Germaine Sijstermans: Betula

Read "Betula" reviewed by John Eyles

Given that past albums on the Elsewhere label have already featured such Wandelweiser favourites as Dante Boon, Jürg Frey, Anastassis Philippakopoulos, Michael Pisaro-Liu, Stefan Thut and Guy Vandromme, it was no surprise when the label released Betula, the debut album from Dutch composer and clarinetist Germaine Sijstermans. Her track “M" had already appeared on the album Amsterdam . Berlin . Moscow (Edition Wandelweiser, 2021), which was curated by Boon who also contributed two pieces alongside those by Sijstermans, Seamus Cater, ...

Antoine Beuger: Ockeghem Octets

Read "Ockeghem Octets" reviewed by John Eyles

Between “dedekind duos" (2003) and “ihwe tunings for twenty" (2005), Wandelweiser co-founder Antoine Beuger wrote a series of pieces for groupings of all sizes from two members up to twenty, the scores being published by Wandelweiser. In each piece, the musicians softly play long, sustained notes designated in the score, with the ebbing and flowing tones creating pleasing soundscapes that slowly evolve. Each of the series was dedicated to one of Beuger's heroes, with the name of any series being ...

Another Timbre’s Berlin Series goes from strength to strength

Read "Another Timbre’s Berlin Series goes from strength to strength" reviewed by John Eyles

Another Timbre's Berlin Series began slowly and gathered momentum gradually. The first issue in the series appeared in spring 2013 and set a pattern for the series by being split between two of the city's fine duos--Michael Thieke/Olivier Toulemonde and Lucio Capece/Jamie Drouin. Despite that volume garnering considerable praise, the second one did not appear until a year after it and may have been somewhat overshadowed by its inclusion in a batch of releases with the extraordinary Despairs Had Governed ...

Three New Another Timbre Releases

Read "Three New Another Timbre Releases" reviewed by John Eyles

As it approaches its sixth birthday, the Another Timbre label is into an exciting period of consolidation and development, building on the foundations laid down in its first five years. The label's latest releases are evidence of this, as all three of them feature musicians who have already made significant contributions to the Another Timbre catalogue. Together, these releases also demonstrate the label's drift away from free improvisation and towards more composed music, while still allowing a place for individual ...

Antoine Beuger, Jurg Frey: Dedalus

Read "Dedalus" reviewed by John Eyles

Dutch flautist Antoine Beuger and Swiss clarinetist Jürg Frey are two of the leading lights of the highly influential Wandelweiser group, whose music (according to another key member, Radu Malfatti) is about “the evaluation and integration of silence(s) rather than an ongoing carpet of never-ending sounds." Dedalus features two compositions by Beuger and one by Frey, recorded live on two days in April 2012, at L'Ancienne Brasserie Bouchoule space at Les Instants Chavirés in Montreuil, Paris. In total, the album ...
