This is the debut album from composer/sound artist Emanuele de Raymondi on New York City label ZeroKilled Music. On this album, De Raymondi interprets the evocative improvisations by Turkish virtuoso clarinetist Oguz Buyukberber through mesmerizing electronic manipulations. The only sound source of the 10 tracks that make up the album is Buyukberber's clarinet: the improvisation sessions were recorded by De Raymondi in Berlin in a unique architectural space, with a natural reverberation time of 10 seconds -- no digital effects or additional instruments were used during the composition. The sound of Buyukberber's clarinet is transformed and stratified by the experimental composer, resulting in a style that cohesively combines electronica, jazz, ambient and minimalism. With Buyukberber Variations, De Raymondi explores the relationship between sound, space and perception, pointing to new sonic directions that establish him as a brilliant new voice in contemporary music.
