The Kammerflimmer Kollektief is playing for the first time at the “Art’s Birthday” songs from their new album “There are actions which we neglected and which will never come to call us”, which will be published in spring 2018, as well as excerpts from the radio drama on the two Russian Revolutions of 1917 “Nie mehr warten”, which was recently produced for SWR radio drama.
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 ten albums in all sorts of line ups. Live performances all over the world are realized as a trio with Heike Aumüller and Johannes Frisch.
The Kammerflimmer Kollektief is emotive and impassioned. It is also as lucid and precise as those moods which Robert Musil (who is above suspicion of a being a romanticist) called “daylight mysticism”. The lyrics and the music want to be heard, they want to be explored, even suffered. Sound builds songs which are made of sounds, and yet they’ re no longer songs
