"If, as John Ruskin said, architecture is frozen music, perhaps Solodrumming insinuates music as liquid architecture. The space (Martin-Gropius-Bau) in which these sounds originated influences their aural characteristics; clarity of articulation/gesture, exquisite resonance, delay, decay, ambiance, added to Hauser's crisp technique, his formal concerns, his zen conception, create new definitions of those areas we occupy in mind and body." Art Lange
All compositions [...] / SUISA, published by Tuhtah Publishing / SUISA.
Recorded in the glass-roofed court of the Martin-Gropius-Bau (Berlin) during the nights of April 4-7, 1985. No electronic effects or overdubs were used on this 2-track digital recording.
