Rotbauchunken & Frösche: Séries sonores 37

Wolfgang von Schweinitz

“Immediately after my mother’s and father’s death I went four months on holiday to rest in the artists’ house Schloss Wiepersdorf. After the brutal break it was very helpful for me to start with something radically new. The frogs were there with their springtime hormones, and with them even these red-spotted toads which are almost extinct around here. So what could be more obvious than to walk to the bog on the first evening of May, together with my young colleague Hartmut Dorschner and his two excellent microphones, and capture — as stereophonically as possible — about 74 minutes of this complex and minimalistic music.”
