Text by Paweł Szroniak / Inexhaustable Editions "

"Gerard Lebik and Burkhard Beins create musical forms of minimalist idiom, which consist of isolated sound events as well as gradually revealing harmonies and resonances. Metallic sounds from a large heavy cymbal are amplified and blend with electronically generated sine waves of varying amplitude, unfolding in a continuous glissando. An Alphabet Of Fluctuation is the evidence of how both artists rethink their approach towards deep reduction. One can see here a great sensitivity in determining the means of expression and formal concepts.

The artists do not shape the pieces into dynamic structures with a linear course but strive to achieve a specific effect of micro-flickering of sound – an illusion of suspension of time. These recordings should be considered as an environment, involving the listener to intensify perceptual. activity. During their realization, an attempt was made to use the natural properties of space in the most nuanced way possible, treating the set of speakers as additional instruments. The experiments with sound directivity and density used here are aimed at creating specific acoustic machinery.

Polish saxophonist, improviser, composer and sound artist Gerard Lebik's (1980) music and radical sound works oscillate between improvised and composed forms. Using acoustic and electronic media, he focuses on such phenomena as time, space, and perception of sound waves. Founder and curator of Sanatorium Of Sound festival and platform for experimental and new music in Sokołowsko, Lebik has collaborated, recorded and performed with Phil Minton, Keith Rowe, Jérôme Noetinger, David Maranha, Lucio Capece and Ryoko Akama among many others.

Born in Lower Saxony, German composer, performer and percussionist Burkhard Beins (1964) has been living and working in Berlin since 1995. As a prominent figure of contemporary experimental music, he is known for his definitive use of percussion in combination with selected sound objects In addition, he works with live-electronics and analog synthesizers, and has conceived several sound installations. Alongside his solo and collaborative works, he is a constant member of ensembles such as Polwechsel, The Sealed Knot, Activity Center or Perlonex.
