Ofer Bymel & Gregory Büttner 'Ripsnorter' - Collaboration of Israel drummer and experimentalist Ofer Bymel with German sound artist Gregory Büttner. The album contains two long improvisations, the first recorded in Gastatelier Fleetinsel (where Ofer got an artist residency for one month) and the second recorded live at "Blurred Edges" Festival in 2010 in Hamburg. There with Ofer breathes through his instrument and handles it with a lot of extended techniques; Gregory plays his sounds using a laptop through small loudspeakers which he prepares or plays with resonating objects. As a result the record gives an impression of a perfect melting of acoustic and electronic sounds.

Gregory Büttner lives and works as a musician and artist in Hamburg. Since 2000 his main focus is on sound art and electroacoustic compositions. He performed at several festivals and concert series in Europe and Asia, composed music for dance and performance, radio, video and sound installations. In 2004 he launched his label 1000füssler which releases experimental music in small editions. He plays regularly in a duo with Birgit Ulher, ‘Stark Bewölkt Quartett‘ with Michael Maierhof, Heiner Metzger, Birgit Ulher, or as ‘für diesen abend‘ with Stefan Funck and Katrin Bethge. He also collaborated with musicians Rhodri Davies, Ofer Bymel, Chris Heenan, the artist Anja Winterhalter, Stefanie Becker, Magdalena Sadziak, among others. His music released by labels like 1000füssler, Firework Edition Records, Anthropometrics / Aufabwegen, Grünrekorder, Compost and Height.

Ofer Bymel born in 1984 in Jerusalem, studied piano and drums from an early age. In 2008 graduated from the Academy of Music and Dance Jerusalem in the field of composition. A leading Israeli drummer and improviser, Bymel has played with an extensive amount of musicians from Israel and abroad. Using his immense musicality combined with a vast palette of sounds and techniques, he is capable of playing an impressive range of effects: from the extremely soft and delicately inaudible to the harsh and explosive. Bymel has also led, and took part in many Improvised Music and Free-Jazz groups in Israel, as well as recently in Europe.

Ofer Bymel & Gregory Büttner 'Ripsnorter' - Совместная запись израильского барабанщика и эксперименталиста Офера Бимел и германского звуко-артиста Грегори Бюттнера. Альбом содержит две длинные композиции; первая записана в Гаштатлье Флетинзел (где Офер проживал в течение месяца) и следующая записана вживую на "Blurred Edges" фестивале в 2010 году в Гамбурге. При этом Офер извлекал звук из своего инструмента, используя свою особую технику. Грегори перевоспроизводил это и обрабатывал при помощи лэптопа, препарированных динамиков и играл на других резонирующих объектах. В результате запись производит впечатление прекрасных плавающих акустических и электронных звуков.


A duet of Ofer Bymel on drums (of whom I never heard) and Gregory Buttner (known as an improviser and the 1000Fussler label) on laptop, speaker and objects. The two pieces were recorded on two different dates in 2010. Obviously this is improvised music, but somehow sounds a bit different than what we usually hear in this area. It all seems to me heavily object based, electro-acoustic by nature, in which the drums are treated like an object too. The rattling of objects on the drum skin, along with whatever objects Buttners using in combination with the crackling, hissy, sustaining sounds produced by the laptop of Buttner make up two excellent pieces of music. Both play very careful with a strong emphasis on 'hearing', rather than an overload of sounds. A minimal approach which seems isolated to few sounds, or sometimes even a single sound each time, with that curious electronic processing going on, along with the spatial nature of using a variety of small speakers. Quite intense music, simply because there is not always a lot happening. Quiet music for a refined nature. (FdW)
