Working at the juncture of improvisation and contemporary composition, Polwechsel performs 4 pieces, each composed by a different member of the group, that allow individual players to express themselves while remaining a part of the group.
Traces Of Wood
Released in: Switzerland
"Central problems of a common aesthetic and history of musical materiality are taken as the starting point for the individual concepts in the four new Polwechsel pieces. The works re-interpret this aesthetic from the perspective of the different approaches of the musicians. However, Traces of Wood is definitely not only about the traces that shared musical material and different personal styles leave in the respective work. It is above all about reflecting the common history that, clearly audible, has been deposited in the materials, personal styles and compositions, and this history is revisited in every nuance of the music... Traces of Wood is a discourse that follows a double movement. It is the sum of a collective effort, and multiplies the results that can be drawn from this sum."- Matthias Haenisch
