Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Rich in tone colours and tonal language, bursting with energy and yet shaped in a subtle and sophisticated way: this is what constitutes the music of composer Ondrej Adámek displayed on his portrait CD and DVD of the Edition Zeitgenössische Musik.

Adámek, who grew up in Prague and currently lives in Berlin, developed an interest for the music and instruments of other cultures at an early stage. He seized his various stays in France, Africa, Spain, Japan, India, Italy and Germany to explore the specific musical and cultural phenomena of these respective places and let his impressions and experiences inspire his compositions. Bernd Künzig, author of the CD’s booklet, thus calls Adámek’s compositional style a sort of linguistic and musical “bricolage”: “Virtually his entire output is pervaded by hybrid forms in which the natural is confronted with the artificial and mechanical, rituals with abstraction, and conflicting languages (including musical languages) with each other, all for the purpose of producing his own distinctive blend.”

Language, especially its phonetic and noisy qualities, plays a key role in many of Adámek’s works. In the three choral pieces of the portrait CD "Polednice", "Körper und Seele" and "Kameny" the underlying languages are used both in a semantic sense and to create a rhythmical structure. Here Adámek draws special inspiration from the texts and poems of Icelandic artist Sjón, whom he met during his residency with the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin program.

Apart from the linguistic bricolage, Adámek continuously searches for new sounds which go beyond the possibilities of standard instruments. For his piece Körper und Seele he spent several years experimenting and developing the so-called Airmachine, an apparatus built of gloves, kazoos, claxon horns and fifes that functions in a purely technical way, but astoundingly generates noises that sound almost human. The DVD demonstrates in two videos the functionality and the tonal possibilities of the Airmachine, a second version of which has meanwhile been built.

The two "Japanese" pieces on the portrait CD, "Nôise" and "Karakuri – Poupée mécanique" draw their inspiration from elements of the traditional no theatre, the puppet theatre bunraku as well as from the sutras chanted by the monks in the temples of Kyoto, where Adámek spent several months at the Villa Kujoyama.

The interpreters, including the Ensemble intercontemporain, the SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart und the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, are nearly always supposed to exceed the boundaries of their own instruments or their : In the choral works the chorus not only has to sing, it must also generate sounds with whistles, kazoos, sirens and percussion instruments, whereas in "Dusty Rusty Hush" the orchestra itself turns into a huge machine, pounding, groaning, screeching and thus resurrecting the abandoned steel plant in Brandenburg that constitutes the inspirational starting point of this piece.
