Boomkat Product Review:
"German minimal composer Ernstalbrecht Stiebler celebrated his 80th birthday this year. M=minimal honours the work of this master of reduction with the third release dedicated exclusivly to his work. Unlike many modern composers that use avantgardistic special effects, Stiebler builds his compositions around small sound spaces.
As the composer himself said in an interview, his music is not intended to be easy. He demands a certain concentration of his listeners. Once you accept it you get rewarded with shifted time perception. A piece of 15 minutes duration can be perceived as 45 minutes. His music in the last few years gained more and more attention. His works were performed at many festivals including CTM, MaerzMusik, Mutek a.o. He composed works for Ensemble Modern and the HR (german broadcasting) commisioned him to compose an orchestral work.
