Recent CD Releases
There are two interesting online reviews of the Berlin series of CDs.
John Eyles in ‘All About Jazz’ here
And Thomas Millroth at ‘Sound of Music’ here (in Swedish)
We’ve had a lot of enquiries recently from people who don’t use CDs, and who want to buy downloads. We intend to make downloads of all of our discs available, but it’s taking a long time to set this up. For all those who can’t wait, please email email@example.com and we will send out audio files of any Another Timbre disc (either flac or mp3) Downloads cost £5 per disc, or £10 for a double CD.
Composer Martin Iddon, whose first CD ‘pneuma’ was released on Another Timbre early in 2014, has won a British Composer’s Award in the chamber music category for his string trio ‘Danäe’, which featured on the CD. For a limited period we have posted the entire piece on soundcloud, and you can listen to it here
Two other Another Timbre CDs appeared in the top 50 discs of the year in The Wire’s review of 2014 - Magnus Granberg’s group Skogen playing his composition ‘Despairs Had Governed Me Too Long’, and Laurence Crane’s ‘Chamber Works 1993-2007’ performed by Apartment House.
There will be a new CD from Magnus Granberg early in 2015.
News: Downloads and Accolades
Also the new Morton Feldman double CD got 5-star reviews in The Guardian and The Independent. You can read the Guardian review here
The reviews prompted a flood of sales, and this one will sell out at some point next year, so if you want a copy, don’t leave it too long.
1. The Mobiles Project
The Mobiles Project is inspired by the modular sculptures of Alexander Calder, and facilitates the production of similarly modular, open-formed musical works.
The project was co-ordinated by Samuel Rodgers, Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga and Johnny Chang, each of whom asked other musicians to produce tracks for their Mobiles.
Contributing musicians include Peter Ablinger, Cremaster, Anne Guthrie, Rie Nakajima, Nate Woolley, Catherine Lamb and Xavier Charles.

2. Variations 2 (after Christoph Schiller)
‘Variations 2’ will grow to become a set of original hour-long collaborative pieces made by chains of musicians working with the brilliant structure developed by Christoph Schiller on his recent CD ‘Variations’.
You can listen to the pieces as they grow and follow the music as it is passed from musician to musician in a kind of relay.
Musicians taking part in the Variations 2 project include Angharad Davies, Magnus Granberg, Andrea Neumann, Erik Carlsson, Dafne Vicente-Sandoval, d’incise and Marjolaine Charbin.
3. Sarah Hughes Graphic Score Project
We sent a copy of ‘Architectural Model Making’, a graphic score by Sarah Hughes, to a variety of musicians and asked them to produce realisations of the piece. Nine realisations are now up online, and you can listen to them and read an interview with Sarah about her work here
