"As a jazz guitarist with a background in architecture, Matthias Ockert gets ideas for his works from the art of interior design, transferring spatial structures to music. A student of Wolfgang Rihm and Hanspeter Kyburz, Ockert combines a distorted electric guitar with flute and violin, and places succinctly rhythmic passages next to synthetic sound surfaces. On this portrait from Wergo, Ockert's music combines contemporary ensemble music, jazz music and electronic composition. The majority of the works released here are new productions recorded at the Centre for Art and Media Technology (ZKM) in Karlsruhe and are world première recordings." Performed by: Yannick Wirner (piano), Edicson Ruiz (double bass), Ensemble Modern, Schola Heidelberg, Ensemble Aisthesis, Manuel Nawri, Walter Nussbaum.
