Notes and Editorial Reviews

This release features compositions by percussionist and composer Pierre Favre. He performs here with fellow percussionists Valeria Zangger, Chris Jaeger, and Markus Lauterburg. These musicians have worked on this repertoire for the better part of five years, and while they are written compositions, there is certainly room for improvisation, making them even more interesting. In his notes, Pierre Favre writes: “This group has become an organism with a specific and recognizable sound... The aim of it all is to create frictions, to open spaces in the listener’s feeling, to bring him to let go of his fear of leaving the ground and use his wings!” This release features compositions by percussionist and composer Pierre Favre.
