"More like un-cropped images on a contact sheet, then burned and dodged portraits, this eight-track, 33-minute CD is a literal record of an improvisational session between two sound experimenters of divergent backgrounds but shared interests. Raw and reflective at the same time, A Set of Music Played on June 17th substantiates the universality and vitality of improvised music Wuppertal-born Alexander Frangenheim, 56, in whose Berlin studio the disc was recorded, is a veteran bassist who is involved in multi-media projects and over the years has played with everyone from trumpeter Axel Dorner to pianist Chris Burn. Tel Aviv-native Ariel Shibolet, 44, has like Frangenheim, taught music, organized concerts and worked in different media. The soprano saxophonist has expanded his musical partnership to Europe and the US with the likes of bassist Joelle Leandre and pianist Scott R. Looney, and this particular set of interactions may be buttressed since he studied cello in his youth. In fact there are times on the CD when the textures rubbed or blown from the players' respective instrument are so congruent that it takes a time to distinguish one from another. Even in repose there are some similarities, as on the first track where the saxophonist's watery cross blowing is mated with the bassist's loggy pulls. Downtime is relative though, since most of the session is concerned with how many sharpened or jagged textures cam be shaken, spewed, sprawled or shoved from either instrument. Mostly pacing themselves like well-trained contenders in a long-distance race, the crescendo of intensity occurs on "zweistaatenlosung 7". Here, as if he's broken free for one event in a marathon, Shibolet's trilling vibratos rush out in a stream of multiphonics. For his part, like a coach normalizing his charge's output with proven techniques, Frangenheim mutes the reed explosions with curbed bow swipes and crunching vibrations. While a track such as "zweistaatenlosung 5" expands the tonemelding so that it appears as if each partner has reached a staccato limit, this idea of going beyond accepted virtuosity is best expressed on "zweistaatenlosung 4". As Shibolet emphasizes the metallic qualities of his horn, and Frangeheim concentrates on exploiting his bull fiddle's wood and catgut elements, an escalation of guillotine-sharp twangs and wounded animal-like yelps emanate from both players. Having demonstrated that like the guitarist in the film Spinal Tap they can take the sound past up to proverbial 11, they shift tactics and with narrower and narrower timbres and briefer and briefer soundings dissolve the duet to a rewarding conclusion. Functioning memorably in miniature, perhaps the next step is for the bassist and saxophonist to expand their duet at a greater length and perhaps with more partners. That too would be worth hearing."-Ken Waxman, JazzWord

"Born in Wuppertal, he studied sculpture at the academy of fine arts in Stuttgart and at the same time classical Doublebass with Reinald Schwarz, soloist of Stuttgart Philharmonics. Having encountered experimental music in his youth, beside classical playing he soon ventured into free improvisation as well as working with graphic notations in the ensemble of composer Klaus Fessmann, who holds a professorship at Salzburg Mozarteum. After having met Günter Christmann in the early 90s, who became a close friend over the years, a grant offered the possibility to go to London, where he finally was able to explode into a most intense period of sessions, collaborations, concerts and recording sessions, this all with help by John Russell, Chris Burn and John Butcher. Back in Stuttgart he was asked to teach experimental music at the academy of fine arts Stuttgart, which he did for a period of ten years and which led him to extended sound and performance explorations in collaboration with his students. He continued to organize the festival concepts of doing - Interaktion Tanz Musik (1992 - 2003) and, after an intense trip through many european countries meeting dancers for free improvisations and an invitation to the 5th Composers Choreographers Exchange (Southbank Center London), he was co-founding the production center for dance and performance Stuttgart. Being the head of this association for three years and after the festival of concepts of doing 2003, he pushed these structures aside for regaining breath and new freedom and inner engagement in life and arts. At the same time this moment was accompanied by his last days in ensemble zeitkratzer, which he was member of since its beginning in 1997 (performances of famous MMM by and with Lou Reed as well as music by alva noto, Merzbow, Lee Ronaldo, Elliott Sharp, DJ's a.o.).
2005 saw him establishing himself in a space in Berlin to seek new projects. Since then he has recorded three cds, created the music for the experimental film "Lupinen löschen" by Sabine Schöbel, which was shown at the Berlinale 2007, and started to work with analog electronics on the acoustic double bass as well as on an electric one, introducing this to his collaborations with dance.
He played in groups... trio with Jim Denley and Steve Noble; duo with Phil Durrant (cd); quintet with Evan Parker, Phil Wachsman, Thomas Lehn, Roger Turner; duo with Günter Christmann (cd); "Ein Quartett" with Bieler-Wendt, Kolkowski, Zimmerlin; trio with Chris Burn and Axel Dörner.
Projects with Günter Christmann: Sextett Vario 34 (cd) und "con moto" (music, dance, sound poetry, film) with David Zambrano, Urs Leimgruber, Fine Kwiatkofski, Elke Schipper (dvd).
Concerts with... Paul Lovens, John Butcher, Phil Minton, Derek Bailey, Sven-Ake Johannson, David Moss, John Russell, Johannes Bauer, LeQuan Ninh, Dietmar Diesner, LaDonna Smith, Malcolm Goldstein, Fred Frith, Vinko Globokar, Barry Guy, Torsten Müller, Carlos Zingaro, Fred van Hove, Urs Leimgruber, Mats Gustafsson, Dorothea Schürch, Herb Robertson, Alberto Braida, Michael Griener, Yumiko Tanaka a.o.
