Hysteria . Kammerflimmer Kollektief
2004. cd . dl
Re-release of this long-deleted Kammerflimmer Kollektief classic feat. 15min+ of new studio recordings.
An assemblage of intriguing electro/acoustic elements. Incorporating samples, analog synths, and a plethora of stringed instruments (including an acoustic jazz ensemble), "Hysteria" taunts the fine line of control between abstraction and realism, with a beauty that's stunning at times.
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 eight albums in all sorts of line-ups. Live performances all over the world are realized as a trio (with Heike Aumüller and Johannes Frisch).
