Roananax / Obliq The Berlin Series, N. 3: Roananax 1999. Obliq 2014
Roananax was composed of Axel Dorner (trumpet), Robin Hayward (tuba), Annette Krebs
(electroacoustic guitar) and Andrea Neumann (inside piano & mixing board) and this archival
recording is billed by the label as a pioneering effort of the so-called "Berlin reductionism",
"though the music isn't necessarily what you'd expect". Actually, if you've heard almost any of

Lucio Capece, Julia Eckhardt, Christian Kesten.... Wedding Ceremony
CD composed of two live performances in May 2007, Belgium (Gent and Brussels), in which the sextet
plays four composed pieces by four of the members (Kesten, track 1; Malfatti, track 3; Sugimoto,
track 4; Capece; track 5) and an improvised piece (relatively louder and busier than the other
ones). The second half of Capece's piece includes extracts of Guy Debord's text "The Society of
Spectacle" handed out by Capece or Kesten (not sure) to be read by the members of the public.

The ending didn't felt tacked on - it comes out almost as a necessary deconstruction as a
ritualistic quality, as
