Mike Svoboda: Phonometrie links Satie to Cage

img  Tobias
To realise “Phonometrie”, Mike Svobodoa has called for the assistance of well-established Stefan Hussong and still relatively unknown Anne-May Krüger. While Hussong’s Accordeon has featured on a plethora of albums and by record companies like Mode, Thorofon, Col Legno and (again) Wergo, 1978-born singer Krüger is making her recording debut here. Next to providing vocals, she will also contribute barrel organ, toy piano and melodica – not only adding a youthful touch to the music, but also a timbral depth to its arrangements. A collaboration with broadcaster Deutschlandfunk, “Phonometrie” is still hot and fresh, having been recorded only last year.

Next to his many simultaneous CD projects, Mike Svoboda will soon start teaching "contemporary music projects” at the Hochschule für Musik in Basel, Switzerland.
