Peter Ablinger - Regenstücke Vol. 2
Regenstücke Vol. 1 dealt with rain aesthetic in pure instrumental form, but on Vol. 2 Austrian composer Peter Ablinger´s fascination with field recordings, extends to involving various ensembles and orchestra setups.
“What sounds more torrential – the instrumental sprinkle of a handful of musicians, or the heavens themselves opening? Ablinger keeps the perspective shifting, the instrumental droplets swelling into sound clouds that on occasion flood the actual rain.” (The Wire)
