Descriptions, Reviews, &c.
On this CD, his second as a solo artist, we hear Swiss percussionist Christian Wolfarth at his most focused and restrained. Unlike many contemporary drummers, Wolfarth has never expanded his instrument with electronic devices, nevertheless he explores an aesthetic that could be called 'electronic' in some respects. Reduction plays an important role in Wolfarth's music as does an almost obsessive love for the detail and an impressive palette of sonic possibilities that the drummer has been developing over the past 15 years of intense solo-playing."-For4Ears

Wolfarth, Christian
39 / Part I - III
(Hiddenbell Records)
39 tracks make up this compelling 3-part solo percussion work from Swiss improviser and composer Christian Wolfarth, using a game approach where some sequences are determined by the roll of a dice for note values, rest and tempo, Wolfarth performing on dead wood, a drum or 39 pine cones, augmented with recordings of stones, water, footsteps, church bells, &c.
