The Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin made herself well-known by her soundtracks for experimental and silent films or her works for drama and dance theater. This CD has been produced at the ZKM (Center for Art and Media Technology Karlsruhe).
"Unceremonious Processions" is something like "live studio music". Kats-Chernin’s 15 short pieces could have been the music for a film that was never made. The set would be an abandoned theater; the ruined technical equipment would become the props, strewn about the stage. Many traces can be heard in this music, those of Shostakovitch and Prokofiev, or of American Minimal music. There are also points of contact with House and Ambient music despite the models of nostalgic dance music that lend form to many of the pieces. But "Unceremonious Processions" does not appeal to the emotions of the listener, it is itself emotion - so tangible that it easily lingers on in one’s memory.
