Beuger, Antoine
Silent Harmonies In Discrete Continuity

Beuger, Antoine : Silent Harmonies In Discrete Continuity (Edition Wandelweiser Records)

Label: Edition Wandelweiser Records    
Released in: Germany    


Silence is not an acoustical phenomenon

Silent Harmonies:
three-minute sounds, stationary, quiet, pure waves
each sound has eight frequencies, each from a different octave range

there is silence where depth disappears and expanse emerges:
on the surface

in discrete continuity:
one soud goes, another one comes
and on it goes, step by step, continuously

still waters are said to run deep,
but in reality it is the imperturbability of their surface
that impresses us.

for Marcia Hafif:
American painter of monochrome paintings

and a quiet personŐs silence hides nothing deep -
it hides nothing at all.



"Antoine Beuger (b. 1955 in Oosterhout, Netherlands) studied composition with Ton de Leeuw at Sweelinck Coservatorium in Amsterdam 1973-78. In 1990 he began composing after an interruption of about 10 years. Two years later he founded Edition Wandelweiser together with composer/performer Burkhard Schlothauer. Since 1994 he's been active with the conception and organisation of KLANGRAUM, a concert series at Kunstraum Düsseldorf. During the years 1995-2001 he was working together with visual artist Mauser as artistic director of "Werkraum", Place for Interdisciplinary Artistic Events, Cologne. Since 1996 he's been artistic director of edition wandelweiser records and since 2004 managing director of Edition Wandelweiser gmbh."
