PIECES FOR PERCUSSION


The record contains six compositions for two and four players and three solo improvisations.
All these pieces explore very limited material. The instrumental frame is narrowed down to one
instrument or type of instruments. In each of the pieces for two and four players, all parts are
constructed from the same material. The three solo improvisations have strong conceptual
limitations: On two of them a single cymbal is played with extremely close microphones, allowing
for details to come to the surface that one normally surpasses.
The last piece on the record has been recorded with the window open on one of the first warm
days in spring, percussion sounds are occasionally added to the ephemeral sounds coming in
through the window.
