Percussionists Niggli & Zumthor performing Felix Profos' compositions for drums, gongs and percussion, the tension of metallic sounds that avoid customary approaches for those instruments.

Niggli, Lucas / Peter Conradin Zumthor

Niggli, Lucas / Peter Conradin Zumthor: Profos (Not Two Records)
Label: Not Two Records    
Released in: Poland    

"[...] Music that is abrasive and hard. Unwavering. Primal. Robotic. The two percussion assemblies don't give off the standard sound of drums and cymbals; metallic sounds - in one sense "impure" - have been prepared instead. Their sound grates even though it is muffled. The sounds of the drums and bells don't ring out and it's difficult to establish their pitch, but every composition is a transparent conglomeration of precisely chosen and balanced sounds. ....They've managed to achieve more than a "snapshot" of a live performance, precisely because, with extreme sensitivity to the kinetic and cathartic character of the compositions, they have created a musical space that allows the disc to be experienced as a complete entity. The speakers send out a work composed of sound, time and space moving in equal measure the listener's mind, heart and body."-Alfred Zimmerlin, from the Linernotes
