String Quartet no.2 'Company'
Vermont/Berlin Counterpoint (Olaf Muhlenhardt)
ArtistsClair-obscure saxophone quartet
In the last few years, it has become very popular in Berlin to play classical music in clubs. Starting off with 'Yellow Lounge', followed by 'RBB Classic Lounge' and 'Arte Lounge', clair-obscur was part of this movement.
Inspired and fascinated by this concept, we had the idea of recording a CD featuring contemporary music that would work in both environments: concert hall and club. Music that (maybe not even consciously) uses elements of club music like Drum&Bass or Lounge Music.
It is obvious why the four musicians from Berlin are called 'clair-obscur'. Clair-obscur, a painting technique from the Renaissance in which opposing light and dark tones are used to symbolise heavenly and earthly elements, is the visual equivalent of the sounds the quartet draw from their instruments: on the one hand, warm, intense and clear, and on the other harsh, aggressive and robust.
These two poles can also be found in the composition of the quartet: two female and 2 male musicians in one ensemble create a unique musical energy.
