Klaus Lang - Sei-Jaku for String Quartet

From its sparse, enigmatic beginning to its barely discernable conclusion almost 40 minutes later, Klaus Lang’s Sei-Jaku for string quartet seems less like a work of music than an ambient experience, and less like an abstract structure to be analyzed than a philosophical meditation on the smallest particles of sound. Listeners are encouraged to play this disc at the softest possible volume, to re-create the drastically muted sound quality of the Arditti String Quartet’s live performance. But this piece was plainly intended to be heard at the threshold of audibility, so that its rough or grating features would be reduced to the most delicate clicks, faintest squeaks, and slightest scraping noises.
