In July we worked with Aaron Cassidy on a new piece by Turgut Erçertin and recorded it at the WDR Funkhaus. Unfortunately, no audience could be admitted due to the Corona Pandemic. But we produced a short teaser in which Turgut Erçetin and Carl Rosman give you an insight into this exciting work commissioned by Kunststiftung NRW and Ensemble Musikfabrik. We are very much looking forward to the recording, which will be released on a CD in the Edition Zeitgenössische Musik of the German Music Council.
