Recorded on 12.11.2019 at the Emmaus Kirche in Berlin in the frame of the concert series Unerhörte Musik
In the piece I use material recorded with the organ of Sankt Annen Kirche in Berlin Zepernick. The material is processed and played like an instrument as well. In the concert the musicians thus communicate with a room which is located elsewhere.

Raumsprung is a collaboration with the organ player thomas noll and the recorder player susanne fröhlich. The musicians communicate with rooms that are located elsewhere – namely churches situated along the subway line 7. Raumsprung I & II are the beginning of a series that we are going to continue in the future. For these pieces thomas and I recorded sound material of organs in two Apostel Paulus Kirche and the Zum Heilsbronnen Kirche, both situated in Schöneberg. With the material recorded in the Apostel Paulus Kirche the four-channel electronics track for raumsprung – linie 7 – I was created. Raumsprung – linie 7 – II uses material from the Zum Heilsbronnen Kirche.

A composition for organ, female voice and live electronics on 8 speakers composed for the E-live concert in the Nicolai church in Utrecht. The words are taken from the poem Men Moet by Dutch poet Toon Tellegen.The organ in the Nicolai church has registers that fade in gradually. That gives you the possibility to let sounds begin with nothing and by adding registers let it swell more and more. This technique is the basis of the composition.

Forever More is a piece for movement and sound developed in collaboration by choreographer and dancer João Cidade and myself. The two disciplines are so closely connected with each other that they form a symbiosis.
The work takes form from the physical and emotional relationship we both have with the space (Acker Stadt Palast) where the piece is taking place. Being also a tattoo artist, for Cidade, marking people forever became a job. With this idea of marking in mind we set out to challenge the thought of how a performance space and the people that experience a performance can also be marked, if not forever then for as long as possible. Forever More aims to provoke thought around the identity of individuals in relation to performance spaces, while flirting with the idea of an emotional archive in an art scene affected by a pandemic.
Premiered 23. October 2020
till human voices wake us

Final research presentation of Felix Dompreh in the SODA program at HZT-Berlin.
The music is improvised within a framework that correlates with the structure of the movement material. I work with a live set based on loops and effects and all musical material is generated with african instruments.
