THANK GOODNESS FOR ENSEMBLES LIKE ZEITKRATZER! - The Wire

Zeitkratzer to zespół złożony z gwiazd muzycznej awangardy. Hasło jakie im przyświeca to: Różnicuj, poszukuj i baw się dobrze! Niewielu wirtuozowskim zespołom muzyki współczesnej przyświeca podobne motto. Ale też niewielu łączy w swoim repertuarze kompozycji Iannisa Xenakisa z coverami utworów Whitehouse, piosenkami ludowymi oraz uproszczonymi wersjami dzieł Arnolda Schönberga. Niewiele wreszcie współpracuje z twórcami sceny noise (Keiji Haino, Merzbow), konceptualnej elektroniki (Terre Thaemlitz) czy muzyki rockowej (Lou Reed). Zeitkratzer to wyzwanie rzucone kompozytorom przez wybitnie utalentowanych wykonawców.

Album jest dedykowany Johnowi Cage'owi i stanowi interpretację jego utworów: "Four6" (1992), "Five" (1988) i "Hymnkus" (1986)

Recenzja z Boomkat:

Recorded at 2006's Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, this Zeitkratzer performance tackles the John Cage compositions 'Four6' (1992), 'Five' (1988) and 'Hymnkus' (1986). Previously tackled by Sonic Youth on their Goodbye 20th Century album, 'Four6' stretches out over thirty minutes, prompting each performer to cycle through a series of twelve pre-determined sounds according to a complex structuring sequence. The outcome is more visceral and immediately absorbing than the tricky score suggests, and Zeitkratzer deliver to their usual high standards. 'Five' is considerably snappier, though is performed under similar conditions, consisting of five voices playing through five synchronised time brackets, each including a maximum of three notes. Finally, 'Hymnkus' represents another difficult half-hour piece, based around eight chromatic tones between G and D1 and a collection of abstract noises, planned to mimic the sonic oppositions between vowels and consonants in hymnal singing.
