Eclerectic Attracta

SR 433CD SR 433CD

Surrounded by Quatuor Tana, the unpredictable Baudouin De Jaer presents four new pieces that push the boundaries of contemporary composition. Composer and violinist Baudouin De Jaer studied composition with Philippe Boesmans, Henri Pousseur, Frederic Rzewski and with Bruce Mather at McGill University in Montréal. His works have been performed by the following ensembles: Synonymes, Besides, Arditti, Quadro, Stream, Ear Unit, Musiques Nouvelles, Orchestre De Mulhouse, National Korean Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique De Liège, Timf Seoul Ensemble, Korean Project, Ensemble 21, and Ensemble 88. In 2010, Baudouin De Jaer was awarded a prize from the National Gugak Center for his Gayageum compositions. In 2011, he resolved the enigmatic music system of Swiss artist Adolf Wölfli and released a CD called The Heavenly Ladder on Sub Rosa (SR 312CD). Since 2011, Quatuor Tana has been the only European ensemble to be playing on electronic equipment with the Airturn Electronic Scoring System, which makes them an ideal partner for research neither calculated nor premeditated. Quatuor Tana's singularity rests on its undeniably unique and fiercely contemporary repertoire. Its musicians impose, in a single voice, four wills and four energies that, while attached to the quartet tradition, have firmly decided to expand the framework and find individual expression in contemporary creations. Their insatiable music curiosity pushes them to explore the multiple facets, styles and riches of scores created by living composers. Quatuor Tana has performed in major halls and festivals around the world. Eclerectic Attracta comes as a six-page digipak CD and comes with a 16-page booklet.
