Notes & Reviews:

Borut Krzisnik (b.1961) is a Slovenian composer, based in Ljubljana. Claudio are releasing seven of his albums and he has written music for numerous feature films, dance performances and theatre productions. In his music, Krzisnik creates meeting point for avant-garde and popular music, or else, 'academic' and 'underground' music. His compositions are characterised by their boldness, intensity, contrasts and unique sound. The symphony orchestra is transformed by computer technology into a "super-real" orchestra, challenging and discovering new territories in symphonic music. Using a polyglot musical language, he draws a common thread through all the contrasts and introduces them to us with inspiring optimism. Freedom can be understood as one pleases - one can improvise to break free from a predetermined score or one can programme music to break free from physical limitations of an instrument. Yet, the freedom to choose what one does not want is far less important than the freedom to choose what one really wants - it is not about being free from something, but to be free for something.
