WERNER DAFELDECKER / AXEL DÖRNER / SVEN-AKE JOHANSSON

Des Kreis Des Gegenstandes

(Monotype - MONO008) LP $16.50

Dörner’s unique style of trumpet playing is based in part on unusual, self-invented techniques. Dafeldecker’s projects are inspired and deduced by outside influences such as architecture, physics, photography and film. Longtime sound and structure studies and the formulation of distinct articulations are in the center of his work as a composer and musician, parallel to technological developments connected with with electronic formats. Johansson is a composer, musician, poet and visual artist, writer and legendary protagonist within the European free improv.

Eis 9

(Grob) Used CD $5.00

Acoustic-meets-electronic-meets-abstract sound by multi-instrumentalist Dafeldecker and electronic musician Hegenbart, who emphasize sound over energy and introspection over panache. Soft hits on a gong, a few notes of prepared guitar, minimal percussion, non-intrusive electronic treatments, and carefully selected samples all come together in the duo’s post-minimal free improv from 2001.
