descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Music by bass clarinet and soprano saxophone player Hans Koch has been reviewed before and I particularly enjoyed his solo release Erfolg (see Vital Weekly 964). For Thomas Peter it has been a long time ago since I reviewed Medir (Vital Weekly 682). That one was entirely made with digital means, but on the disc he recorded with Koch he plays 'amplified objects, live electronics'.

The music was recorded in March 2014 in Biel, Switzerland and whatever sessions they recorded together, it has been cut down to fourteen pieces, in total 48 minutes, which means that these pieces are not always very long. Other than Leila Bordreuil and Michael Foster reviewed elsewhere, who gave all of their pieces titles, and 'thus' make it more song like, this doesn't seem to be the case with Koch and Peter. Their pieces have no titles.

Overall the music here as a very electro-acoustic feeling to it; perhaps not a strange thing if one realizes one of the players uses amplified objects, but also Koch makes his wind instruments occasionally sound like an amplified objects (whether or not it is amplified we don't know). These pieces are very vibrant with lots of dynamics within the sound and lots of interaction between both players. At times quite noise based, such as with the eight piece here, being all feedback and noise. But they also know how to pull back and play something more introspective and mellow.

There is quite some variation in these pieces, loud, quiet, rhythmical and there is an occasional role for the wind instruments to sound like wind instruments. This is a most excellent work of improvised electro-acoustic music. Very fresh and exciting"-Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly
