Peter Pichler - Mixturtrautonium - lecture & concert @SUPERBOOTH19

Published on May 17, 2019 Superbooth Official

"A voyage to the moon"

Peter Pichler is at present the only musician worldwide who is playing the Mixturtrautonium live. The instrument is Oskar Sala´s further development of Friedrich Trautwein’s Trautonium. First presented in 1930, the Trautonium is the predecessor of the synthesizer. A wider public became aware of the Mixturtrautonium through Oskar Sala´s soundtrack-work for Hitchcocks „The Birds“.

At Superbooth19 Peter Pichler played a live-score of the documentary „ A Voyage To The Moon“ from director Manfred Durniok and Oskar Sala.

In 1974 Durniok was provided with raw film material from different NASA-Moonshots and created a unique documentary with almost unknown space-filmsequences together with Oskar Sala. Sala was scoring solely with his Mixturtrautonium.
