Jürg Frey: Borderland Melodies

Read "Borderland Melodies" reviewed by John Eyles

Borderland Melodies is welcome for several reasons. Firstly, it is numbered “at200," indicating it is the landmark two-hundredth album issued by Another Timbre since its debut in the autumn 2007. As the label's hundredth album was released in 2016, it seems its rate of releasing albums is increasing (maybe a side effect of Covid?) Secondly, like ...

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 ...

Quentin Tolimieri: Monochromes

Read "Monochromes" reviewed by John Eyles

Ever since its first release, Blurred Music, in July 2018, the Elsewhere label has never been reluctant to release multi-disc albums when the music has merited them. Of the label's twenty-one albums to date, three have been double albums, and two triple albums--that first release and this one, Monochromes. Another characteristic of Elsewhere releases has been ...

New to Another Timbre

Read "New to Another Timbre" reviewed by John Eyles

Any music fan casually scanning the credits of Another Timbre's catalogue of releases (which is rapidly nearing the two hundred mark) could not fail to be impressed by such established names as John Cage, Morton Feldman, Antoine Beuger and Jurg Frey.

Elsewhere Return Visitors

Read "Elsewhere Return Visitors" reviewed by John Eyles

As the Elsewhere label's third anniversary, in July 2021, closely followed the June release of its fifteenth and sixteenth albums, it seemed an appropriate time to look back. In a way, those two albums tell a large part of the story as, together, they feature three musicians who are all return visitors to the label, Anastassis ...
