About

To unfold a seemingly simple form into an intricate structure: the fan epitomizes the transformation from simple to complex. Transitions from clearly defined forms to figures of great heterogeneity are fundamentally inscribed into the two compositions on this CD. In Caspar Johannes Walter's Metrische Dissonanzen the solo percussionist and the ensemble transform harmonic relations into rhythmic processes, fanning out a vast sound universe. And in Schwankende Zeit ('Swaying Time') Isabel Mundry relates two adaptions of pieces by Louis Couperin to three new pieces of hers and thus creates with numerous musical and extramusical stimuli a network of references and allusions, of nearness and remoteness.

The cover of the CD booklet shows Gerhard Richter's 'Abstraktes Bild' from 1962, commenting in an artistic manner on the thematic concentration of the programme from the highlights of the 'Musikfabrik im WDR' series. Richter, one of the most important living German artists, has been a member of the board of trustees of the Ensemble Musikfabrik since 2009.
