The internationally renowned orchestra ZEITKRATZER known for it’s interpretations of contemporary composers like MORTON FELDMAN, STOCKHAUSEN, LA MONTE YOUNG und JOHN CAGE with a fi rst full instrumental version of LOU REED’s “Metal Machine”, available as CD.
About 10 years after their fi rst, critically acclaimed performances of LOU REED’s adventurous album, ZEITKRATZER presents an audacious new interpretation of this 20th century avant-garde classic. Here, for the fi rst time ever, all four parts of “Metal Machine Music” played by zeitkratzer on one recording! Seriously „clangorous“! Mixed and mastered by RASHAD BECKER.
Played by a live group, „Metal Machine Music“ sounds even wilder and more frenetic, and zeitkratzer‘s act of fandom moves „Metal Machine Music“ into a context where, perhaps, it always belonged: as an avant-garde piece of bristling minimalism…
