MATTHIAS PINTSCHER - sonic eclipse

MATTHIAS PINTSCHER - sonic eclipse
ID: KAI0013162
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music
Subcollection: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

In the three-part ensemble cycle sonic eclipse (2009-10), another theme of the compositional process is auditory masking as a step-by-step process of concealment. The solo instrument featured in the work’s first part, is the trumpet, with the horn taking up this role in the secont Part. Part three interlinks the two solo instruments, which in turn proceed to integrate themselves fully with the rest of the ensemble. In search of a metaphor for this process, Pintscher hit upon the phenomenon of the eclipse-in which celestial bodies overlap and cast their shadows upon one another at the moment of complete coverage.

From twilight to twilight and from morning to evening is the range spanned by a twilight’s song and the E.E.Cummings poem upon which it is based. Pintscher composes the “in-between”, a
penetration of the poem’s inflection and structure; the pictorial language is re-sketched via the creation of an “integral of the simulated spatiality”. An instrumental ensemble placed at a considerable distance to one another begins with nearly inaudible whispering and proceeds to conjure up an incipient sonic space consisting of heterogeneous events: rasping, floating; pulsations, plosives, breathing. At its centre, the bass flute’s melodious opening gesture of a prepares the register of the soprano.

For Matthias Pintscher, the shir ha shirim (song of songs) is “a supremely condensed compendium of nearly boundless emotional states. All its sections give the impression of having neither beginning, nor end, nor middle, simply being modes of expression that circle one another.” It is from the fifth song that the Pintscher took the text for his a cappella piece. The words “she-cholat ahavah ani” translate as “how lovesick am I”, and for the composer this is a core sentence which sums up the topic of the love song. Not only in terms of content, but also structurally, the famous Hebrew text opens up very special perspectives. “In Hebrew, words are like islands or sources of energy, since everything in the language is derived from short root words. For a musician or a composer, this represents the opportunity to delve deep into the words’ connotations, since one can oneself shape the flow, the route between the individual words, each one of which is like an object.”

Michael Nyman in Concert (1981,remastered)

Michael Nyman in Concert (1981,remastered)

Type: CD
Subcollection: Ensemble

The first Michael Nyman Band Album originally released in 1981
Includes first recording of In Re Don Giovanni

Beautifully packaged in a 6 panel digipack and including two limited edition posters of the the original UK and Japanese LP artwork.

Critically acclaimed as Nyman’s groundbreaking record that combined minimalist, experimentalist music and jazz improvisation for the first time, this album has only ever been available on the rarest of long-since deleted vinyl.

Most of the music on Michael Nyman was material from the early films by Peter Greenaway such as "Bird Anthem" (Act Of God) and "Bird List Song" (The Falls). The album also includes his first concert work for the band, "In Re Don Giovanni" which was released as a single on Les Disques du Crepuscule (home of Cabaret Voltaire, Durutti Column and Josef K amongst others) under the title Mozart. The most groundbreaking track on Michael Nyman, however, is "Waltz in F", a piece Nyman wrote for art students whilst teaching at Trent Polytechnic in 1977, Nyman subsequently commandeering two modern jazz improvisers, Evan Parker and Peter Brotzman, to "destroy" this piece. Ultimately, Parker and Brotzman ended up playing over and around ten separate tracks whilst Nyman and Cunningham mixed in their Waltz.

International Contemporary Ensemble: Daniel Lippel, solo guitar
Jayce Ogren . Matthew Ward

Includes booklet with texts by Daniel Lippel and Jacob Greenberg

This CD presents music for various ensemble configurations and electronics by British-Japanese composer Dai Fujikura, one of the most strikingly original composers of our day, masterfully performed by the New York-based International Contemporary Ensemble featuring guitarist Daniel Lippel.

"I think of Dai as a model of an “international” composer - someone who transcends regional styles and aesthetic schools in favor of his or her individual voice. He is able to deftly allude to and absorb music of different styles without being in the least bit derivative." Daniel Lippel, guitarist, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE)
