descriptions, reviews, &c.

"...while their playing is solidly rooted in the idioms of Baroque music, Schiller's concept of the spinet is aggressively 21st century; the venerable instrument is prepared with a variety of objects and ends up sounding like a cross between an acoustic guitar (imagine one played by Keith Rowe) and a toy piano. The music is, for the most part, nervy, twitchy stuff, trading twangs, snaps and scratches, but on "streifen" Schiller combats his instrument's natural lack of sustain by using what sounds like an Ebow to produce some eerie theremin-like wailing, whose sustained pitches Kimmig skilfully picks out with artificial harmonics. It's serious and careful, but often feels like it doesn't quite know where it's going. Which is fine if you subscribe to the in-the-moment aesthetic of improvised music (as elegantly expounded by Malcolm Goldstein, whose playing Kimmig's often recalls), but the tracks that work best are those - "code", "regen" - which explore the micro-world of delicateshudders and tiny pizzicati interspersed with silence."-Dan Warburton, Paris Transatlantic


Artist Biographies:

"Harald Kimmig (born October 9, 1956 in Offenburg ) is a German violinist of free improvisational music and composer.

Kimmig had violin lessons from 1966 to 1974, and from 1975 to 1982 he studied philosophy, sociology and art history. He took classes at Leszek Zadlo, Muneer Abdul Fataah, John Tchicai and Cecil Taylor. From 1984 he was active as a professional musician, initially with soloists and as a member of the First Improvising String Orchestra. He played in the trio with Georg Wolf and Lukas Lindenmaier (CD rif-rif 1990) and is co-leader of F-Orkestra, who worked with musicians such as Buddy Collette or Peter Kowald. He also played with the ensemble of Cecil Taylor (CDs "Legba Crossing", "Corona"), John Tchicai, Vladimir Chekassin, Doug Hammond, Lee Konitz, Tony Oxley, Gabriele Hasler, Sirone and JŸrgen Wuchner. He works in the trio with Carl Ludwig HŸbsch and L Quan Ninh. He is also a member of the ensembles of Angelika Sheridan, GŽraldine Keller and Hideto Heshiki. Together with Norbert Rodenkirchen he composed the Aura Christinae in 2004, which repeatedly performed in Stommeln (u. A. With Maria Jonas and Albrecht Maurer ). Kimmig also writes string quartets and major orchestral works ('The Course of Light and Darkness', Oratorio, 1999) as well as film music."

"Christoph Schiller was born in 1963 in Stuttgart. He studied fine arts at the Kunstakademie Stuttgart and HfBK Hamburg. He later studied piano with Daniel Cholette and music theory in Basel. He has been playing concerts of improvised music on piano since 1987. In recent years the piano has been abandoned in favour of the lighter spinet, for which he has developed specific playing techniques which are influenced by inside piano techniques. Besides keyboard instruments his work with the voice has become increasingly important. He lives in Weil am Rhein and Basel."
