INSUB. is set to release a new album from a trio comprised of Carl Ludwig Hübsch, Pierre-Yves Martel, and Philip Zoubek. The album is entitled Otherwise and features a variety of instruments including the viola da gamba, piano, and tuba. It was recorded last November in Cologne at LOFT. The album officially comes out on October 2nd but you can stream two tracks from the album above via the label's Bandcamp page. You can also pre-order the digital and physical album here.
Another Timbre has released its latest batch of albums. The first album is from a trio comprised of Cyril Bondi, Pierre-Yves Martel, and Christoph Schiller. Their album is entitled tse and was recorded at the INSUB. studio in Switzerland. The recording session marked the first time that the three musicians had played together. You can read an interview with Pierre-Yves Martel here.
The second new album comes from Mark Knoop and Philip Thomas. The two play John Cage's Two2, a piece composed in 1989 for two pianos. The composition contains 36 sections which contain five measures each. Pianists are allowed to play a measure at their own tempo, but the two can not continue to the following measure until both have completed a measure. The album was recorded in 2017 in Huddersfield. You can read an interview with Philip Thomas here.
The third album comes from Magnus Granberg and is entitled Es schwindelt mir, es brennt mein Eingeweide. The title translates literally to I’m struck by vertigo, my bowels are burning. Granberg's composition is performed by an ensemble that includes himself, Cyril Bondi, Anna-Kaisa Meklin, Anna Lindal, d'incise, and Christoph Schiller. The piece was recorded during a residency that the ensemble had in Geneva last fall. You can read an interview with Granberg here.
