Excellent reviews of Reciprocity by Nico Couck (ChampdAction/Recordings/3) and Dig Deep by Peter Jacquemyn (ChampdAction/Recordings/2)

"Couck brings tremendous technique to Reciprocity: the album really is as much about the composer’s instructions as it is about the musician’s interpretation, and the listener gains a real sense of a dynamic relationship between the two axes." Louise Gray (2014). Polansky et al.. Tempo, 68, pp 86-88.

 

"**** Waarschijnlijk zoals hij als beeldend kunstenaar door te hakken en te slijpen betekenis geeft aan een blok hout, doet hij dat op ‘Dig Deep’ als muzikant: indrukwekkend en stevig, maar evengoed menselijk en kwetsbaar." Koen Van Meel (2014), Kwadratuur.

 

 

 

New CD ! MONOLITH by Takao Hyakutome

“Perhaps our struggle to search for new music, as we do now, might seem totally nonsensical for advanced beings of higher dimensions. Idling in such thoughts, I can picture an unknown, mysterious and far more intelligent species having built a MONOLITH for their own reasons, and yet nobody knows when it was raised nor if it would ever move or vanish in the future, as in the SF novel 2001: A Space Odyssey by A.C. Clarke.”

 

 

 

And also, new demo CD with live recordings from the New Forum Project. Recorded in Berlin 2014, with work by Hikari Kiyama and Johannes Kreidler performed by ChampdAction.

With the support of the European Community, and in cooperation with Ensemble Orchstral Contemporain & Grame and Ensemble Mosaik.
