More Info

A very quiet, breathing & meditative work from this east-german composer for 8 female singers & vocalists and 4 instruments (sax, transverse flute, viola, violoncello), recorded in a german abbey using the natural reverb there. One-tracker, 70+ min, spacey & a bit alien, creates quite a special atmosphere.

"voice, books and FIRE ist das Ergebnis lngeren und noch andauernden Nachdenkens ber den Zusammenhang zwischen Musik und Sprache, Sprache als Klang und Sprache als Text, des Nachdenkens ber die vielfltigen Verknpfungen zwischen Texten verschiedener kultureller und religiser Traditionen, zwischen der Arbeit des menschlichen Geistes in der Gegenwart und der Vergangenheit. Das Nachdenken vollzieht sich vor dem Hintergrund der mannigfaltigen Fragen, die aus dem Problem resultieren, diese verschiedenen Traditionen, Sprachen und Texte zu verstehen; mehr noch: sie gegenwrtig zu machen in einer Situation, in welcher wesentliche Teile sogar der eigenen Tradition und Geschichte weitgehendem Vergessen anheimgefallen sind. / /
voice, books and FIRE is the result of my reflections about the relationships between music and language: language as sound and language as text, the numerous relationships between texts of different cultural and religious traditions, between the work of the human spirit in the present and in the past and the questions arising from the problem of understanding these different traditions, languages and texts and representing them in a present, which has lost knowledge about substantial parts, even of its own tradition and history." [Jakob Ullmann, part of credits]
