Artist: LANG, BERNHARD
Title: Differenz/Wiederholung 2
Format: LP
Label: God
Country: Austria
Price: $25.00
"Bernhard Langs Differenz/Wiederholung 2 is a multi-media piece for amplified ensemble, three voices and video installation. While the music is filled with rocking-and-rolling, anti-grooving sound slaps, "scored free jazz", and crippled repetitions, three vocalists present texts (including rap) from Gilles Deleuze, William Burroughs and Christian Loidl, commenting on usual repetitive human habits and its nonsense. If Captain Beefhearts Trout Mask Replica (1969) is a milestone of avant-rock, than Differenz/Wiederholung 2 is the same for contemporary music. The ultimate 21st century agenda of repetitions is soon going to be broken." - God.

Artist: LANG, BERNHARD
Title: DW 16 / Songbook I
Format: LP
Label: God
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
2015 release. "God Records present a series of pieces by Bernhard Lang, Differenz/Wiederholung -- DW ("Difference/Repetition"). DW is an on-going cycle of Langs pieces, where the composer explores possibilities of loops and repetitions, which would become his compositional trademark. Songbook I is a piece where Lang takes highly-involved patterns from jazz and pop music and transforms them through "damaged beats". Lang on the compositions: "For many years, one of my main influences beside the work of Philip Jeck were the movies of Martin Arnold: they more or less became the trigger for the series of pieces called Difference/Repetition. For the development of the DW series, four conceptual components were essential: 1. The visual appearance of the repetition in the video/film; 2. Philosophy of repetition in Deleuze; 3. The use of loops in the improvised music, again by reference to video-couplings; 4. Exploration of musical materials of different origins in electro-acoustic environments." Personnel: Jenny Renate Wicke - mezzo-soprano; Trio Accanto: Yukiko Sugawara - piano; Marcus Weiss - saxophone; Christian Dierstein - percussion." - God.
