Pausenzeichen. Ein Hörstück (Pause Signal)
Based on an idea from 1969, Timm Ulrichs produced his "Pausenzeichen-Komposition" 1989 as part of the project "Zeit-Radio-Zeit" of the Steirische Kulturinitiative Graz (Styrian Cultural Initiative Graz). This is a compilation of the characteristic melodies of the radio stations, which sound as pause fillers. Ulrichs has compiled 24 of these signations (a neologism from the ORF) of radio stations from 15 states in such a way that they form and interfere with a kind of acoustic scale and can correspond with each other. The acoustic break rooms here become the concert of an international radio orchestration. On the B-side: Ulrichs' "Serial Ein-Rillen-Musik" (1963), premiered 1965, remastered 2018. Cover design by Johann Zambryski.
