weimar’s frühjahrstage festival has commissioned ‘input‘, to be performed on april 10, 2015. the work represents an inverted remix scenario, in which the ‘remix’ comes first and subsequently three composers envision their ‘originals’, backwards-engineering ensemble scores that are derived from the material embodied in the ‘remix.’ the composers involved are johannes k. hildebrandt, christian diemer and erik janson.
