HEYN, VOLKER - SIRENES (CD)


"Born in 1938, Volker Heyn is an "outsider", or perhaps an "unloved insider", an avant-gardist when it comes to experimental music, reaching beyond the trends of his generation of ťNew SimplicityŤ, ťNeo-RomanticismŤ, ťNew ComplexityŤ and so forth. In 1960 he left Europe to spend more than ten years in Australia where he joined a travelling theatre company, made ends meet by singing in nightclubs and working the night shift in a metal works. Heyn's music is the mise en scčne of an acoustic condition, whose manifold reflections perpetually interlock and shatter, like a box of mirrors. It investigates a process, which in itself is inaccessible and cannot be reproduced on paper."
