Friedl: Kore (Live)

Reinhold Friedl and his ensemble Zeitkratzer perform „Kore“, a hommage to the French-Greek composer Iannis Xenakis. “Kore” is a natural advancement of Reinhold Friedl’s earlier composition “Xenakis [a]live!” (released 2007 on Asphodel) - a homage to the French-Greek composer Iannis Xenakis. The piece is conceived for nine amplified instruments demonstrating Zeitkratzer's well established tradition of instrumental amplification (e.g. the early collaborations with Zbigniew Karkowski or Merzbow and more recently with William Bennett of Whitehouse) where playing amplified does not only mean making things louder, it also entails having a microscopic view of sound in which acoustic microsounds appear in a completely new context. The references to seminal Xenakis’ tape compositions like “Persepolis” or “La Legende d’Er” are audible in the materials and textures, densities and sound masses performed by Zeitkratzer, taking it to new areas of physical qualities that create a huge sonic architecture. Recorded live January 2013 during Klub Katarakt festival in Hamburg, “Kore” adds a stunning new chapter to Zeitkratzer’s audacious catalogue and a new sort of intensities to contemporary chamber music.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
