about

Manifesto

1) Extend the moment by resisting the temptation to consciously entertain. For example, if something feels like it is going on for too long, make it go on for much longer.
2) Challenge the listener by using ambiguous harmonic material. More precisely, use modes of limited transposition exclusively.
3) Improvisation is not a valid tool to create something new. Improvisation may only happen on one of the following levels: rhythmic, pitch, thematic, dynamic, formal. Interaction guided by quality listening is not improvisation.
4) One musical idea per piece is more than enough.
5) It is pointless to give people what you think they expect. Honour your audience by contributing to the self-actualization process of each listener.
6) Allow the music to take on symphonic proportions. The whole is larger than the sum of its parts. Also, the part is larger than the sum of its parts.
7) Music lives in live performance.

The group, made up of four guitarists, took its name from Olivier Messiaen's famous composition and was formed in the year of his hundredth birthday. However, there is no claim made to be related to him or his music in any way. - Markus Reuter, 15 February 2009
