Nocturne for Alto Flute, Violoncello and Tape
"Aechome" was composed for flutist Beatrix Wagner and composer and cellist
Gerald Eckert - a piece for altoflute, violoncello and tape.
The title "Aechome" is an acronym from "aerophone", "chordophone" and
"membranophone" and refers to the three principles of sound generation this composition is about.
All electroacoustic sound of the tape part are based upon one single timpani hit on a-sharp. Form and structure of the piece is based upon a 21-tone-row, though this row is not used in a strictly serial sense.
