More Info

Eine polnische Komponistin in der famosen ina economique-Reihe: die in Paris lebende Polin ELBIETA SIKORA beeindruckt mit dem vierteiligen, dicht-atmosphren LISBOA, TRAMWAY 28, basierend auf Tape und Saxophon, gewidmet Fernando Pessoa. Dahinter das dramatisch ausufernde JANEK WISNIEWSKI, DECEMBRE, POLOGNE von 1982, welches die unruhigen Zeiten der Arbeiteraufstnde in Polen wiederspiegelt. Groe Klangkunst, unbedingt zu empfehlen!!

"..includes "Lisboa, tramway 28" (1998) for tape and saxophones (Daniel Kientzy) and "Janek Wisniewski, dcembre, Pologne" (1982) for tape. the latter is a piece in their classic style and would not be out of place on one of their LP releases. "In the mercurial lighting of the Gdansk factories, workers carry the corpse of Janek Wisniewski over their heads, on a door torn from their worksite. Victim of an absurd furry - Orpheus entering hell. Sikora's great musical metaphor bursts forth in a series of sonorous flashes SOS, abstract telegraph, irradiated insects, Tibetan funereal chants, monochromatic tonality, primitive percussion, mental speleology, irony, sarcasm and laughter, Eros-Thanatos, Gregorian ritual, liquid music, cosmic winds seething with bumblebees which buzz in the rhythm of the bullets that killed Wisniewski. Jacob facing the Angel, a struggle between Freedom and Death" - Ladislas Kijno, "A Page in my diary"." [Anomalous Records]
