Felix Kubin and Ensemble Integrales - Echohaus
‘Echohaus’ is a collaboration with contemporary chamber group Ensemble Integrales. The concept is this; Kubin worked with composer Burkhard Friedrich (himself a former member of the Ensemble Integrales) to give the collaborating group of musicians simple graphic scores or basic descriptions of the compositions, then each musician was placed in a separate room with each room used as a natural echo chamber. The musicians played simultaneously, but could not hear each other – Kubin controlled the mix from another room and the album was recorded in one take without overdubs. The result is a shockingly original collection of haunted creaks, Ligeti-patented sharp strong drones, deep, echoing percussion and bubbling electronics. Also available on vinyl!
