Plainsound Glissando Modulation: Raga in just intonation for violin and double bass
, Helge Slaato, violin, Frank Reinecke, double bass (NEOS, 2008).
"Like a sleepwalker, he [von Schweinitz] prods around in (sonic) space with delight, finding what he needs in these contorted sound worlds of computer-supported genesis of audible material. And with his latest compositions he now stands before the open portal of a realm in which encounters with the infinite are certain. The door is no longer ajar but agape." —Helmut Rohm
Back in 1988, while riffling through the contemporary classical racks on the 2nd floor of Tower Records, I happened upon Wolfgang von Schweinitz's Mass
, which I knew nothing about. When I got back to my loft, I sat and listened and was immediately struck by this oh-so-striking work. "Holy crap!" I remember thinking.
