Michael Barthel 
 "Uneins" Cassette 


19 new pieces on the topic of Exclamation Marks:
Some Bawlings, Poems, Statements and five Conversations + Duets with Ulrike Uhlig, a recording of a viola and my shacking hand on a table after playing the instrument. Transposition for flute and voice emulating the violin of the first minute of Feldman's piece, "Between Categories". One piece about a statement of Edmond Jabes: "What is at stake is the answer of being in the universe, a response that can only translate into a question".

I choose not to give the titles of some of the pieces, not the german ones nor the translations of it. To do so is pushing the idea of the whole release: I don't like exclamation marks.
