INT049 - DIDI KERN



INT 049 | LP
DIDI KERN elliptical overtone study & field recordings

release date: july 26th, 2020

Didi Kern is not only known as an accurate and versatile drummer for Austrian heroes Bulbul and Fuckhead, he also built up a reputation for himself within the improvised and free jazz music scene performing with such great names as Peter Brötzmann, Ken Vandermark, Mats Gustafsson, Weasel Walter a.o. Meanwhile he’s regarded as one of the busiest drummers in the Viennese scene. Didi has established himself as a resourceful, energetic free improviser with a sharp sense of humour. 'Elliptical Overtone Study & Field Recordings' is released on Vinyl (incl. Download Voucher) by Interstellar Records. We've been collaborating with Didi for more than 12 years, with him becoming a good friend and advisor and resulting in the releases of Bulbultumido, Kern Quehenberger and of course Broken.Heart.Collector.)

What is it? A finger exercise? An acoustic journey? A fragmented masterpiece?
In any case it is a record, on which a graphic designer put the name DIDI KERN in large letters.
The 20 pieces on it are miniatures that guide us to the most varied places – as field recordings, percussive compositions and superpositions of both:
Up the grandfather`s creaking stairs, straight through a Mexican market, over a snoring fellow traveller, you can hear a drum dialogue with the rain. After a quick detour to New Orleans, a lamenting woman in the New York subway predicts the end of the world, a bee passes by, a dubious conductor comments on the trip and the composer puts an abrupt end to the journey.
Why elliptical? Because it isn´t a perfect circle but eventually ends where it began: down the grandfather`s stairs.
