descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Michael Thieke has recorded frequently for Creative Sources, contributing to excellent ensemble discs by Schwimmer and one entitled Kreis. Leuchten (Creative Sources 040) is a solo recital - comprised of five improvisations from June 2002 - for alto clarinet. In some ways it's a shame this disc didn't come out much sooner, as the wonderful techniques Thieke explores are perhaps somewhat more commonplace now than they were three years ago. But the music is still thoughtful, rich, and satisfying. On each track, Thieke rigorously explores a different technical area. He displays a remarkable range of wet noises on "Nicht Existent." The breathiness of "Diffusion" is quite intense and gets right into your earhole - at times it sounds as if there are multiple players at work here, and in some ways sounds more like a no-input mixing board piece than a reeds performance. Close attention is required to digest the tiny insect noises of "Jene Randfiguren," yet this is an interval before the boisterous, expressive concluding pieces. On "Digamma" he actually gets his clarinet to sound like a bass flute, and on "Quellend" the already extended and reconsidered properties of his instrument are abstracted and devolved further as hissing, crackling feedback seems to emit from the horn. It's a fine disc, and more satisfying than some of the label's other recent solo reeds releases."-Jason Bivins (Dusted Magazine)

Artist Biographies:

"The Berlin-based clarinetist/composer/performer Michael Thieke is equally at home across a broad range of musical environments, such as experimental song forms, collectively composing projects, improvising collectives, and music on the fringes of jazz. He is exploring the minutiae of sound, timbre and noise, with a particular interest in microtonality and related sound phenomena, and with a preference for long-term collaborations and collective work.

Some of his current Projects are: The International Nothing (with Kai Fagaschinski cl, CD on ftarri), The Magic I.D. (with Christof Kurzmann, Kai Fagaschinski, Margareth Kammerer, CD/LP on ErstPop and staubgold), The Pitch (with Boris Baltschun organ, Koen Nutters b, Morten Olsen dr, LP on gaffer), Der lange Schatten (with Håvard Wiik p, Antonio Borghini b), Voutchkova/Thieke (with Biliana Voutchkova vl), Splitter Orchester, Toulemonde/Thieke (with Olivier Toulemonde acoustic objects), Hotelgäste (with Derek Shirley b, Dave Bennett g, CD on schraum, LP on self), Michael Thieke Unununium (with Luca Venitucci acc/p, Martin Siewert g, Christian Weber b, Derek Shirley b, Steve Heather dr, Eric Schaefer dr, CD on charhizma), motif (with Atle Nymo sax, Håkon Mjåset Johansen dr, Eivind Lønning tp, Ole Morten Vågan b, Håvard Wiik p), Porta Chiusa (with paed Conca cl, Hans Koch cl), Spirit Songs (with Mike Cooper voc/g, Elio Martusciello el, Fabrizio Spera dr, Luca Venitucci acc/el.), Roman Tics (with Burkhard Beins, Luca Venitucci, CD on Cathnor), Cowards Bend The Knee (Live Music in different setups with the film Cowards Bend The Knee by Guy Maddin), Gebhard Ullmann's The Clarinet Trio (with Gebhard Ullmann bass clarinet, Jürgen Kupke clarinet) and Uli Gumpert Workshop Band."
