zeitkratzer + keiji haino: stockhausen aus den sieben tagen

The third collaboration between Keiji Haino, one of the most prolific artists of the Japanese experimental/noise scene, and the critically acclaimed zeitkratzer ensemble, comprising stunning interpretations of Stockhausen compositions. When Keiji Haino heard zeitkratzer rehearsing for their Stockhausen performance at the Ruhrtriennale festival, he spontaneously decided to join the group for that part of the program, in addition to the collaborative performance that was released in 2014 as zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino and Live at Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. In the Stockhausen performance, Haino focuses on his voice while zeitkratzer creates the instrumental environment, applying their amplified extended techniques and unique skills as musicians. The ensemble proves its outstanding quality once again, having already earned its reputation with recordings of works by Throbbing Gristle, John Cage, Alvin Lucier, and Lou Reed (Metal Machine Music) and collaborations with Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto, Terre Thaemlitz, and others. Aus den sieben Tagen features five pieces from Stockhausen's collection of 15 text compositions, composed in May 1968 in reaction to a personal crisis. Stockhausen characterized the pieces as "intuitive music" -- music primarily played by intuition rather than by the intellect of the performer(s), without a single defined note. zeitkratzer and Keiji Haino demonstrate beyond any doubt that they know how to use this free interpretive space. zeitkratzer, directed by Reinhold Friedl: Frank Gratkowski, clarinet; Hild Sofie Tafjord, French horn; Hilary Jeffery, trombone; Reinhold Friedl, piano; Maurice de Martin, drums and percussion; Marc Weiser, acoustic noise; Burkhard Schlothauer, violin; Anton Lukoszevieze, violoncello; Ulrich Phillipp, double bass.
