With THE LAST PLACE (LEFT) the Bern-based composer Marcel Zaes creates a fragile sound landscape, which moves familiar things into a surprising light. The deliberate surrender of virtuosity and melody puts the focus entirely on the inner self of the sound and the rhythm that is derived from prime numbers. Subtly handcrafted electronic sounds mix inseparably with the baritone violin and accordion. THE LAST PLACE (LEFT) is at the same time machined poetry and groovy sound carpet.
