Reinhold Friedl / Zeitkratzer: KORE [VINYL] (KARLRECORDS)

Released in: Germany    

"Reinhold Friedl and his Zeitkratzer Ensemble perform Friedl's Kore, an homage to Greek-French composer Iannis Xenakis. A natural advancement of Friedl's composition Xenakis [A]Live!, released in 2007 by Asphodel, Kore was conceived for nine amplified instruments, demonstrating zeitkratzer's well-established tradition of instrumental amplification (e.g. its early collaborations with Zbigniew Karkowski and Merzbow and its 2010s collaborations with William Bennett of Whitehouse (including ZKR 017CD/KR 019LP, 2014)) in which amplification not only makes things louder but also offers a microscopic perspective on sound that situates acoustic microsounds in a completely new context.

References to seminal Xenakis tape compositions like Persepolis and La Legende d'Eer are audible in the materials, textures, densities, and sound masses performed by Zeitkratzer, with a physical quality that creates a huge sonic architecture. Recorded live in January 2013 during the klub katarakt festival in Hamburg, Kore adds a stunning chapter to zeitkratzer's audacious catalog and a new sort of intensity to contemporary chamber music."-Zeitkratzer Productions

Also available on CD.
