Aquaserge - The Possibility of a New Work for Aquaserge [CD]
Cat. no: MTM46
Release Date: 15 Oct 2021
One of the most inventive avant-rock bands around, Aquaserge have expanded their scope as they tackle the field of 20th century contemporary classical music , paying tribute to four major figures, Giacinto Scelsi, Gyorgy Ligeti, Edgar Varese and Morton Feldman.
Drawing inspiration from Scelsi’s exploration of timbres and oscillations, Ligeti’s moving clusters, Varese’s melodic cubism and Feldman-type graphic scores, Aquaserge have created pieces for a hybrid, semi-classical and semi-rock expanded 9-piece line-up.
The band’s original compositions are completed by interpretations of three rare songs written by Edgar Varese (on a poem by Verlaine) and Morton Feldman (on a Rilke text), which remind us of Aquaserge’s taste for melodies.
Aquaserge have been a subterranean driving force in the international music scene, collaborating with the likes of Tame Impala, Stereolab, Acid Mothers Temple, Aksak Maboul and more. Aquaserge are equally admired for the creativity of their compositions and for their powerful and exciting concerts.
