3: rebecca:
Kai Fagaschinski (clarinet) & Michael Renkel (acoustic guitar & preparations)
rebecca has been existing from 2001 to 2005. This is their return after a five years hiatus.
The work began with improvisations. Over the cause of time the same piece was repeatedly "improvised" again, reducing the concept of improvisation to absurdity. Through repeated playing a musical piece, a composition comes into being. The piece is not notated. rebecca remembers, and forgets. It is not so much a matter of interpreting a preconceived idea but rather of continuously working on and within the piece. Repetition as memory facing forward.  
CD: rebecca [two variations], charhizma 2003
