Two compositions that I wrote, performed by (and with me on electronics) The Ensemble Contrechamps, from Geneva, Switzerland.
This CD, released by Firework Edition Records, features two pieces recorded in 2019 and 2021 with the musicians of that amazing contemporary ensemble.
Akiko Ahrendt : violin
Martina Brodbeck : cello
Laurent Bruttin : clarinet
Sébastien Cordier : percussions
Thierry Debons : percussions
Samuel Fried : piano
Maximilian Haft : violin
Francisco Meirino : electronics
Stefan Wirth : piano
These pieces are based on the idea of acoustic instruments imitating electronic sounds created by a live performer. The core, structure, and length of the pieces are defined by a graphic score that leaves room to the musicians for the imitation of those sounds. Off-balance patterns are guiding the listener through tension and decompression, unease pitches, all into a beautiful sonic malaise.
