Ensemble XII performs pieces by percussionist Fritz Hauser that were composed with an attention to detail that is heard in the timbre, texture, density and dynamics of his arrangements.

Pieces For Percussion

Hauser, Fritz: Pieces For Percussion (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Hauser's ear for timbre and texture, density and dynamics, informs his compositions. A single woodblock, or snare, or cymbal penetrates the existential emptiness, finds common ground with the addition of other instruments. Metallic tones shimmer or rasp in an illusion of electronics. A linear pulse is expanded, layered, or multiplied, registers as the complex momentum of thought. Rhythmic patterns as motion studies - static, kinetic, but always disciplined - occupy space with sculptural multi-dimensionality. Silence is rigid or fluid. Colors resonate as in a Rothko or Hofmann canvas - soft, muted, detached, or lustrous, lucid, keen. But like all music, it is aimed at the ear, not the eye. It is best heard in total darkness, with an open mind."-Art Lange
