More Info

Fast 80 Minuten Minimalismus pur des Amerikaners (*1933), mit spezieller Kompositionstechnik aufgenommene verschiedene Flten ergeben harmonic clusters to invoke new phenomena, z.B. neuartige Akkorde.

Niblock takes the building blocks of music and stacks them in inimitable formations. In Four Full Flutes, adjacent tones beat violently against one another while clouds of harmonics hover above the wavering drone. When the piece ends, it takes the listener a few moments to recover. This physiological experience, when the ossicles slow their vibrating and the
membrane hairs come to a standstill, is probably the only aspect of the music not regulated by the score. The four pieces on this 80 minute CD are for multiple tracks of alto flutes, flutes, flutes and alto flutes, and bass flutes, performed by Petr Kotik, Susan Stenger, and Eberhard Blum. [press-release]
