PERCUSSION / VOICE
(confront collectors series ccs 81)
Christian Wolfarth : percussion
Jason Kahn : voice
Recorded February 7th 2016 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Working together since 2004 in a trio with Günter Müller, the duo project of Christian Wolfarth and Jason Kahn signals a return to their collaboration – this time with Jason Kahn singing and not on electronics. Though both musicians use acoustic sound sources, together their music might seem electronic. Wolfarth's cymbal work often resembles a multitude of oscillators buzzing in and out of phase and Kahn's use of the voice could be mistaken for white noise or a failing distortion pedal. The duo is not just about sound but a direct approach to listening, immersive yet also raw and direct, the music unfolding in realtime, structure and flow changing with each breath and stroke of a cymbal.
