Nichtsattrappen 0'04''
A new piece by Steffen Krebber for 9 musicians and electronics.

The series "Nichtsatrappen" by Steffen Krebber is music on music. The already written, thus in the word of Levi-Strauss the ‘cooked’ can always be seen again as raw, discovered as new, untreated. For one Nichtsattrappen take on the several voiced yodelling of pygmies in Gabon. Elsewhere they refer to the music of an ethnic group in Papua New Guinea, in which the self directed way of performing generates a particular inwardness of sound. Giacinto SceIsi is the creative director of microtonal frescoes of a sound; James Tenney gave excitement to minimalist rather physical ideas. Moreover one listens through the music of flying and crawling animals.

De Grands Z
De Grands Z (Large Zs) by Jean-Christophe Feldandler is another work commissioned for the ]h[iatus ensemble. The work of this composer is emblematic of an opening to current trends in music, drawing its sources from renowned works from Western culture (Obscurities for a string quartet and narrator,1998) as well as American crime fiction and free jazz (Snafu, for 4 percussionists, a drumer and trombone player, 2000) and even traditional Japanese music (The Right paths for 4 percussionistes, 2004) or in harmonic music (Enlargement of Sky for an electronic ensemble, 2001). The sonic world of Jean-Christophe Feldhandler is extraordinarily rich, mixing atmospheres and intertwining worlds through the juxtapositioning of diverse instruments such as a piano and a steel drum or a melodica, an electric guitar and plastic bottles (From a light, for 4 percussionists, 1999), a musical saw, a Hammond organ, a jew’s harp, a computer and a drum, etc (Snafu, ibid.), as if superiority of instruments or of types of music didn’t exist, following the lessons of John Cage for whom « the shells of Australia are as musical as violins ». The desire for music is full of affection for the various forms that music can take especially as so many channels have developed such as recordings, live concerts, but also new methods of communication that enhance our relationship to so many types of music and sound and so many vibrant expressions and vibrating objects. This composer’s music is both joyful and thoughtful, in a two way movement from jubilation to concentration, sometimes searching sometimes defending, initiating and translating.
