More Info

Die seit 1993 bestehenden REYNOLS haben sich gerade (Anfang 2004) aufgelst! Auf dieser ungewhnlichen Scheibe beweisen sie noch einmal ihre bizarre Kreativitt: Es erklingen verschiedene Varianten von pfeifenden Wasserkesseln....

A singularly brilliant work for baritone, tenor, contralto & soprano whistling kettles from this unpredictable Argentinian collective Reynols seems to be more active than ever. Responsible for a bunch of highly conceptual projects such as the 10.000-chicken Symphony, BlanTapes, Fire Music, Reynols Plays the Eiffel Tower, etc. this sound-art piece redefines a traditional format in classical music Їthe quartetЇ in order to expand its boundaries and possibilities. Through the three movements of this composition (Andante Mogal, Moderato uno Surido Fermo and Allegro Repuliom Lanidelo), the sound of the four whistling kettles create deep textures, ranging from minimal static drones to complex pitch counterpoints. If the String Quartet has, for centuries, been a must for composers, what can we expect from the coming XXI century quartets? Maybe this release starts eying in key an answer [from the press release]
