Tribute to John Cage
Equipped with a modular synthesizer, a guitar and electronics Patrick Pulsinger and Christian Fennesz approach the master of the treatment of silence, John Cage. The piece on this album, which was recorded live at Wiener Konzerthaus, was inspired by the underlying attitude of Cage’s String Quartet in Four Parts. Upon invitation by the WIEN MODERN festival the two legendary electronic music protagonists tackled the composer’s early string quartet, took it apart and adapted it for two players, always bearing in mind the original instrumentation. Rhythmic structures and the play with silence, motifs and repetitions were treated like quotations having undergone a lengthy transmission process, and were then put together and made into an intriguingly contemporary model. The modular synthesizer, wholly analogue and musically flexible, took its bearings from the viola and violoncello. The two violins were represented by Fennesz’s e-guitar, which is coupled with electronics to generate an intense world of sound. With tiny phrases, microtonal elements and complex sounds Pulsinger / Fennesz create an intense musical experience that permits an interplay between active listening and passive absorption, stimulating the listener’s imagination in wondrous ways.

Recommendation
All you need is air
A songbird that stops singing must die. Georges Aperghis demands a similar degree of self-sacrifice of the performer of his 14 Récitations: 
Patrick Pulsinger assembles a quartet to embark on a musical reflection on Morton Feldman at the WIEN MODERN festival. A perfect col legno production! 
The exceptional violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja not only impresses audiences and critics – she also inspires eminent composers like Kühr, Resch & Zykan.
