2011 release. TablesAreTurned is a project by Bernhard Lang and Alter Ego with Philip Jeck for turntables and amplified ensemble, based on the song by Amon Düül 2. TablesAreTurned is the first collaboration between one of the most significant Austrian composers of today, Bernhard Lang and prominent English turntablist Philip Jeck. There is no doubt that mutual interested in loop technique, led to the musical collaboration, connecting the worlds of academic philosophy with underground aesthetic. Unlike his previous works, where Lang was able to transform an ensemble into a big loop generator (his series of "Differenz / Wiederholung" pieces, accomplished with magnum opus opera, monumental Das Theater der Wiederholungen), here he turns the ensemble into cellular automata, generating counterpoint based on the rest of the loops. On the other side, Jeck offers a dozen of lo-fi locked grooves, making the perfect extended interludes between powerful ensemble episodes. Premiered at Berlinerfestspiele, but also performed at Wien Modern and Huddersfield Contamporary Music Festival, the piece is now available for the first time as a limited double LP. Bernhard Lang - composition; Philip Jeck - turntables; Alter Ego: Manuel Zurria - flutes; Paolo Ravaglia - clarinets; Aldo Campagniari - violin; Francesco Dillon - violoncello; Oscar Pizzo - keyboards; Eugenio Vatta - sound projection.
