sample the album:
"Dieter Ammann says about himself that he works extremely slowly; sometimes he just manages to finish one bar a day, sometimes he isn't moving ahead at all because he has scruples about putting down the next note. It goes without saying that you can't do a lot of commissions in this way, and yet Ammann has still created a small, easy-to-grasp and expressive oeuvre over the past twelve years. This slow creative process not only seems to be inconsistent with the very lively and highly gestural musical language at first, on the face of it it also seems to be inconsistent with the background of this composer, who as an active musician grew up with jazz and rock and above all improvised music as well."-Thomas Meyer
