sound-field
sound fields are live-compositions, installations or hybrids of both. this series of works could be best described as an aural practice, rather than individual hermetic works. the compositional approach is a continual concrète practice, where sound material is applied, diffused and re-recorded over multiple iterations of performances and in response to the surroundings, FOR-SITE.  the ways of using sounds are historically derived from musique concrète, so composing starts with found and collected sounds, not with an abstract idea, CONCRÈTE. and the sound material - over time, not just for one finished piece - is unfolded, processed, recorded again, modified and re-applied again to new listening situations. the listening space is then shared with the audience. listening as a process is being foregrounded, to encourage a simultaneous attentiveness to the sound field one is sitting in and to an inner field that is resonating and/or expanding. so rather than following pierre schaefer’s call for a “reduced listening” neumann is inviting a spatially expanded listening. and the reduction (of narrative and semantic content) becomes the responsibility of the composer.
