"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Cassiber 1982

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassiber

A very early concert of  the avant-garde group Cassiber, one of my very respectfull band from these 80s.
with Heiner Goebbels, keyboards,
Chris Cutler (from Henry Cow) on drums,
Alfred Harth on sax
& the amazing voice and devices of Christoph Anders.

"...Cassiber (1982/1992) managed to fuse materials and attitudes drawn from experimental rock, fringe jazz, punk, pop, plunderphonics, improvisation, close structure and musique concrete with an energetic and complex form of studio (and then concert) composition that was unique in its combination of diverse experimental approaches to form with a risky, emotional and expressive mode of execution..."

The Stryge & an official launch


Last year, during the windy & cold morning of the 22th of march 2014, the Stryge had been  part of the official launch of "The Worried Ones" first CD-box "Live at 64".
This official ceremony happened up in the north tower of Notre Dame de Paris and
mid-drown in the noisy sounds of the city, we could perceive a shy scream of satisfaction from the Stryge herself, who probably felt honoured to be part of the worried ones!
For obscure security reasons, no-ones, apart of the main actors, were invited for this event.

13 solo strings


The strings' music of Witold Lutoslawski is still dynamic, eloquent and opened to musical questions that the 20th century suggested.

Here are the astonishing "Preludes and Fugue for 13 Solo Strings"  (composed in 1972)
played by the Warsaw National Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra
conducted by Witold Lutoslawski himself
recorded at the Warsaw Autumn Festival in 1973
