Notes

Limited edition of 100 copies.

"Composed for and dedicated to Henri Pousseur’s friend Hans Zender for his 80th birthday, these compositions (registered live in late 2007) are in fact 36 Haïkus written by Pousseur himself, accompanied by his piano music, based on an ingenuous aleatoric score and played with great intensity by Sophie-Mayuko Vetter, daughter of the German composer. A work of moving beauty, highly sophisticated and deeply human at the same time. The deluxe box, covered with petal-like extra-matte white paper and silksceened in matt black , contains a black 33rpm high quality vinyl record, a 1 meter-long fold-out and diecut aleatoric score plus instructions, a 40-pages luxurious booklet with the Haikus in three languages, seven original prints of Japanese calligraphy on cotton paper, and the colophon (track-list) sheet, hand-numbered and signed by Mr. Pousseur."
