SCHAEFER, JANNICK: Extended Play (Triptych for child survivors of war and conflict)
3 pieces created for an installation at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in 2007 for 9 record players. Each plays a specially cut LP containing one sparse sequence of tones taken from a Polish tune (for reasons explained on the cover) on Cello, Piano and Violin respectively, which are played back simultaneously at 33, 45, 78 rpm on the 9 record players, the combinations never repeating. The results are spare and rich (not unlike some Feldman; the tones just hang there). Two further tracks offer a layering of all the parts into something more dense and conclude with an old recording of the source song montaged with 40's radio broadcast material. An interesting project nicely realised.
