Description

In 1981/1982 the French composer Luc Ferrari produced the radio play “Jetzt – oder wahrscheinlich ist dies mein Alltag, in der Verwirrung der Orte und der Augenblicke” [“NOW – or Probably This Is My Everyday Life in the Confusion of Places and Moments”] with the Hessischer Rundfunk.

Like other earlier radio plays of Ferrari, “JETZT” as “radio play on the radio play” is a special case between music, radiophonic art and narrative radio play. The dialogues between Luc Ferrari and his wife Brunhild Ferrari, between German and French, between the places of origin of the used recordings as well as the different process stages of the radio play are unique and characteristic. Ferrari recorded everything live on tape – his arrival at the airport of Frankfurt, the setting up of the microphone, the conversations about how to proceed and about the content of the radio play – and interwove everything with recordings of the musical quartet Vivant Quartet de Narbonne. The autobiographical traces are artistically, playfully and cleverly interspersed with profound philosophical questions.

In the series ZKM milestones, Ferrari’s radio play “JETZT” is presented unabridged on CD for the first time. The accompanying CD of materials includes audio documents that shed light on his artistic work in very different ways: The excerpts from a lecture by Luc Ferrari on his view of the radio play constitute a presentation resembling a radio play. “Ferrari (r)écouté”, a competition organized by the ZKM in cooperation with hr2-kultur, presents new works based on the “JETZT” materials by Tiziana Bertoncini, Antje Vo­winckel, Frank Niehusmann, David Fenech, and Neele Hülcker.

“An innovative survey of moments of life which invites the listener to stay: Life is ‘now’, we are living now.”
(Declaration of the jury for the German Record Critics' Award – Quaterly List of Best Recordings 2/2012: Nikolaus Gatter / Heinz Zietsch)

Edition ZKM
In the edition ZKM electronic, the ZKM | Institut für Musik und Akustik (IMA) currently releases productions on the label WERGO which are based on electronic media and which, in the broadest sense, can be described as electro-acoustic compositions. Guest artists from all over the world are invited to work in the music studios to realize specific projects. The productions, ranging from digital synthesis and algorithmic composition to the integration of live electronics, from radio art to sound installation, encompass a broad spectrum of that locus where digital technology stimulates musical fantasy. More information on the ZKM you can find here. The productions highlight current works of contemporary composers and musicians which are characterized by technological and aesthetic developments, while sometimes crossing the lines of the auditory by means of visualizations or multimedia concepts. Even in the field of audio productions, new territory is entered with 5.1 panoramas, for example, in order to depict the often three-dimensional compositions in an adequate manner. The aim is to spread the electro-acoustic music and sustain its release. Starting in 2011, the label ZKM milestones releases selected works of contemporary music which, with regard to aesthetics, play a special role in recent music history and the academic examination and publication of which contribute to a better understanding of the cultural landscape.
