Performed by Steffen Schleiermacher (piano, toy piano). Pieces by: Earle Brown: "Corroboree"; Mauricio Kagel: "Mimetics"; Henri Pousseur: "Caracteres"; Helmut Lachenmann: "Echo Andante"; Karlheinz Stockhausen: "Intervalle". "Steffen Schleiermacher is famous for his recordings of modern piano music. Maurico Kagel's Mimetics from 1961 requires that an additional piece be performed simultaneously. Schleiermacher chose to perform his own 'Piece for Toy Piano and IKEA Bells' 'Schoen Hut'. Schoen Hut is the manufacturer of the toy piano which he customized with bells from the toy department of the IKEA furniture store. Stockhausen's 'Intervalle' was composed and inspired by the societal turmoil of 1968. The composer identified with the Darmstadt Summer School movement took the stringent serialistic compositional methods of the 1950s and opened them up for improvisation and other devices."
