About

In the winter of 2012/13, the Haus der Kunst in Munich - one of Europe’s most important museums for contemporary art - hosted the exhibition ‘ECM - A Cultural Archaeology’. The goal of curators Okwui Enwezor and Markus Müller was to show the range of the label’s artistic endeavours in music, graphic art, and photography and its creative interchanges with film, theatre and literature. For this exhibition, Manfred Eicher and Steve Lake created this six-CD box-set accentuating directions in ECM’s rich musical history.

Many themes and streams are touched upon here including the range of composition in the New Series, music for and from films, imaginative historical reconstructions, transcultural music, ambient minimalism, and jazz and improvisation of many hues, in a collection with a playing time of more than seven hours.
