2008 release. Composed by experimental German composer Jakob Ullmann. Phillip Thimm (cello); Ensemble: Ensemble Für Experimentelle Musik 2006; Isabelle Fontius (flute); Leif Bergerhoff (saxophone); Tobias Keck (viola); Susanne Friedrich, Judith Geier-Leisch, Daniela Hornung, Ida Maria Kastner, Anja Kienborn, Annegret Kornmann, Christina Reis, Corinna Schmid (voice). The composer states: "Voice, Books And FIRE is the result of my reflections about the relationships between music and language: language as sound and language as text, the numerous relationships between texts of different cultural and religious traditions, between the work of the human spirit in the present and in the past, and the questions arising from the problem of understanding these different traditions, languages and texts and representing them in a present, which has lost knowledge about substantial parts, even of its own tradition and history." Hisses, hushed whispers and open air drone produce a lonely, compelling tension.
