<p>Text becomes music, music becomes legible. There are two voices: That of the text and the other one, which whispers, susurrates, cooes, like a whitsun flamlet. And it is precisely this voice, which relates the substance of the text. Such evening beauty, so wraped up in reverb. Here we hear that the world has a drum kit where human beings have a heart. „They pelt the text with music and they shell the music with text so that written text suddenly receives an echo. Likewise, tonal matter seems to be organized in lines; the sounds receive a layout for the ear, a narrative nature and a lyrical texture.“</p>
<p>The Kammerflimmer Kollektief plays music, which should not be written down, for it would scorch the paper. The project, whose music meanders between precision and freedom, has been founded in 1996 by Thomas Weber. Up to now, the Kollektief has released six albums in all sorts of line ups. Live performances all over the world are realized as a trio (with Heike Aumüller and Johannes Frisch). A new mind-altering collection of songs by the name of „Wildling“ is just being prepared and will be released soon.</p>
