Norbert Stammberger produced oversized graphic scores that call for virtuoso reactions. The compositions named <re-recordings> move between composition and improvisation using new ways of playing. Complex drum impulses are interwoven with electronically distorted guitars and also electronically modulated saxophones. The acoustic character sounds of vibraphone, marimba and piano seem to emerge from the overwhelming thunderstorm of sound.
There are no more topics, the immediate interpretation of what is currently happening applies. The parameters of counterpoint are expanded by sounds, moods and density of texture. - DBL BTR 4TET Tribal Error (CD) Studio Berlin 2021
