  • Stefan Prins, Composer: Fremdkörper #3 (mit Michael Jackson)
    level very present in and central to most of my compositions in the sense that I continuously insert strange objects fremdkörper mainly everyday objects like aluminium pizza dishes clothing pegs in the instruments to alter the way they are being played and hence the way that they are perceived This is it Electronic study for Fremdkörper 3 mit Michael Jackson About the Fremdkörper cycle According to scientists we ll reach the so called point of singularity somewhere between 2030 and 2040 Once that point is reached the distinction between body and its technological extensions can be upheaved The Fremdkörper cycle which currently consists of three compositions for different ensembles plus live electronics focuses on how technology influences the human existence on an increasingly fundamental level In these compositions neither the body nor its technological extensions are seen as the fremdkörper but they are seen as fremdkörper in relation to each other In a bodily context the technology is the fremdkörper while in a technological context it s the body which is the fremdkörper In all these compositions several of these contextshifts can be found The concept of a fremdkörper is present on several other levels as well Of course the musical instruments can be seen as fremdkörpers too while I make use of everyday objects fremdkörper as defined by medical sciences to be inserted attached to these instruments And even the electronic sounds exhibit different degrees of being fremdkörper according to the context In Fremdkörper 1 all electronic sounds are directly derived from the instrumental sounds while I make use of electronic sounds generated with analog no input mixing techniques and of corrupted audiofiles found on the internet in Fremdkörper 2 In Fremdkörper 3 mit Michael Jackson all electronic sounds are generated using digital processing techniques on several intro s of songs by Michael Jackson Fremdkörper WIKTIONARY German 4 8 2010 Silbentrennung Fremd kör per Plural Fremd kör per Bedeutungen ein Teil der nicht Bestandteil eines Ganzen ist der normalerweise nicht dazu gehört Herkunft zusammengesetzt aus fremd und Körper im Sinne von Ding Synonyme Medizin Corpus alienum Beispiele Bei dem Unfall sind kleine Fremdkörper in die Wunde eingedrungen die nun chirurgisch entfernt werden müssen Der Körper könnte die neue Niere als Fremdkörper betrachten und abstoßen Auf dem Röntgenbild werden die metallischen Fremdkörper gut zu sehen sein Corpus alienum WIKIPEDIA German 4 8 2010 Am häufigsten dringen Fremdkörper in das Gewebe durch Wunden ein Sind sie keimfrei so können sie einheilen und werden vom Körper in einer bindegewebigen Schale abgekapselt Sind sie dagegen mit körperfeindlichen Substanzen oder Keimen behaftet so werden sie durch Eitern ausgestoßen oder müssen gar operativ entfernt werden Dazu wird in den meisten Fällen die sogenannte Fremdkörperzange verwendet Als Fremdkörper bezeichnet man oft auch jemanden der von einer Gruppe als störend empfunden wird oder sich selbst als störend betrachtet siehe dazu auch Außenseiter und Mobbing Auch eine Sache die in einem Zusammenhang als störend gilt wird manchmal als Fremdkörper bezeichnet So gelten unpassende Ausdrücke in einem ansonsten einheitlichen
