase, or as preparation for life after death.
