Jürg Frey’s Buch der Räume und Zeiten (Book of Spaces and Times) is written for two players who choose from 23 different parts for a performance. This yields 253 possible combinations for the piece.
In December of 2016, I revisited this score and thought it would be interesting to have each part recorded, making a complete recording of the work a possibility. With a blessing from Jürg, the agreement of David McIntire (Irritable Hedgehog), and the cooperation of artists from the United States, Chile, England, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Germany, we began work on the project in March of 2017.
This project may take a few years to reach completion, but we will publish new recording combinations as they come in. It is difficult to imagine what the final product will be like, but I am excited to see the results.
Announcements will be made on Facebook and through our newsletter if you would like to keep track of the project developments. For now, enjoy what we have available and know that much, much more is on the way.
