CHAYA CZERNOWIN Afatsim

Born in Israel, composer Chaya Czernowin has lived in Germany, Japan and the U.S. Her teachers included Dieter Schnebel, Joan Tower, Brian Ferneyhough and Roger Reynolds.
Czernowin's sound occupies a unique world. Often many instruments are used to become one "composite" instrument. Time is slowed down, so that the slow flow of sound enables one to perceive the smallest details of a texture or a sound. The resulting music can feel fluid, dense or agitated, at times echoing that of Xenakis and Ferneyhough.
She has been awarded numerous international prizes including: Gaudeamus Composer's Workshop, DAAD Scholarship (Berlin), Stipendium Preis and Kranichsteiner Musikpreis (Darmstadt), Asahi Shimbum Fellowship (Tokyo), NEA Composition Commission Grant, ISCM and IRCAM commissions.
Czernowin is on the composition faculty of the University of California at San Diego. This is the debut recording of her works.
A special opportunity to hear an exciting voice in New Music. (Mode Records)

  3. ¿Any chance you could upload Czernowin's "The Quiet"? I can only find versions that have 2 out of 5 tracks.
