SCHUBERT, ALEXANDER - PLAYS SINEBAG (CD)


"Sinebag is the more pop orientated side project of Alexander Schubert. At this point he focuses mostly on composing contemporary multimedia works for ensemble, electronics and video. Schubert has also played frequently in different improvised contexts - ranging from free jazz to conceptual improv. While these poles and the harmonic sinebag project used to be really different fields of work, they started to merge together more and more - now being rather different aspects of a similar approach on music. As working on this album took approximately three years, the pop elements were heavily influenced by the other fields of composition and improvisation. That being said, there are still concepts continued from the old albums: Most obvious are the still present folk guitar elements and the use of nature field-recordings and different forms of non-tonal noises. While the new works explore ideas in greater length and complexity the underlining aesthetic is still comparable. On a micro-level though, fundamental differences occur: the speed and density and aggressiveness, which evolve from calm origins, is the most remarkable change in the current pieces." (label info)
