Austrian Music at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival -- article -- music by Furrer/Ablinger/K.Lang/Jakober/Larcher/Meier

 

 

PRESS:

"...Manuela Meier’s 2012 work 'cada' bristled with movement and impulse, throughout, the antiphonal exchanges between the two percussionists a delight to the senses. [...]

The composer treated us to a plethora of timbres and colours and what seemed to our “insectified” ears like a stunning range of dynamics, from the whisperings of wood against a smooth metal edge to the harsh complaints of friction-making textured metal surfaces [...].

It all had the feeling of some kind of inner reality, akin to the flowing of blood, impulsings of a nervous system or an intelligence network processing sensory responses. ...''

Peter Mechen, Middle C - Classical Music Reviews, Wellington, New Zealand, 02 June 2012. full review: http://middle-c.org/2012/06/stroma-percussionaction-in-small-but-compelling-doses/
