The four works brought together on this CD, the result of the first 25 years activity of the Heinrich Strobel Foundation and the EXPERIMENTALSTUDIO in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, founded in 1971, document different aspects of work with live electronics. The spectrum in which the technical development is reflected in this field extends from the playing of a pre-produced recording and initial attempts with delays to complex forms of the transformation of sound and its projection in space, and of space simulation. Cristóbal Halffter's Noche pasiva del sentido (1970/'71) is performed by Hélène Fauchère, soprano, and ENSEMBLE EXPERIMENTAL conducted by Detlef Heusinger, with sound direction by Thomas Hummel and Dominik Kleinknecht. Brian Ferneyhough's Mnemosyne, for bass flute and tape (1986) is performed by Martin Fahlenbock, bass flute, with mixing by Reinhold Braig and sound direction by Braig and Simon Spillner. André Richard's Glidif. a sonar e cantar à Luigi Nono in memoriam (1991) is performed by Collegium Novum Zürich (Elmar Schmid, bass clarinet and contrabass clarinet; Johannes Nied, double bass; and Käthi Steuri, double bass) conducted by Detlef Heusinger, with sound direction by Thomas Hummel, André Richard, and Joachim Haas. Heusinger's Abraum II, for piano trio and live electronics (1995) is performed by Collegium Novum Zürich (Urs Walker, violin; Imke Frank, cello; and Simone Keller, piano), with with sound direction by Thomas Hummel, André Richard, and Joachim Haas.
