This is the première release of Julius Eastman’s Femenine, for chamber ensemble. It is also the work’s only known recording, documenting a 1974 performance by the S.E.M. Ensemble (with the composer on piano) which has lain unheard for decades.
Often associated with sparse electronic music, A Certain Degree of Stasis sees Thomas Brinkmann in command of a maximalist’s palette. A sonic counterpart to Agnes Lux’s visual work, the piece explores both fierce digital textures and sustained crystalline calm.
