Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Klassik
Solo Piano III – Abschluss der Solo Piano-TrilogieEs ist der Schlussakt – und wie immer tauchen vor dem Sprint in Richtung Ziellinie die letztenProbleme auf, müssen die letzten Lösungen gefunden werden. Wie die beiden vorangegangenenAlben findet es ein überwiegend glückliches Ende in C-Dur, doch auf dem Weg dorthin gibt esmehr Dissonanzen, Spannungen und Unklarheiten.Solo Piano III markiert einen weitaus schwierigeren Wendepunkt.Die Zusammenarbeit mit anderen Künstlern setzt er fort (u.a. Room 29 mit Jarvis Cocker, Ibeyi,Toddla T), doch mittlerweile ist es Chilly Gonzales egal, ob seine Musik jedermann gefällt odernicht. Fortan werden falsche Noten nicht mehr glattgebügelt: Die geheimnisvollen Akkorde undseltsamen Strukturen besitzen einen solchen Suchtfaktor, dass sie schließlich wie unvermeidlichklingen. Während Gonzales' eigens gegründete Musikschule, das Gonzervatory, ihren erstenJahrgang absolviert hat, ist ihr Lehrer wieder zum ewigen Schüler geworden – und das ohne Angst,die Musik für sich selbst sprechen zu lassen.Die musikalische Reinheit von Solo Piano III ist kein Gegengift für unsere Zeit, sie reflektiert alldas Schöne wie auch Hässliche, das uns umgibt.

Near the end of the old millennium, someone once rapped, "Being futuristic these days means being futuristic on your own terms," which is entirely fitting when said rapper records an album of solo piano instrumentals. (Perhaps less instructive is what said rapper went on to say: "Being futuristic means loving worms, saving your sperm, wearing your pubes in a perm.") The former Chilly Gonzales has a hint of Gershwin in his playing, an urbane, contemplative take on the blues that sometime turns into a wry smile. He also has a hint of Satie, the spare and haunted sound of a music box turning slowly to a halt as it comes to the end of its wind. But what he also has is entirely his own, which not only makes this the best album of solo piano instrumentals by a rapper extant but also one of the finest solo piano albums not by a jazz or classical performer. Obviously, there's a duality to any man who lit up stages with Peaches but also played with and produced Jane Birkin and Charles Aznavour, but Solo Piano is a disarmingly wonderful record. - allmusic.com

LP | 1986 | US | Reissue (Musique Plastique)

Release:1986 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Electronic / Dance, Klassik
Musique Plastique (Visible Cloaks, Pedro) rescue a nearly lost soundtrack to a Belgian avant-theatrical work from the 80s. For fans of Nuno Canavarro, Roberto Musci and Vito Ricci. Like the wings Daedalus crafted for his son Icarus, John Gilbert Colman’s score for sampler, voice and chamber orchestra almost melted away completely, disappearing into the tides of time. The album originally served as the score to an avant-garde production of the Greek myth that toured the Belgian theatre circuit in 1986. Director Guy Cassiers cast the play with 45 developmentally disabled actors enrolled at the Krauwelenhof school in Antwerp, working for six months with the young actors (aged 12-17) to discover and develop their talents, creating (by all accounts) a deeply moving piece of visual theatre. Rather than using dialogue, Cassier used movement, costumes and music tell the fable, words were only present as text fragments within the score, spoken by members of the chorus or sung by Rolande van Der Paal. Colman's compositions elevate the experimental narrative with broad shifts in mood, utilizing a pop-concrète style by incorporating sampled squeaking balloons, environmental recordings, tuned percussion, drum computer, and voice to accompany the traditional small chamber instrumentation. The music is reminiscent of other avant-theatrical pieces from that era by Nuno Canavarro, Milesi & Bacalov, Todd Barton, Vito Ricci and Roberto Musci, while standing on its own as a unique and moving piece of minimal music. Remastered DMM pressing.

G.I. Gurdjieff was an Armenian and Greek philosopher, spiritual teacher, and musician, whose teachings of The Fourth Way influenced thousands worldwide and created communities that still exist to this day. His goal was to teach humans to reach a higher consciousness out of the "waking sleep" he considered most to be living in. Music was an important part of his teachings and these brilliant harmonium improvisations were recorded in 1949 in Paris, just a short time before his death. Droning and ethereal, these beautiful pieces mark a pinnacle in the work of a legend of human spirituality.

Steve Reich
Drumming
2LP | 1971 | US | Reissue (Superior Viaduct)
29,99 €*
Release:1971 / US – Reissue
Genre:Klassik
Steve Reich’s Drumming is regarded as one of the most important musical works of the last century. Distilled through his studies of African percussion in Ghana during 1970 and Balinese gamelan music, Reich revolutionized our understanding of polyrhythms, sculpting a new sonic territory to illuminate the radical potential of Minimalism. Divided into four sections, performed without pause, Drumming is written for eight small tuned drums, three marimbas, three glockenspiels, piccolo and voice. The singers recite melodic patterns that mimic the sounds of the instruments, gradually rising to the surface and then fading out. The overall effect can be transfixing—pulling listeners into the rhythm and possessing a raw immediacy, directness and energy. The premier performances of Drumming took place in December 1971 in New York City—first at The Museum of Modern Art, then at Brooklyn Academy of Music and finally at Town Hall where this recording was made—and featured the composer along with a cast of longtime collaborators including Art Murphy, Steve Chambers, Russ Hartenberger, James Preiss, Jon Gibson, Joan La Barbara, Judy Sherman, Jay Clayton, Ben Harms, Gary Burke, Frank Maefsky and James Ogden. Originally released in 1972 by gallerist John Gibson in a small private edition, Drumming represents the culmination of Reich’s investigation into rhythmic phase relationships and its early realization captures a remarkably organic feel, especially compared to the more widely known version on Deutsche Grammophon from 1974.

Der jüngst verstorbene Jóhann Jóhannsson beendete kurz vor seinem Tod sein neues Album.„Englabörn & Variations“ erscheint nun wie geplant. Es ist ein berührendes posthumes Zeugnis dereindringlichen Tonsprache des Komponisten. Auf dem neuen Doppelalbum hat sich Jóhannsson selbstmit seinem ersten Solo-Album aus dem Jahr 2002 auseinandergesetzt und diesem neue Variationenhinzugefügt. So enthält es eine Klavierversion des Titeltracks von DG-Kollege Vikingur Ólafsson undergreifende Chorstücke. Aber auch andere international bekannte Musiker, die Jóhannssonbewunderte, haben ihre Interpretationen hinzugefügt: u.a. Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ambient-Duo A WingedVictory for a Sullen, Komponist und Produzent Paul Corley. „Seine Musik ist herausragend in ihrerintensiven Klangfülle und lyrischen Dichte. Und sie ist für meine Ohren sehr isländisch“, so Sakamoto.Dass ausgerechnet das Album mit dem Jóhannsson seine Solo-Karriere begann diese nun beschließt,damit hat niemand gerechnet. Doch es zeigt ihn als den sensiblen Klangmaler und poetischenErzähler, der er war. Sein erstes Album hat auch nach 16 Jahren nichts an Kraft und Tiefe verlorenund Jóhannsson wollte das Alte neben dem Neuen erklingen lassen

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Klassik
Le Raccourci is a welcome introduction to the world of modern classical identity Sebastian Gandera. The impressionist landscapes of a sensitive soul self-reflecting, these miniature compositions alternate across a rudimentary set up of piano, field recorder, sampler and four track. Melancholic utterings hastily captured some 100km east of Paris. Classically trained by the same teacher as his parents, Gandera first began recording in the confines of his university dorm room, inspired by a C60 from friend and future collaborator Bernard Odot (A Gethsémani). Humbly existing without sparing a thought to music industry or career, Gandera’s personal effects surfaced via the European and US cassette networks from 1988 to 1994. Impressively accomplished for the DIY scene they orbited, these tapes were issued in scant quantities, rendering his pieces as private secrets shared and duplicated in small concentric circles. Aside from a sole, avowedly traumatic performance, the material was never shared in a live context.

"Hi again! It's been a couple years, but I've put together a new record, this time with my neighbor Stu and a few other friends. Stu's been tuning the piano Linda and I were using for our Lejsovka & Freund and Trouble Books recordings, and I've always enjoyed the test scales and vignettes he would run through checking his work.I floated the idea to collaborate on a sort of 70s/80s ECM kinda vibe, and soon started bringing my laptop and a couple microphones over to his house to collect his improvisations and have him add to pieces I had started. Other friends from the neighborhood dropped by to add parts here and there as well.The recordings were made primarily in the summers of 2016 & 2017 (with a break in-between to mourn the triumph of neo-fascism as well as the passing of beloved pets). Ultimately I tried to follow the feel of those summer nights and the tranquility they offered. Open air or at least open windows, drifting along, you know?"-KF, Spring 2018.Aqueduct Ensemble is a collaboration between Ohio based artist Keith Freund - who has previously released music as part of both Lejsovka & Freund and Trouble Books - and his neighbour Stu, who is a piano tuner and professional pianist. Their debut album together, "Improvisations On An Apricot" is the second release from label Last Resort, and follows G.S Schray's "Gabriel" (2017) - the sleeves for which were both designed by Keith, who does does all the art direction for the label. Beginning life in 2013 as an NTS radio show of the same name, Last Resort is run by Tom Cathcart from his home in London.

Genre:Klassik
Georges Aperghis is probably still not much associated with music for solo piano. Music-theatre - of an uncommonly original kind, with extended vocal techniques much to the fore - has usually been his stamping ground. The concerns that his operas and other music-theatre compositions have embraced - often focusing around a highly individual approach to words and to all aspects of language, developed with great musical sophistication, resulting in what one might call a kind of sound poetry - are not among those immediately linked to the note-against-note preoccupations of which one tends to think where music for the piano is involved.

Beving has been one with the piano from an early age. He was forced to end his musical studies at the conservatory and instead continued at university to get a degree in social sciences. However, his love for his instrument never perished. Where once his goal was to hit as many notes per minute as physically possible, his style of playing has changed over the years, searching for a particular aesthetic essence. His path was illuminated by a piano that Beving inherited from his grandmother when she passed away in 2009. This German instrument insisted on a more gentle touch and a gracious pace, which eventually led Beving to adapt to a more classical vocabulary to tell his story.Joep Beving is a composer and musician, but to the international advertising community he is mostly known as the face of music agency MassiveMusic.

Limited edition of 500 copies only!In the 70′s, the Italian public television RAI used to broadcast disturbing paranoiac dramas, weird documentaries on the bottom of the sea and indigestible so-called “educational” movies. Obviously, all that stuff needed some music. Or “sonorizzazioni” (soundtracks), as they were called. These soundtracks were handled by shady characters, on the border between avant-garde classical, electronic space age and a healthy Italian pop touch. Some names are familiar: Ennio Morricone, for example. Or the mythological Piero Umiliani, too.But the biggest of all was Egisto Macchi. His Voix, a ghostly fresco of lunar vocals and abstract phonemes, is one of the masterpieces of the Italian “library music”.“ESP” is a four-part television series produced by Rai in 1973, directed by Daniele D'Anza, and aired from Sunday, May 27 1973 to Sunday, June 17, 1973 on the National Program. Music by Egisto Macchi.

Claude Debussy (+1918) was one of the most popular and forward thinking composer associated with impressionist music. His innovative and at this time new way to compose music with non traditional scales and chromaticism inspired countless artists from the likes of Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. Remarkable attributes of his music were i.e. the usage of parallel chords, bitonality and many compositions of whole-tone and pentatonic scales and all this surely reminds us on contemporary electronic music where you hardly find limits or boundaries when it comes to traditional, harmonic sounding scale tone music.

Henrik Schwarz and !K7 are proud to announce a collaboration that will bare many different musical fruits. The first of these is a brand new label called Between Buttons, curated by Henrik and focused on acoustic sounds and contemporary compositions. Between Buttons will be in partnership with !K7’s own neo-classical hub 7K!, and will kick off with a new mini LP by Schwarz entitled Works Piano, followed by an EP entitled Aphorisms by Syrian artists Khaled Kurbeh & Raman Khalaf Ensemble. Mixing up old and new technologies, experimental and more classical approaches, the label will see Schwarz forge new paths in his own work, as well as curating material from the peers he has worked with over the last 15 years. Mainly made up of acoustic sounds, piano, string quartets, self-built instruments, percussion and intriguing classicist elements with a modern twist, there will be EPs from piano virtuoso Bugge Wesseltoft, as well as other electronic producers wanting to show themselves in a different, more 'unplugged' light. “In these times of constant turbo mode, likes and thumbs-up, we need to go back to basics,” says Henrik. “We want to move away from the idea that relentless hasty productivity is a must, and instead take time to create space, to let ideas mature and to focus the mind on subtler sounds.” Works Piano will be a four track mini album that uses a Yamaha Disklavier as the starting point and reimagines it, reworks it and alters it with various digital and recording technologies. One track is a created with a reactive algorithm and one is composed purely from altered and processed piano sounds.

Genre:Klassik
Limited edition for Record Store Day 2017!"The Music Of Gurdjieff / De Hartmann" is the result of an extraordinary collaboration between the Greek-Armenian spiritual teacher, G. I. Gurdjieff and Russian composer, Thomas de Hartmann. Gurdjieff traveled for twenty years in the Middle East and Central Asia to discover and develop the teaching which now bears his name. Meditative and mindful, Gurdjieff’s music stems from Eastern melodies and music he heard in remote monasteries.From 1923 to 1929, Thomas de Hartmann worked closely with Gurdjieff at his Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man outside Paris, translating into European notation the music Gurdjieff composed from his travels. The original tapes containing these tracks were recorded in the 1950s under informal circumstances with rudimentary equipment, never intended to be heard by the public. As for the instrumentation, the performance is stripped down to nothing more than a single piano (played by de Hartmann) but lacks absolutely nothing; rather de Hartmann uses the negative space between notes to revel in resonance, in turn capturing remarkable depth and meaning.Following the appearance of a track on LITA’s “I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America 1950-1990”, this material, out of print on vinyl for over three decades, could be considered the seeds that would eventually grow to become the roots of what we now think of as new age music. Jazz pianist Keith Jarrett, who recorded the album G. I. Gurdjieff: Sacred Hymns for the ECM label in 1980, is among the artists to interpret this music since, but the tracks presented in this five LP box-set are the only recordings available of de Hartmann himself playing the music he and Gurdjieff composed. Also included are seven additional recordings, never before available on vinyl, including a talk by de Hartmann about Gurdjieff’s view of the music.This official Record Store Day 2017 release is limited to 1,000 copies only. The first ever vinyl reissue of these recordings, includes 7 bonus pieces never before on vinyl.All audio restored and remastered from the original analog master tapes. New artwork is featured on 5 deluxe Stoughton “tip-on” jackets and slipcase. This release also contains essay, archive photos and download card for MP3 of all 56 pieces.

Release:1997 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Klassik
One of the most striking documents of Italy’s Minimalist movement, Giusto Pio’s "Motore Immobile" is a masterwork with few equivalents. Produced by Franco Battiato in 1979, at the outset of a long and fruitful period of collaboration between the two composers, and issued by the legendary Cramps Records, its triumphs were met by silence, before falling from view.Emerging on vinyl for the first time since its original pressing, "Motore Immobile" now sits within a reappraisal of a large neglected body of efforts made by the Italian avant-garde during the second half of the 1970’s and early 80’s. It is singular, but not alone. It resonates within a collective world of shimmering sound, one familiar to fans of Battiato, Lino Capra Vaccina, Luciano Cilio, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Francesco Messina and Raul Lovisoni.An exercise in elegant restraint - note and resonance held to the most implicit need. Where everything between root and embellishment has been stripped away. A sublime organ drone, against interventions of deceptively simple structural complexity - executed by Piano, Violin, and Voice. A sonic sculpture reaching heights which few have touched. A thing of beauty and an album as perfect as they come. The reemergence of Motore Immobile heralds what is unquestionably one of the most important reissues of the year.

It’s the story of death and reincarnation as a metaphor for our society.

The French-born Edgar Varèse (1883-1965), believed music to be both an art and a science. His pioneering use of electronic instruments like the theremin, along with his theory of “organized sound” has earned him the impressive title of “Father of Electronic Music”. Varèse spent the early twenties as a starving composer in NYC, writing works like the percussionless “Octandre” and “Intégrales”, his first piece to use the term “spatial music”. Upon returning to Paris in 1928, he composed the celebrated “Ionisation”, the first piece ever written for an entirely percussion ensemble (13 percussionist playing 40 instruments). His 1936 piece, “Density 21.5”, written for solo flute for the premiere of George Barrère’s new platinum flute, is one of the great masterpieces for unaccompanied flute. It is also one of the only compositions written by Varèse during this decade. His next major work, “Déserts”, was in fact not written until 1950. It was the first piece ever written for magnetic tape and orchestra and was meant to be the soundtrack to a film which would juxtapose images of actual deserts with images from past wars (the great ‘deserts’ of civilization).

Edgard Varèse belongs to the generation of Bela Bartok, Igor Stravinsky, and Anton Webern. Each of these composers produced a music of extreme individuality, like nothing of his contemporaries, and a radical break with that of the previous century. They may be said to have carried music to the limits of atomization, where one or another of its different elements seem to predominate.

Flüssig, hypnotisch und virtuos: Der ukrainische Pianist vertont das Thema Wasser.Anknüpfend an das 2013 erschienene Album "Corollaries" und die 2014 veröffentlichte EP "Evertina", verbindet auch "Rivers And Streams" die fließende Handschrift Melnyks mit organischer Vitalität, die als gleichermaßen nuanciert durchdacht gelten darf. Wie der Titel schon andeutet und der Künstler auch selbst herausstreicht, ist das Album den Flüssen und den Strömungen dieser Welt gewidmet - in Anerkennung ihrer Schönheit. Für den ukrainischen Pianisten ist Wasser "das magischste und mysteriöseste von allen Dingen, die wir kennen". Spannend: Das Thema der Veröffentlichung korrespondiert mit dessen Aufnahmetechnik. Melnyk ist bekannt für seine einzigartige "Continuous Music"-Spielweise, die zurecht häufig mit Wasser verglichen wird. Auf "Rivers And Streams" konzentriert sich Melnyk komplett auf seine tiefe Verbindung mit dem Element, bis zu dem Punkt, an dem die Musik amorph und sich ständig verändernd selbst geradezu "flüssig" wird. Von dahintröpfelnden Bächen über sich windende Flusstäler erreicht das Album seinen Höhepunkt in dem majestätischen, 20-minütigen Stück "The Amazon". Jamie Perera an der Akustik- und elektrischen Gitarre und die koreanische Flötenspielerin Hyelim Kim steuern jeweils einen Gastauftritt bei.

Genre:Klassik
PIANO INTERRUPTEDs debut album "TWO BY FOUR" ist eine Art musikalische Zusammenfassung der Entwicklung dieses Projektes der letzten drei Jahre.Was als reines Studioprojekt begann, basierend auf Franz Kirmanns Computermanipulationen der Klavierkompositionen von Tom Hodge, ist nun eine ausgewachsene Liveband mit Greg Hall am Cello und Eric Young als Perkussionist.Einige Tracks des Albums sind bereits in verschiedenen Versionen auf früheren EPs erschienen, passend zur Philosophie der Band dem Versuch der Erforschung, Veränderung, Wiederverwertung und Neuerschaffung nachzugehen.Das Album dokumentiert diese Reise und die Entwicklung der Musik über die Jahre. Dabei repräsentieren "Etude" und "London Waltz" eher die frühen Jahre von Piano Interrupted.Aufgenommen als ein Duo sind sie eine Mischung aus subtilen elektronischen Elementen, schiefen Rhythmen und ungewöhnlichen Zeitsignaturen.Die Melodien sind zweifelsohne eher kühl und halten sich gegenüber den elektronischen Arrangements im Hintergrund.Die weiteren Stücke sind als Quartett eingespielt und spiegeln die progressive Veränderung der Kompositionen durch Liveauftritte und Studioexperimente wieder.Drei der Tracks - Hedi, Hobi und Bulbus - zeichnen sich durch einen markanten tunesischen Klang aus.Piano Interrupted wurden gebeten, einen Soundtrack zu 'Papa Hedi', einem sehr persönlichen Dokumentarfilm über das Leben und Wirken des tunesischen 'Frank Sinatra' Hedi Jauni, zu schreiben.Dafür bekamen Piano Interrupted Zugang zu Hedi Jounis Originalaufnahmen. Samples seiner Werke wurden als Grundlage für die Kompositionen von Tom und Franz verwendet.Angesichts des filmischen Klaviers, der versonnenen Klanglandschaften und der zerbrechlichen und gebrochenen Melodien, die mit komplexen Rhythmusstrukturen zusammenprallen, ist es schwer den Musikstil von Piano Interrupted einzuordnen.Es gibt Anflüge von Minimalismus, Filmsoundtracks und filmischen Klanglandschaften, Glitch und Ambient, Post-Rock, neoklassischem Klavier und Jazz.Das Album, bislang nur in einer verkürzten Fassung als Kleinserie erhältlich, wird im April 2013 auf dem deutschen Experimentalmusiklabel Denovali erscheinen.Im Gegensatz zur früheren Kurzfassung auf dem Days Of Being Wild Label, enthält dieses Release insgesamt sechs Bonustracks: zwei weitere Stücke, "Occasional Blues" und "Nocturne", in der Frühzeit des Projektes als Duo aufgenommen und das bislang fehlende Stück von den Papa Hedi Sessions, "Foug".Schliesslich sind, als Zusammenfassung ihrer bisherigen Reise Liveversionen von "Etude", "London Waltz" und "Foug" enthalten, die bei ihrem Konzert im Radialsystem V Berlin im Rahmen der UM:LAUT Konzertreihe aufgenommen wurden.

A composer, a theorist, and an innovator, Harry Partchstands out among so many other American classical artistsas one of the most eccentric. He notably rejected thetradition of composers like Beethoven and Bach for a lack oftheatricality and drama, and took his greatest inspirationsfrom Eastern Noh theater, frequently incorporating speechand dance into his pieces, as well as requiring participantsto perform multiple parts. His theories reflected thisdismissal, which sought to return musical tradition to thoseof the pre-Classical era, with a heavy focus on microtonality,and octave intervals beyond what was traditionally utilized.Many of the pieces he composed would prominently featureinstruments of his own invention, including heavily modifiedstring instruments, mallet instruments, and pipe organs.Over the course of his life, Partch released a number ofrecords, soundtracked numerous films by MadelineTourtelot, and wrote the highly influential text Genesis Of AMusic, which would introduce his theories to acontemporary audience, and inspire fellow avant-gardecomposers as Lou Harrison, Ben Johnston, James Tenney,and even the famed experimental collective The Residents.One of his most famed works was the stage play DelusionOf The Fury, a piece of performance art based upon theJapanese Noh drama Atsumori, while also taking cues fromEthiopian folk tales, Shakespearean tragedy, and ancientGreek traditions. Delusion Of The Fury is looked backupon by critics and historians as one of Partch's seminalworks, making heavy use of his signature micro-tonalcompositional style, as well as many of his own inventedinstruments. It is considered his confrontation with his ownanger towards a world that frequently rejected him, anddealt him hardship. The play first premiered at the UCLAPlayhouse in 1969, whereupon it was recorded by ColumbiaRecords, and presented in a double LP format.

In den letzten Jahren hat Orchestermusik auch außerhalb der Klassik und dessen Establishment anBedeutung gewonnen. Neil Leiter und Margaret Hermant, die beiden Masterminds des belgischen EnsemblesEcho Collective, haben zu dieser Entwicklung wesentlich beigetragen. Das Brüsseler Künstlerkollektiv ausklassisch ausgebildeten Musikern hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Hörer unterschiedlicher Musikgenreszusammenzubringen. Unter anderem durch Kollaborationen mit Stars Of The Lid, A Winged Victory For TheSullen oder Jóhann Jóhannsson. Für das neue Album hat sich die Formation "Amnesiac" vorgeknöpft, denfünften Langspieler von Radiohead aus dem Jahr 2001, und einer Neuinterpretation unterzogen. Spannend:Neil Leiter (Violine) hatte vor den Aufnahmen noch nie Radiohead gehört! Die Interpretation des Ensembleskommt allerdings ohne Stimme aus und bleibt ein instrumentaler Hörgenuss. "Thom Yorke sei jedoch herzlicheingeladen mitzumachen", äußerte sich Leiter. Vielleicht findet das Ganze also noch eine Fortsetzung. Mehrvon Echo Collective kommt mit Sicherheit ziemlich bald in die Läden, denn das Signing beim BerlinerNeoklassik-Label 7K! war mit der Aufgabe verbunden, zusätzlich ein Album mit eigenen Kompositioneneinzuspielen.

Genre:Pop, Klassik
Erasure have announced a collaboration with Echo Collective, the Brussels based collective of post-classical musicians best known for their ongoing collaborative work with A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Johann Johannsson, Dustin O'Halloran and Stars of the Lid.The collaboration sees the entirety of Erasure's latest album, World Be Gone, given a post-classical rework. World Beyond was recorded over ten days by Andy Bell and seven performers from the Echo Collective: Margaret Hermant (violin, harp), Neil Leiter (viola), Thomas Engelen (cello), Jaroslaw Mroz (double bass), Gary De Cart (piano) and Antoine Dandoy (vibraphone, glockenspiel).The album was produced by Echo Collective, mixed by Gareth Jones and arranged by the Echo Collective's Gary De Cart, Margaret Hermant and Neil Leiter. Neil Leiter from the Echo Collective explains, "The process of this project was really deconstruction and re-purposing. We started by listening to each track layer by layer, and then, using the layers that inspired us or we found essential, we reconstructed the tracks instrumentally. Each of the instruments in the band setup were chosen for their inherent capacities and roles. Often choosing which layer to put with each instrument was a question of matching roles and colours. By stripping so much away, we were able to find a new space for Andy to fill. The text of the songs became much more important in the overall construction of the songs, and Andy was free to explore more dynamics and vocal range."The tracks featured on World Beyond show award-winning songwriters Vince Clarke and Andy Bell in a more reflective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination. This new collaboration gives a new dimension to the tracks - including fan-favourites 'Still It's Not Over', which tackles the LGBT rights movement post-Stonewall, and 'Lousy Some Of Nothing', a ballad for our post-truth age - but the band's optimism about the future remains clear and bright. Andy Bell explains: "...the reinterpretations have brought such enormous context to the songs, it has created a new place for them."The original idea for the album developed from Vince Clarke, who initially suggested that a single from World Be Gone could be given an orchestral reinterpretation, but as the idea expanded and took shape, he spoke at length to the Echo Collective ahead of the recording. "It was great to talk through ideas with Echo Collective and then see how their arrangements took shape. The collaboration has given elements of the album a whole new feel and Andy's vocals remain as powerful and uplifting as ever" says Clarke.The collaboration is a natural progression from 1987's The Two Ring Circus, a companion EP for the band's second album, The Circus, which included several orchestral interpretations.

As a truly indispensable bookend to any listeners with the slightest interest in experimental music, French culture or the foundations of mechanical songwriting this inaugural release by these Parisian musical revolutionaries not only predicts the future sound of modern composition by almost 60 years but detangles the deepest roots of European popular culture celebrating an important historical family unison in the process. Combining the infant steps of Magma, the sonic blueprint of 1970’s TV theme Picture Box and the sculptural creations of Polly Maggoo this important and groundbreaking 3 track 7” EP takes us back to the very first aural glimpse of the future of pregressive Europe at the hands of physical sound sculptures glaring in the face of premature technology.This EP and its varied three-pronged assault is the first step in the legacy of the Lasry Baschet unison uniting the husband and wife team of Jacques and Yvonne Lasry plus their son Teddy (who would later create Magma with Christian Vander) and hard material sculptors François and Bernard Baschet (who would later work with William Klein). It was this creative unison between visual art and experimental music, witnessing the Lasry family exchange their orthodox music skills in favour of crystal rods, balloons, wet bows and metal sheets, that would potentially change the course of European music which was already on the extreme verge of electrocution with the rise of tape music and embryonic synthesised instrumentation.Promoting the phrase Instruments Non-électroniques (as celebrated on the sleeve of the Cacophonic full-length release 11CACKLP) the Lasry-Baschet collective’s humanistic music (an attitude upheld by composers like Michel Magne) would later spark the imagination of Jean Cocteau leading to installations at the Museum Of Modern Art leading to a huge shift in the way people approached experimental melodic music alongside the efforts of Harry Partch and other music machine makers. The appropriation of their music in art, theatre, ballet, film and television came closest to UK shores when their composition Manège was used as the long running theme for the children’s TV compendium Picture Box spanning three decades (rivalling both The Moomins and The Booktower for the most indelible and nostalgic spooky theme tunes in the history of British TV) by which time Teddy Lasry had independently become one of France’s most creative instrumental composers of all time.

Georges Aperghis is probably still not much associated with music for solo piano. Music-theatre - of an uncommonly original kind, with extended vocal techniques much to the fore - has usually been his stamping ground. The concerns that his operas and other music-theatre compositions have embraced - often focusing around a highly individual approach to words and to all aspects of language, developed with great musical sophistication, resulting in what one might call a kind of sound poetry - are not among those immediately linked to the note-against-note preoccupations of which one tends to think where music for the piano is involved.
