2006-07-18 Karlsruhe, Germany

Frank Niehusmann’s composition „Gasometer“ is one of the winners of the ZKM’s International Competition for Electroacoustic Music „Short Cuts: Beauty“; presentation of the results of this competition: 2006-07-18 in Stuttgart/Germany (Kunstmuseum) in the frame of the ISCM world new music festival;
* what the jury said about „Gasometer“:
„Frank Niehusmann shows austere beauty: In his piece he depicts the vastness of the industrial space of the „Gasometer“ and confronts it with sounds of industrial production and mining. Using these unprocessed and thus „un-alienated“ he creates an intensive listening experience which affects directly.“
