Detailed information:

A tiento is a form of keyboard music that originated in Spain in the mid-15th century. Thomas Köner's first encounter with this musical genre goes back to a commission from Frankfurter Gesellschaft für Neue Musik, for which he chose to do an interpretation of Antonio Cabezon’s "Tiento del primer tono" (1570). He rearranged and performed the work with gongs, piano, and live electronics in 2012. "Tiento de la Luz" is Köner's second tiento, succeeds "Tiento de las Nieves" (2014) and precedes the upcoming "Tiento de la Oscuridad". While "Tiento de las Nieves" is a work for solo performer and live electronics, the instrumentation of "Tiento de la Luz" is expanded: in addition to Köner's distinct live electronics, there are two piano parts, percussion, and viola da gamba.

For Thomas Köner the difference between writing electronic music, like "Permafrost" (1993), and creating music with classical instruments and electronics is only of gradual nature. At the core of Köner's works is always a sense of place (topos) and tone colour. He often travels around the world and record sounds and images, and this can result in sonic topographies like "La Barca (2009)", an epic panorama of 22 locations on five continents, or "Novaya Zemlya" (2012), based on his engagement with an island in the Russian arctic. Köner experiences the place and tone as unique voices of these locations, but he is aware that these associations are purely personal.
