Zeitkratzer - The Shape Of Jazz To Come

Zeitkratzer - The Shape Of Jazz To Come

RELEASE DATE June 19, 2020 zeitkratzer goes Jazz: zeitkratzer is as always good for a surprise and finally goes Jazz! Looking at the line-up of the “modern composition supergroup” (The Wire) it seems astonishing that it took so long.  Saxophonists Frank Gratkowski and Hayden Chisholm both won independently the German Radio SWR Jazz award; the French horn virtuoso Hild Sofie Tafjord grew up with Jazz, as her father and uncle are members of the famous Norwegian jazz group Brazz Brothers; Hilary Jeffery toured with numerous jazz musicians, as did the drummer Maurice de Martin who spent his early years in the New York downtown scene; Reinhold Friedl studied piano with Alexander von Schlippenbach, and Ulrich Phillipp is a known improviser who toured with Charles Gayle… and zeitkratzer is joined by a second bass player: Martin Heinze, member of  the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The Shape of Jazz to Come by zeitkratzer & Mariam WallentinThe idea for THE SHAPE OF JAZZ TO COME arose wh...

Kontynuacja interpretacji utworów z 2 pierwszych płyt Kraftwerk. 2nd volume of „modern composition supergroup“ (The Wire) ZEITKRATZER's re-interpretations of early compositions by electronic pioneers KRAFTWERK. In more than two decades ZEITKRATZER has created an astonishing broad catalogue from the obligatory (20th century avant-garde composers like CAGE or STOCKHAUSEN) to the unexpected (electronic artists such as CARSTEN NICOLAI, TERRE THAEMLITZ or underground experimentalists like THROBBING GRISTLE and KEIJI HAINO) – but hardly anyone was prepared for the ensemble’s choice of early KRAFTWERK pieces! When volume 1 was released in 2017, ZEITKRATZER founder and director REINHOLD FRIEDL announced that there'll be a volume 2 of course – and here it is:: from the opening drony horns of „Harmonika“ to the subtle guitar of the album closer „Wellenlänge“, the 4 tracks own all the interpretatory and aesthetic acerbity the ensemble is known and praised for. The first album made it immedi...

Zeitkratzer + ELLIOTT SHARP - Oneirika

Zeitkratzer + ELLIOTT SHARP - Oneirika

REINHOLD FRIEDL’s zeitkratzer proves the perfect ensemble for “Oneirika”, avantgarde-veteran ELLIOTT SHARP’s composition / soundscape inspired by CAGE-an tradition that premiered at MAERZMUSIK FESTIVAL 2014. zeitkratzer worked with ELLIOTT SHARP for the first time already in 1997 and have since then been releasing several cooperations, including 2 duo releases of zeitkratzer mastermind REINHOLD FRIEDL and ELLIOTT SHARP. Over the last 40 years the avant-garde musician has created an immense oeuvre: he has performed and recorded with a.o. JOHN ZORN, BILL LASWELL, ZEENA PARKINS, JOEY BARON, DAVID TORN and runs his own formation CARBON. SHARP also composed for the SOLDIER STRING QUARTET, the AMERICAN COMPOSER’S ORCHESTRA or the SYMPHONIC ORCHSTRA of HESSISCHER RUNDFUNK (the New Yorker actually studied with MORTON FELDMAN and ROWELL RUDD). “Oneirika”, named after the greek waking dream, is inspired by the CAGE-an tradition and, with its score making use of SHARP’s innovative method to fil...

Zeitkratzer / SVATLANA SPAJIĆ / DRAGANA TOMIĆ / OBRAD MILIĆ - Serbian War Songs

Zeitkratzer / SVATLANA SPAJIĆ / DRAGANA ...

zeitkratzer and its special guests SVETLANA SPAJIĆ (voice), DRAGANA TOMIĆ (voice) and OBRAD MILIĆ (voice, diple, gusle) present traditional Serbian songs from and about World War I. Within its 20 years of existence, REINHOLD FRIEDL’s ensemble zeitkratzer has proved its interpretatory mastership on a wide range of fields such as contemporary / avant-garde composers, electronic artists, industrial underground – and, probably most surprising on this list, also in traditional music / folklore as documented on the two albums “Volksmusik” and “Neue Volksmusik” . For “Serbian War Songs”, a selection of traditional songs from and about World War I, the “modern composition supergroup” (THE WIRE) have invited some special guests: the renowned singers SVETLANA SPAJIĆ and DRAGANA TOMIĆ (who both worked a.o. with ROBERT WILSON) and the diple / gusle player OBRAD MILIĆ. REINHOLD FRIEDL and SVETLANA SPAJIĆ (probably the most acknowledged expert for traditional songs in Serbia) selected some traditi...

ZEITKRATZER - Zeitkratzer performs songs...

Rre-interpretations of early compositions by electronic pioneers KRAFTWERK. Founded in 1997 by REINHOLD FRIEDL, ZEITKRATZER have since been creating an impressive catalogue of recordings that embraces 20th century avant-garde composers (CAGE, STOCKHAUSEN, LUCIER) as well as electronic artists (CARSTEN NICOLAI, TERRE THAEMLITZ) or underground experimentalists like THROBBING GRISTLE or COLUMN ONE. In their 20th anniversary year, the critically acclaimed ensemble will release a series of diverse albums that will explore new grounds in the typical, adventurous zeitkratzer way – the first of these albums is dedicated to KRAFTWERK and their early, kraut-esque albums “Kraftwerk” and “Kraftwerk 2”. As KRAFTWERK never re-released these albums, ZEITKRATZER gave its best to cover the first tranche of the songs (second tranche to come…). Recorded in Marseille / France in May 2016, the six tracks reveal a bucolic and even psychedelic aspect of the ensemble that’s mostly known (or feared) for its ...

Reinhold Friedl - KORE (performed live b...

REINHOLD FRIEDL and his ensemble ZEITKRATZER perform „Kore“, a hommage to the French-Greek composer IANNIS XENAKIS. “Kore” is a natural advancement of REINHOLD FRIEDL’s earlier composition “Xenakis [a]live!” (released 2007 on ASPHODEL) - a homage to the French-Greek composer IANNIS XENAKIS. The piece is conceived for nine amplified instruments demonstrating ZEITKRATZER's well established tradition of instrumental amplification (e.g. the early collaborations with ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI or MERZBOW and more recently with WILLIAM BENNETT of WHITEHOUSE) where playing amplified does not only mean making things louder, it also entails having a microscopic view of sound in which acoustic microsounds appear in a completely new context. The references to seminal XENAKIS’ tape compositions like “Persepolis” or “La Legende d’Er” are audible in the materials and textures, densities and sound masses performed by ZEITKRATZER, taking it to new areas of physical qualities that create a huge sonic archite...

Third collaboration between KEIJI HAINO, one of the most prolific artists of the Japanese experimental / noise scene, and the critically acclaimed ensemble ZEITKRATZER who enthuse with stunning interpretations of STOCKHAUSEN compositions. When KEIJI HAINO heard ZEITKRATZER rehearse for their Stockhausen performance at the Ruhrtriennale festival he spontaneously decided to join the group for that part of the programm too (HAINO was initially invited for what was released as ZEITKRATZER + KEIJI HAINO: Live At Jahrhunderthalle Bochum). Here too HAINO, one of the most prolific artists of the Japanese experimental / noise scene, focuses on his voice while ZEITKRATZER create the instrumental environment applying their extended techniques of amplification and unique skills as musicians. Once again the ensemble proves its outstanding quality that has gained them high reputation with recordings of such diverse artists / composers like THROBBING GRISTLE, CARSTEN NICOLAI (ALVA NOTO), LOU REED’s...

Zeitkratzer/Whitehouse - Whitehouse: Performed Live by Zeitkratzer

Zeitkratzer/Whitehouse - Whitehouse: Per...

William Bennett, the musical mastermind of the band Whitehouse has already worked with Zeitkratzer on several occasions. And he also appears on the first track of this CD. Recorded live at the festival Musique Action in Nancy, France, you can get an impression of how the deep bass frequencies -- produced by the huge orchestra drum, at some points as well by the beaten bass strings of the piano or by subtones of the horns -- would vibrate the floor of the venue. At the same time high piping sounds, amplified violin harmonics, and bitten clarinet tones attack the listener. A music with crystal-clear or even neurosurgical precision. And one can hear voices all over -- distorted from being spoken through a trombone or a French horn -- phantom voices in the density of the sounds, etc. No electronic effects are used -- it's pure acoustic power! Press on the first collaboration with Whitehouse: Vital Weekly: "Excellent work. A total racket." The Wire even became addicted: "You squirm in your ...

Zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino - s/t Live At Jahrhunderthalle

Zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino - s/t Live At ...

On his second release with Zeitkratzer, Keiji Haino concentrates solely on his voice. No electronics are used except for amplification. Nevertheless, this live recording is even more radical than the first one. Radical is the concentration on the very limited but frenetic musical material, worked out in detail, which is rarely heard in the noise context -- enabling Keiji Haino to sit on it, fly over, to merge or just to oppose. Zeitkratzer's amplified instruments, played with extended techniques as developed by the group and its outstanding musicians over more than a decade and Haino's incredible richness in voice timbres and noises complement each other perfectly. It's one of the closest and most natural cooperations Zeitkratzer ever had. Wild and beautiful. Shouting, scratching, screaming, piping, chattering, crying, rumbling, oscillating, roaring, clashing, juttering, tinkling, singing, ... and at the end, it's hilarious, powerful music, pure noise and pure melody. As the Chicago Re...

Reinhold Friedl - Inside Piano (2CD)

Reinhold Friedl - Inside Piano (2CD)

This is the first solo release by Zeitkratzer's mastermind Reinhold Friedl. He teaches the grand piano how to sing and to sound like an orchestra, calling this new way of playing an old instrument "Inside-Piano." Many listeners of Zeitkratzer releases do not recognize particular sounds that come from the piano and thus cannot identify it. After listening to this release, the source will become clear and they will get a new idea of the instrument. The good old grand piano plays aggressive noise attacks, choir-like symphonic movements, and strange, complex sound fibrillations, sometimes lighting up single prepared piano notes, juxtaposed with the tremendous bass of the nearly three-meter long strings. Recorded on a Steinway D concert piano at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, 2010. Published courtesy of Philharmonie Luxembourg. Piano: Steinway D-274, microphones: Neumann U87, Neumann KM184. Recorded by Ralf Meinz, mixed and mastered by Rashad Becker....

Zeitkratzer / Alvin Lucier - Old School

Zeitkratzer / Alvin Lucier - Old School

Alvin Lucier is one of the most outstanding American minimalists -- he could be called a sound physician and his compositions regarded as acoustic research settings. Often, his pieces turn inside-out the inner properties of the room they are played in and the instrument that they are played on. Zeitkratzer had the chance to work with the composer in Dijon, France in 2008, and continued to work on and to program his music in different places. The Philharmonie in Luxembourg turned out to be the ideal space for recording. On this CD, you can hear how Lucier enables Zeitkratzer to create sounds most people have never heard before. Ringing overtones, a singing piano, a thrilling concert triangle, pencils on little objects, and how irritating a violoncello, a viola and a piano can sound together, creating sonic interferences. This music is not only a physical phenomenology, but becomes inherently a sensual listening experience. Directed by Reinhold Friedl. Musicians include: Burkhard Schloth...

Zeitkratzer / James Tenney - Oldschool

International avant-garde ensemble Zeitkratzer continue their Old School series with a release dedicated to the work of American composer James Tenney. This CD presents a new recording of Critical Band -- Tenney's late classic -- with maximum clarity. Also included is the first recording of Harmonium #2. Both works demonstrate the remarkable power and resplendent sharpness which Tenney achieved by composing with pure tunings. Koan: Having Never Written A Note For Percussion, for tam-tam, completes this CD with an orgiastic listening experience in the form of a huge crescendo on this wonderfully simple instrument -- from whispering to singing, culminating in shrill roaring and blustering -- and its dark decay. Tenney's music as a sensual sound adventure! Directed by Reinhold Friedl. Musicians include: Frank Gratkowski (clarinet), Hayden Chisholm (alto saxophone), Matt Davis (trumpet), Hilary Jeffery (trombone), Reinhold Friedl (piano), Maurice de Martin (percussion), Burkhard Schlothaue...

Presenting a second volume of collaborative works between European avant garde ensemble Zeitkratzer and modern electronic composers. Terre Thaemlitz developed the present pieces for and with Zeitkratzer. The starting points were Thaemlitz' releases Means From An End and Couture Cosmetique, which show him as an electroacoustic composer with an amazing sensibility for sound and harsh cutting techniques. This is especially evident on "Sloppy 42nds," and moreover, Thaemlitz' filtering techniques are transformed into a complex, nearly surrealistic instrumental sound on "Superbonus." Thaemlitz' provenance as a New York underground DJ is recalled, as well as his political engagement on tracks such as "Down Home Kami-Sakunobe" and "Hobo Train." On this CD, you will find the most pop-oriented music -- including references to dance and house -- Zeitkratzer has ever released! But don't forget to listen to the longest and main work on this release, hidden as "Superbonus."...

Reinhold Friedl - Schönberg Pierrot Lunaire, Cheap Imitation

Reinhold Friedl - Schönberg Pierrot Luna...

Berlin's Reinhold Friedl is a practitioner of the inside-piano technique and founder and director of the Zeitkratzer and Piano-Inside-Out ensembles. His piece, Schönberg Pierrot Lunaire -- Cheap Imitation is exactly what the title says: an endless funny parody of Schönberg's Pierrot Lunaire, a composition often taken far too seriously. At the same time, it is a compositional condensation of Schönberg's techniques, conducted in a genius way by trumpet player Franz Hautzinger from Vienna, a longtime-member of Zeitkratzer; sung by the soprano Marcus Weiser, who has succeeded already in Berlin as a singer under the name of Mark Markowitsch. Just fun, short and concentrated, as it should be connected to the second Vienna school. Commissioned by Wiener Festwochen, premiered at Konzerthaus Vienna. Recorded live at Donaufestival Krems, Austria, April 24, 2006....

Zeitkratzer - Neue Volksmusik

Zeitkratzer - Neue Volksmusik

Internationally-acclaimed ensemble Zeitkratzer tackles folk music on their project Neue Volksmusik (New Folk Music). Zeitkratzer approaches folk music in its essence: constant transformation. Genuine folk music is what it is due to an inherent state of flux, defined by its constantly changing nature. It is in fact an authentic practice for Zeitkratzer to claim different musical traditions, taking possession of them and forming them to fit specific ideas. This project started in 2009 when Zeitkratzer presented Volksmusik (ZKR 002CD), an anarchic ethno-musicological journey through the Danube valley. From heartrending group-yodeling to wild Balkan capers, the ensemble pulled out all the stops. Despite the somewhat brutal humor of the music, there is never an intention to fool around or make a satire on folk music. The previous folk music repertoire has been expanded for Neue Volksmusik with music traditions from Switzerland. Of course, Zeitkratzer does not treat this music in any less of...
