HenrikSchwarz - Henrik Schwarz Alma Quartet - CCMYK - 192k


HenrikSchwarz Henrik Schwarz  Alma Quartet - CCMYK - 192k song img

new album by Henrik Schwarz together with Amsterdam high end string quartet Alma Quartet. The story of CCMYK is the story of chance, communication and control. In 2013, after performing with the Dutch Chamber Orchestra in Amsterdam, Henrik was approached by Marc Daniel of the Alma String Quartet. In 2015, Henrik invited the four players to his studio in Berlin, where they began a series of improvisations. Henrik would suggest a musical phrase, and one of the Alma Quartet would play in response, with another then taking up the idea: highly trained classical musicians recording like a jazz band. Schwarz would record, replay and respond to their classical phrases with his own electronic production. These half hour jams would then be taken home by Henrik. There, he would edit them down, sculpting their form into coherent tracks. During this process he added electronic melodies and beats, even inviting the players back to respond again, thus building and refining these variations on a theme until the songs were fully formed.

Though based on free improvisations, CCMYK is not a record of bumbling jams. Rather, it's a record of startling density, control and emotional complexity. It opens with the ourish of strings: a looped violin, a plucked double bass, interwoven with subtle electronic effects. Throughout the album, piercing melancholy and graceful tension merges with ashes of radiant joy. Dynamic, driving soundscapes like CCMYK3 sound almost ready for the club, while Happy Hipster's Spring-like verve turns into full, dazzling and almost sorrowful Summer, a tonal shift of which any composer would be proud.

This is the sound of open conversation between piercing intellects, taking their individual instruments and musical backgrounds to create a universe of sound. Perhaps this is the meaning of the album title: three primary colours and a key that combine to bring any image imaginable to life. For the live show, Schwarz has even reimagined the building blocks of both a club and an orchestra. Instead of a conventional loudspeaker, he has remade a cello to amplify his electronic effects. In place of a metronome, the group will look to an automated needle on a display, directed by Schwarz, keeping time with the sensitivity and feeling of a conductor.

LEE HYLA: WE SPEAK ETRUSCAN by Speculum Musicae


LEE HYLA: WE SPEAK ETRUSCAN by Speculum Musicae song img

Lee Hyla's (b 1952) music is profoundly individual. Its extremes of expression are all unmistakable facets of one wide-ranging musical personality. Hyla has fashioned a personal language capable of both the simple, exquisitely polished opening of the String Quartet No. 3 and the raw Jerry Lee Lewis-like riffs in the Piano Concerto No. 2. This Jekyll-and-Hyde nature is to some extent the natural consequence of a musical background informed equally by classical music, improvisation, and rock-and-roll.

What he brings from rock is its energy, and, on occasion, its brute power and rhythmic sensibilities, so different from those of jazz and classical music. From his classical training he brings a gift for musical organization and, unapologetically, a modernist aesthetic; from jazz, a melodic and gestural language that he separates from its traditional harmonic underpinnings. All of this makes for very exciting listening indeed: Hyla's music is always direct, its drama visceral, its organic unity palpable.

Metasomatic by Mathew Arrellin


Metasomatic by Mathew Arrellin song img

To understand what the Metasomatic cycle means to me, Meta- can be defined as both transcendental, as in metaphysical, and as change, as in metamorphosis; and -somatic refers to the body. This idea was initially born from the concept of a trill, or more simply put, an alternationa change from one thing to another. The trill functions on both the local and global levels within each piece as an alternation between states, both abstractly and expressively: up and down, high and low, quiet and loud, stasis and activity, stability and instability, etc. An important aspect of the cycle is that it is modular. On the CD, they are programmed in such a way so as to hear the structural and timbral contrasts, as well as the symmetrical design of the cyclethat is, the relationship of solo to quartet between Bifurcations and Coalescences and between Vapors and Portals. Depending on the order, different sets of associations can be made between each work and across the whole cycle.

Each piece in the cycle features a different kind of alternation as the main protagonist of the musical fabric, with hints provided in the titles. This is by no means an exhaustive description of the different alternations throughout each work, but to provide a brief overview, Bifurcations refers to the contrapuntal alternations... more
