About:

Since 2013 I have been developing the series Konstruktion.
On this CD I have included three solo works, "Konstruktion#1", "Konstruktion#2" and "Sah", for each of which I had developed 3 different sound assemblages.
The compositions are structured so that they could evolve over the years. They varied musical themes anew in each period and live version, thereby continually illuminating different views of the overarching abstract theme.
Each stage of development, from the first performance to the late versions, had its own characteristics. This CD features the solos and sound assemblages Konstruktion#1, Konstruktion#2 and Sah in their latest versions.



More information about the series and the instruments:
https://annettekrebs.eu/konstruktionen/k-e.html

 



The solo-label GRAPHIT exists since 2021.

Thereby I was inspired by the idea of a painter's canvas, on which works can be presented and published directly, analog, uncompromising, concentrated and without the need to outsource essential production processes.

Graphite is thus an audio canvas on which I can publish music as a physical object directly and without compromise. The music and the design of the graphics form a unity.
The covers and CDs are designed to reflect the expression of the music and to document underlying instruments.
