Chants Magnetiques (hommage a A.Breton & Ph.Soupault)
Thoughts come tumbling in, unordered and often without any
connection with the composition on which you are working. This
was also the case during the time I was composing Ritournelles I
for soprano and computer. A flood of material and studies came
into existence which could not be fit into my Ritournelles. From
out this material resulted my piece "Chants Magnetiques" on
January 20th, 1985 in two hours by writing a command string at a
high tempo and reading it into the MIDIM system. The piece was
immediately recorded on 4-track tape and no corrections were
later applied. It had its premiere two days later on January
22nd,85 at Muziekcentrum Vredenburg in Utrecht.
Summer 2021 Archivation of Master Tapes
The tape archive of Werner Kaegis works will be incorporated in the Sonology Archive in The Hague. The main works will be digitalized from the original master tapes. We hope that most of the electronic works will be published in the next years!! We are very happy that finally this wonderful material can be saved for the future.
New VOSIM66 software by Heinerich Kaegi
Between 2020 and 2021 Heinerich Kaegi and Ludger Hurts developed a new Vosim programm VOSIM66 based on the original ideas of Werner Kaegis Vosim and Midim systems. This programm is created in GNU Octave and runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. Seen the ongoing development, the material cannot be downloaded at the moment, but you can send us an email for more information.
