Le Souffle Du Temps II - Reflexion

Label: ezz-thetics

Format: CD

Genre: Compositional

In stock

Through preparations, computers, contact microphones, gongs, feedback and other tools, Swiss pianist, composer & improviser Judith Wegmann's work transform the sound of the piano into an otherworldly instrument, set against more traditional acoustic pieces of a reflective nature, together creating a conceptual set of ten pieces in a uniquely flexible approach.

**In process of stocking** "As with Le Souffle Du Temps, the haunting, evocative soundworld of the "Reflections" reminds me a little of George Crumb's Makrokosmos. Wegmann's gentle, understated art nudges her sounds into patterns that compel attention. She described Le Souffle Du Temps II as ten "conceptual" pieces, but not in the sense of "conceptual art": "I mean having a structure or outline in your head," she explains. "As I layer the different sounds, I contemplate the whole, hearing how it will sound. It is a free approach, but when I step on stage, I feel the space, the audience, the atmosphere and then I hear the entire piece when I sit down at the piano - just as I do with improvisations".- Andy Hamilton
