LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Among other things, Lucio Capece, Axel Dörner, and Robin Hayward are exponents of what one might, for ease of use, call the Berlin style of improvisation, an approach to real-time music creation characterized by its emphasis on silence, ambient noise, and extended technique. Dörner (trumpet) and Hayward (tuba) have been key figures in the Berlin improv scene since the late '90s. Capece (soprano sax, bass clarinet) joined them in 2004 upon relocating from his native Argentina, and the trio took the name of Kammerlärm (chambernoise). Together the three men create a non-narrative music that evinces a strict reserve with respect to 'self-expression,' an acute awareness of the materiality of their instruments, a sustained exploration of the possibilities of instrumental playing. Their first full-length release as a trio is culled from two recording sessions at Dörner's home in 2005. It is an intensely disciplined music. Within its spaces, gestures, and silences, unfolds a finely textured sound-world that rewards deep, repeated listening."
