ROWE / DÖRNER / HAUTZINGER, KEITH / AXEL / FRANZ - A VIEW FROM THE WINDOW (CD)


"Trumpeters Axel Dörner and Franz Hautzinger transcend many of the aesthetic and geographical factions that have evolved over four decades of European free improv, contributing their gorgeous tones to a wide variety of contexts. On A View From The Window, they join forces with the intensely focused Keith Rowe, one of the scene's founding fathers, and explore the abstract limits of their respective palettes. A View From The Window was recorded in a single day in Vienna in November 2003 by Christoph Amann, superbly as always. Photojournalist Yuko Zama was in attendance for the sessions, and became drawn to the glimpse of sky visible through one of the studio's windows. She took dozens of pictures from different angles, and her fascination inspired Rowe to title the record after the Cardew quote, and to paint a more 'optimistic' version of one of her photos for the front cover. A View From The Window captures these three musicians paring their signature sounds down to their essences, with the occasional plaintive trumpet cry or subtle radio snippet emerging from the delicate intertwining."
