(2014, World premiere)
by Matthias Kranebitter
Matthias Kranebitter on 'survival of the fittest':
'survival of the fittest' is a list of darwinistically selected songs from commercials, television shows and pop song samples. An attempt of order in the motley chaos of the world.
Matthias Kranebitter studied electroacoustic composition in Vienna with Dieter Kaufmann and German Toro-Perez, media composition with Klaus-Peter Sattler, postgradual composition in Amsterdam and in Graz with Alexander Stankovski.
His music addresses aspects of our media society and trash culture with their information flood. It features a high degree of density and heterogeneity, involving of various (un)musical materials as dehierarchization and relativization of dogmas and taboo.
His works have been awarded 1st prize Gustav Mahler competition, 1st prize Project Holland Symfonia Gaudeamus Music Week, Impuls Kompositionspreis Graz and Publicity Award of Austro Mechana. For 2015 he received a scholarship from Junge Akademie at Akademie der Künste Berlin.

Stereo recording of the sound installation
(2009 - 2014)
by the ohrenhoch-Kids
mixed for the Gruson greenhouse Magdeburg from "Nocturnal1+2" and "Superfrogs and Toad Music".
Director: Knut Remond
Recording [14:02] from 25 October 2014, palm house at Gruson greenhouses Magdeburg, SinusTon - Magdeburg Days of Electroacoustic Music.
The ohrenhoch-Kids presented their sound-space installation "Tagaktiv" in the Gruson greenhouse at the Magdeburg Days of Electroacoustic Music SinusTon on 25 October.
The compositions consisting of more than 70 creations of imitated or fantasy animals were produced and installed under the title 'Nocturnal' by the ohrenhoch-Kids for the first time in 2009 in the darkened cellar room of 'ohrenhoch - the Noise Shop'. In 2013 the ohrenhoch-Kids produced "Superfrogs and Toad Music" with the same idea as the 'Nocturnal' composition and installation concept, save that it's interlarded additionally with so-called real frogs and toads, whose voices were placed at their disposal by the Animal Sound Archive of Natural History Museum of Berlin.
For the creation of the fictional animals the ohrenhoch-Kids recorded different acoustic everyday objects such as plastic cups, prepared recorder, straws, elastic bands and their voices, and processed them on the computer. They compiled these more than 70 pieces or recordings on 9 MP3 players with plugged small active speakers, and partially structured them with pauses. The pauses are important in this conception or composition as the individual MP3 players intertwine and give a fantastic spaciousness to the collective composition.
For the sound-space installation 'Tagaktiv' in the Gruson greenhouses the ohrenhoch-Kids decided for the palm house. For the entire composition they additionally composed new animal sounds. The compilation of 94 compositions for the Gruson greenhouse has been newly distributed to 12 MP3 players for the palm house. The ohrenhoch-Kids installed 'Tagaktiv' between the plants in the Gruson greenhouse and acted as guides for the small and big hearers through the fabulous sound labyrinth, combined with a botanical guided tour.
The names of the ohrenhoch-Kids who worked on this composition or sound installation between 2009 and 2014: Ferdinand, Louis, Clara, Samuel, Jacob, Chiara, Tarek, Yuri, Elias.
