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.

Celibidache never conducted opera (perhaps a single Carmen, or maybe an act of Don Giovanni…) because, he said, opera performance is subject to too many approximations. Celibidache was the great conductor of Symphonies and Concertos and here, in this recital, his performance is the best. Featuring a sublime rendition of Shubert's "Unfinished", this is a magical recording with great sound.

Verwundete Schönheit offenbart sich im von elektronischen Störungen undVerzerrungen überwölkten Gesang von Ian William Craig. Kosmische Dronesund zerebrales Pochen werden zu astraler Strahlenmusik verwoben.Gregorianische Choräle schrauben sich in halluzinogene Höhen, um danachwieder an Ambientufern zu versprudeln. So erwächst ein fragiler Chor ausAbstraktion und intimer Sinnlichkeit, der sich in dunklen Momenten zuunterbewusster Monstrosität auswächst. Erstaunlich souverän wechselt Craig,der eigentlich Gesang studiert hat, wieder zu Liebesliedern, die sanft undausgezehrt zu uns lispeln.

93,49 €* 109,99 € -15%
Release:2017 / US – Original
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. The final side features custom etching.

For his latest project, drummer Julian Sartorius hiked for ten days through Switzerland. In his luggage: two drumsticks and a curiosity about the sounds they might produce along the way. Out of the beats collected en route he made the album «Hidden Tracks: Basel – Genève», an experimental sound collage that maps Switzerland far from the usual stereotypes. In the distribution of the record Sartorius is also charting new territory: It will not only be sold as a vinyl record but also as a hiking map with a download code.For his last major solo project – «Beat Diary» (2012 / Everest Records) – Julian Sartorius left the studio; each day for one year he played a track in his immediate surroundings. For the album «Hidden Tracks: Basel – Genève» Sartorius progresses a thousand steps further: In October 2016 he donned his backpack and hiked for ten days from Basel to Geneva via the Jura Ridgeway Trail (270 kilometres). For sound sources he used what he found en route: tree trunks, hiker turnstiles, empty silos, dry corn stalks – each object evoking its own voice. As an explorer of the quotidian, Sartorius evoked with his drumsticks a universe of sound that’s hidden to the regular hiker. With a backpack full of recorded rhythmic patterns and sound sources Julian Sartorius returned to the studio to create the album «Hidden Tracks: Basel – Genève». Sartorius edited the different audio files, layering and combining them together. The result is an experimental sound collage in which every track represents one day of hiking and where the familiar meets the previously unheard.The album «Hidden Tracks: Basel – Genève» will be released in June 2017 by Bernese label Everest Records. It will be available in two formats – as a hiking map with a download code and as a regular 12” vinyl. The map, designed by Silvio Brügger, charts and retraces the paths that Sartorius walked, inviting people to follow in the footsteps of the artist. In addition, one track of the album will be released as an artwork postcard that can be played as a vinyl on a record deck. The album release tour will see Sartorius guide an audience along a short hike circuit during which Sartorius will improvise with objects he finds along the way. The audience participants will follow while listening using headphones that receive audio from a microphone Sartorius trains on the objects. These hikes will start and end at selected music venues.

Gazebo Compositions
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ekster)
18,99 €* 19,99 € -5%
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Han Swolfs turns our senses to more classic and jazz infused pieces, improvised almost entirely on winged piano. “Gazebo Compositions” can be considered a resting point after Han’s more energetic electronic releases and grasps back to his roots. Inspired by a video-work by Jef Cornelis, Han translates moods and impressions of memories of his youth and his relation to the artist using a technique similar to Ecriture Automatique. Each note sprouts inspiration for the next one and composes the full story with uppers and downers. Belgian duality in it’s bloom for this summer release.Written and performed by Hantrax. Mastered at Dubplas & Mastering Berlin. Pressed on (180g) 12inch black vinyl with a video still cover taken from “De Koninklijke serres van Laken 1877-1902” made by Jef Cornelis in 1974. Packed in a silk-screened transparant over-sleeve.

Genre:Electronic / Dance, Klassik
Parisian DJ and producer Kiddy Smile embodies the lifeblood of house music past and present. His music flashes with nostalgia for those mid-80s New York basements where house music first came alive. ‘Teardrops In The Box’ pulses with the intoxicating energy of a Ball in Kiddy’s native Paris, with its deep-rooted traditions but its intensely forward-focussing culture.Following up on his fearsome debut ‘Let A B!tch Know’ on Defected, Kiddy Smile has deployed the well-established remixing capabilities of Mystic Bill, a house champion from the underground schools of Detroit and Chicago. His ‘Jersey Dub’ eases back on the tempo for a syncopated strut to The Garden State, while the ‘Vocal Mix’ is a bulkier prospect, emphasising Kiddy’s growling vocal with some serious attitude bass. Finally, his vinyl-exclusive ‘Acid Mix’ is specifically designed for getting twisted on dark, underground floors. Cowbell and raw synths give ‘Teardrops In The Box’ unadulterated dancefloor credentials but this is more than a club record; the layers to this track run deep.

“(...)The compositions of this record represent attempts at new means of musical expression. Some utilize conventional musical instruments and sounds in startlingly new ways, giving an impression of an actual “new” sound being created; some use instruments new to music (electrical, mechanical and natural) adding to the composers’ palette of timbres and tonalities. (...)This record is meant as a tool for those using new sounds and techniques in composing. There are basic sounds (some of which are hard to come by) and basic sound patterns, together with examples of how these sounds and patterns may be utilized (...)”Sounds of New Music is a legendary collection of 18 compositions from the 1920s to the mid-1950s representing attempts at a “new means of musical expression.” Composers include Edgard Varèse, Henry Cowell, and John Cage, whose “Dance” is played on a transformed Steinway piano that gives the music an almost primitive quality.

Deutsche Grammophon presents the album “Room 29”, a unique collaboration between Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzales.Standing at the west end of Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard, the Chateau Marmont hotel has seen many a famous and infamous guest pass through its doors since it opened in 1929. A 2012 stay in one of its second-floor rooms inspired British lyricist and singer Jarvis Cocker to look into its history and led to this collaborative project with multi-faceted Canadian pianist and composer Chilly Gonzales. “Room 29” is a 21st-century song cycle. Gonzales’ score and Cocker’s lyrics conjure up the lives of some of “Room 29’s” previous occupants, as well as shining a light on the glittering fantasy and often bleak reality of Hollywood.“Room 29” was recorded in Paris following its “work-in-progress” premiere at Hamburg’s Kampnagel in January last year.

This stunning 20th-century piano music was inspired by national traditions but uses the language and form of Western music. It compiles music by AMIRAM RIGAI, MANOLIS KALOMIRI, PAUL BEN-HAIM, ILHAN MIMAROGLU, ANDRE AMINE HOSSEIN and ANIS FULEIHAN."In the countries of the Near East, as in any other country where occidental culture is adoptive, musical composition modeled after its occidental counterpart came into being out of an intellectual necessity: that of nding a substitute for a traditional music which, under the dictate of its very essence, resisted evolution and was consequently in decay.It was logical, as far as both the ideals and the basic methods of this process of substitution were concerned, that the fashioning be done after the examples of the national schools of the late nineteenth-century Europe. The rst stream of the westernized near eastern music was therefore romantic (or post-romantic, or impressionist) in its overall gesture. Regardless of the composition date of each individual opus, all of the works recorded here fall into this category: music inspired by national traditions (musical, or other), displaying at least that intangible called “national character” whenever a national element is not evident, but employing a language and a medium belonging to western music (...)"

JOHN CAGE (1912-1992) is one of the most important composers in modern music: with more than 250 compositions, many of which are considered key works of New Music, and theoretical essays on composition he significantly changed the way we think about and perceive music today. But CAGE not only left a major impact in the academic world, he is also cited as an important inspiration by a wide range of diverse musicians from a younger generation, be it electronic producers, experimentalists or noise artists. His "Song Books", published 1970 in threevolumes, is a collection of open works that contains not only songs but a strange hybrid collection of compositions, graphic scores, meditation rules, experimental settings, absurd musical instructions, performance settings, musical references, and Fluxus-inspired actions such as eating fruits or drinking cognac (CAGE loved whiskey and cognac) ...;

20,69 €* 22,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / EU – Original
The product of three years of work, The weathered stone marks Benedict Schlepper-Connolly out as a voice of compelling individuality. Inspired by the secret histories of landscapes, old maps and memory, this is music that possesses the ecstatic, unforced beauty of the natural world. Across only four tracks, the Dublin composer lays out a many-hued musical statement that is at once minimal and teeming with matter. The monumental opening track (The weathered stone) and the explosive string quartet that follows (A view from above) both deal in large, distinct, swathes of music in which a pattern warps elegantly over time. Schlepper-Connolly was inspired here by the corrosion and erosion of building materials and landscapes. He writes: “Landscapes erode, reshape and accumulate; my use of musical material here behaves in a similar way, with musical states exposed to time and altered, often subtly, sometimes more violently.” The song, Beekeepers, which Schlepper-Connolly sings himself, forms the record’s intimate core. A song of memory, reflection and renewal, Beekeepers reveals new, expansive possibilities latent within Schlepper-Connolly’s musical language. These are further explored in the harmonically lush closing track, Field, which is again inspired by the action of time on the land. “In Field,” the composer writes, “musical material is much like earthly material: it retains many of its features over time, but its surface is continually transformed.” Produced by the composer along with Garrett Sholdice, and mastered in Munich by the legendary Christoph Stickel (Ecm, Deutsche Grammophon, Sony Classical), The weathered stone features performances of extraordinary grace and virtuosity, with the Robinson Panoramic Quartet (Irl), and pianist Saskia Lankhoorn (Nl), and reedman Seán Mac Erlaine (irl), joining Schlepper-Connolly to bring his vivid music to life. Benedict Schlepper-Connolly is a composer and producer from Dublin. As a composer, he moves between various musical forms, including chamber music, choral writing, orchestral work, arrangement, songwriting, field recording and music for dance and film. Benedict’s compositions frequently seek out an ecstatic quality, with a reduced palette of materials, rich tonal harmonies and rhythmic intricacy. Born in Ireland to an Irish father and German mother, Benedict studied composition with Donnacha Dennehy, Yannis Kyriakides and Peter Adriaansz at both Trinity College, Dublin, and at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague. Along with Garrett Sholdice, Benedict runs Ergodos, a record label and production company founded in 2006.

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance, Klassik
Rife with dichotomy “Barely Breathing” is an album of strong melodies and delicate electronic drums that works far beyond the genres often-narrow stylistic range. Tom’s skillful production techniques across the 8 tracks and use of guest vocals on “Calling You” create welcoming structures that allow the whole albums lighter touches to flourish. Any hint of esoteric is quickly hushed with one of the albums standout cuts “Solstice” humming with quintessential relaxation and reflection. Unsurprising really, coming from a classical trained musician that has been exploring his craft way beyond just the musical platform, one of audio, digital art and moving image. All-powerful and immersive experiences that continue to transcend into his recorded music. Subtle, soulful tones still clutching the songwriting process give each track way too much emotion to ignore; and importantly gives the label an early and memorable moment of levity – absorbing all of the positive qualities from their fellow contemporaries; a sure hint that Yen is set to provide much more than just a passive listening experience. The inaugural full-length release has laid down the language and intentions; crafted by a sound anchored with hugging synths, piano keys, and a true sense of narrative build...accumulating in the rising, synthetic “Constitution Hill”, a clear standout, encompassing true patience and escapism.

Le Groupe de Recherches Musicales (The Group of Musical Research) of the O.R.T.F. (Office of the French Radio-Television) is known in the world principally as the promoter of an original technique of realization as well as reflection : Musique concrète. For more than fifteen years, the Groupe de Recherches Musicales has thus founded its experience, its methods of research and particular techniques upon a confrontation between the musical act, reflection upon its elements, experimentation on sound sources, and the electroacoustical means. Grouped around Pierre Schaeffer and Francois Bayle, composers and researchers try to give new direction to musical activity through the conjugated action of a program of Fundamental Research on the languages of music (concrete, electronic, but also instrumental and oriental) and a program of Expression, resulting in original compositions as well as essays for the ballet, theater, cinema, or television (...) In this LP you can find some great examples of the incredible production of many of the most celebrated composers of the ‘movement’: Boulez, Stockhausen, Parmegiani among others.

Genre:Electronic / Dance, Klassik
U has always displayed an unironic conformity to his own absolutely genuine / occasionally challenging ideal as to what a release should entail. After a series of predominantly, and (in the most loving sense) maybe begrudgingly, dance floor oriented EPs, ‘Vienna Orchestra’ is a long overdue insight into his core fascination as a musician; making complex and intriguing experimental pieces that belie the humble mode of their creation - recording from vinyl records and manipulating the audio on old school samplers. This LP is an insight into scores of hours of twiddling with loops and sequences to create music far removed from its source material (dusty classical records acquired on a trip to Vienna). This is a dense, blunted world, which holds the sound of a musician indulging their own ear’s obsessions and insatiable curiosity. The record’s opening is reminiscent of Walter Schumann’s ‘Night of the Hunter’ soundtrack in its deeply unsettling, creeping feel. The droning high strings in the background prick your ears while, in the foreground, oddly syncopated staccato stabs provide the loping, lurching feel. You could be forgiven for momentarily comparing this to some kind of oddball, Deep Puddle Dynamics-esque excursion… but then the fun begins. Throughout the record, the most consistently striking element is U’s masterful ability to, with the use of relatively simple EQs, filters and basic effects, turn familiar and fairly orthodox sounds into futuristic and daring electronic experimentalism. Forceful strings become ethereal and strange in their timbre, long, drawn-out notes are oscillated to create warped riffs or motifs and the imperfections of the physical format are treated as an essential aspect of the soundscapes he creates (more on this later). His isolation of contemporary rhythms in the source material displays an impeccable musical ear. Moments of the album sound like beatless grime or techno - not in a “YO kidz, Shakespeare was the original rapper!” kind of way - but in the startling, often illuminating fashion they summon connections between styles of the past and present. It’s also fascinating and joyful to hear, in this context, the early rave producers’ technique of pitching one chord or note across several pads / keys to create increments of the scale that shouldn’t really exist. No doubt this would discombobulate a classical purist to the point of distraction but it is a constant delight to hear this fairly un-musical production technique applied within a tuneful, meticulous and unfamiliar paradigm.

Kuba Kapsa is a Polish pianist and composer. "Vantdraught 4" is written for violin, clarinet/bass clarinet, trombone and piano. The minimalistic style of earlier volumes is preserved although the music is less repetitive and much more intimate. "Vantdraught 4" is certainly linked to classical and minimal music in general but one can find other influences such as jazz and "new music".

Zeitkratzer releasing songs ? Isn't zeitkratzer a contemporary music group ? Or a noise band ? Songs ? These songs actually have been developed over several years and evolved from a fashion show zeitkratzer was making the music for. Marc Weiser a.k.a. rechenzentrum, since then a member of zeitkratzer, sings. Marc has already caused some furore as Mark Markowitch, singing fake songs in fake languages in some hidden Berlin bars. So now all of those together: zeitkratzer's noise, zeitkratzer's unfathomable electro-like sound layers and Mark's voice, flying above, croaking, reciting, disappearing inside the noise, singing the falsetto or just floating on a repetitive prepared piano loop... What a beautiful goodbye to Pop - back to the real song, the real air, with orchestral density and minimalistic sound layers: Songs ! zeitkratzer directed by Reinhold Friedl. Marc Weiser (voice), Burkhard Schlothauer (violin), Anton Lukoszevieze (violoncello), Ulrich Phillipp doublebass), Frank Gratkowski (reeds), Hild Sofie Tafjord (french horn), Hilary Jeffery (trombone), Reinhold Friedl (piano), Christian Lillinger (drums, percussion).

Doppel-LP im dicken Deluxe-Gatefold - 180g Vinyl - mit Downloadcode. THE ALVARET ENSEMBLE ist ein Improvisationskollektiv, das sich um Greg Haines (Klavier), Jan Kleefstra (Stimme, Gedichte), Rome Kleefstra (Gitarre und Effekte) und Sytze Pruiskma (Percussion) rankt.Diese selbstbetitelte Doppel-CD/Doppel-LP ist die erste Veröffentlichung des Ensembles und wurde im August 2011 über drei Nächte hinweg mit Nils Frahm in der Grunewaldkirche in Berlin aufgenommen.In echter Projektmanier wurden weitere Musiker zu den Sessions eingeladen, um ihren Teil beizutragen und die Spontaneität der Aufnahme beizubehalten.Am Ende spielten diese Kollaborateure eine wichtige Rolle bei der Definition des Sounds des Albums.Iden Reinhart spielte - so wie Peter Broderick - die Violine, während Hilary Jeffrey (KILIMANJARO DARKJAZZ ENSEMBLE etc.) die traurigen Töne der Posaune beitrug.Martin Heyne, der eigentlich nur vor Ort war, um bei den Aufnahmen zu helfen, setze sich schließlich an die Kirchenorgel und trug so völlig Neues zum Album bei.Für Fans von SET FIRE TO FLAMES, RACHELS, ARVO PÄRT und dem Katalog von ECM. Greg Haines, der Kern des ALVARET ENSEMBLES, lebt und komponiert in Berlin.Er hat auf verschiedenen Labels veröffentlich, auf fast allen Kontinenten gespielt und unter anderem Musik für das niederländische Nationalballett und die niederländische Sinfonie geschrieben.Die Kleefstra-Brüder sind Mitglieder der niederländischen Impro-Band PIIPTSJILLING und arbeiten mit Musiker wie Celer, Gareth Davis, Peter Broderick, Machinefabriek, Nils Frahm, Greg Haines, Sytze Pruiksma und Anne Chris Bakker.Sytze Pruiksma ist Komponist, Soundkünstler und Ornithologe, der am Konversatorium in Amsterdam als klassischer Percussionist ausgebildet wurde und mit den großen niederländischen Orchestern gearbeitet hat.
