Trumpeter and composer Thomas Heberer devised the graphic notation "cookbook" for the trio of Joachim Badenhorst (clarinet) and Pascal Niggenkemper (bass) for their "Klippe" album, here expanding the concept in these 12 inspired pieces.
Heberer, Thomas Clarino
Label: Red Toucan
Released in: Canada
"As a composer writing for improvisers, I try to devise distinctive musical triggers to help shape the sonic outcome and inspire participants.
Success requires a certain amount of loose ends per piece; musicians will pick those up to complete the job.
When Clarino got started in New York City in 2009, I introduced my then-new graphic notation code "Cookbook" to Joachim and Pascal. Both these amazing artists were kind enough to take the time to learn the semantics along with a bunch of scores (see some excerpts here).
The result was our initial recording Klippe.
Following the release, both on vinyl and CD, the three of us thought that there was more to explore in this direction, so taking the momentum, I wrote this other set of tracks here, going "one step beyond" (remember that great Jackie McLean album?).
Whereas the tunes on Klippe were incorporating very open materials with few restrictions on pitch and rhythm, the new ones are more distinctive and "organized," mixing the original concepts and strategies with parts written on regular staff paper.
The goal remained the same: Create a music that is more than the sum of our shared experiences -- fresh and inspiring for us to play and for you to listen to."-Thomas Heberer
