Genieß das Rauschen
The basis of this "Hörfilm" is contemporary European chamber music influenced by non-European music and onomatopoetic fantasy language. Inspirations for Hippler's compositions are diverse, like the "cut up" method in literature (as created by W.S. Borroughs) for Viaggio I-III or the incorporation of associative collage techniques of early experimental film makers like René Clair. Performers are Christina Dominik, oboe and English horn; Philip Melcher, cello; Martin Buschmann, steel drum and saxophone; Apolonia Lobo, didjeridu; and Hippler on trumpet, piano and voice.
The Dietmar Hippler Ensemble - Helmut "Joe" Sachse, guitar; Jean-Christophe Mastnak, horn; Rainald Schückens, bass clarinet; Michael Jüllich, percussion; and composer/performer Hippler, trumpet and grand piano - in an outstanding recent release (imported from Germany) in which the composer attempts to "unify avant-garde composition and improvised music within what he calls a 'contmeporary European aesthetic'...Those of us who listen to music, not categories, will appreciate Zeitsprünge's invention and ambition."
