Info for Recurrents
For Martin Kohlstedt it is always about discourse, transformation and reflection. The first two albums composed by the german pianist – TAG and NACHT – were put into the hands of talented musicians to work their magic. Now the pieces on STROM and STRÖME will be given their extraordinary siblings.
Under the name RECURRENTS a collection of reworks of the original pieces will be released – song by song. The musicians involved, all of them companions of Martin Kohlstedt, could tap into a wealth of resource materials: The recordings for the original album with the Gewandhaus choir, the piano tracks and the electronic soundscapes and more were the contents of the treasure chest at their disposal.
Intuitively Martin Kohlstedt feels his way through this body of wood, felt hammers and steel strings. The young composer, who grew up in the forests of Thuringia, doesn’t just put on an anonymous fingerplay - he perpetually opens himself up with each and every moment, with every stroke of the keys. An attempt to create something close and personal - beyond sophisticated classics or artificial pathos. Kohlstedt isn’t reenacting a play, he’s holding a musical conversation with his instruments. At times he might even lose his self-control and get carried away. Particularly in a concert setting, one might take note of this kind of aggressive straightforwardness, perhaps making him seem vulnerable. If you were standing off to the side, you could even find it cheesy. Nevertheless, the argumentation between character and piece is so fierce, that you just can’t get around it. Consider yourself lucky under these circumstances - because that’s exactly what Martin Kohlstedt needs, this soundbox, his audience.
This exchange was captured within his two albums “Nacht“ (2014) and “Tag“ (2012) (Night and Day respectively), published by himself. Besides solo performances, he is part of the electronica bands Marbert Rocel and Karocel and also melodizes motion pictures.
This album contains no booklet.
