Weighter Recordings: Hennies - Duets for Solo Snare Drum

Post by nhennies »

Hi all,

Today I am officially announcing the founding of a new label, Weighter Recordings and the inaugural release which will be available on September 1st.

"Duets for Solo Snare Drum" features three works for snare drum by John Cage, Peter Ablinger and myself and each piece is a "duet" with a different non-perfomative element:

Cage - silence
Ablinger - noise
Hennies - tones

All info and a sound clip can be found here:

http://www.weighterrecordings.com/

All releases are professionally duplicated CDs in austere letterpressed packages by Middle Press/Ben Owen. Available on CD for $12 (ppd in North America) or as a digital download (mp3 of FLAC) for $7.

Coming later this year is a new solo percussion work by Tim Feeney called "Caroline" - details forthcoming.

Nice review of "Duets for Solo Snare Drum" today on Fluid Radio:

http://www.fluid-radio.co.uk/2013/08/nick-hennies/

"Three quite conceptual works, then, yet throughout something remains that is not concept: call it sound, or performing presence, or whatever, it is clearly perceptual and affective rather than conceptual in character, concept being the solo that is always heard as a duet. This is essential listening for anyone interested in thoughtful and compelling new music, and I’m excited to hear what Hennies’ new label Weighter Recordings has in store beyond this excellent debut release."
