notes/Layout: Jonas Bergler:
published in October 1996
from the booklet:
First of all, you need to listen to this loud, better still
with headphones, otherwise those sounds that hover between
the notes (...) get lost in the quotidian around you.
BERNHARD ARNDT, the Berlin pianist, composer and improviser,
cuts a brilliant figure, walking the line between musical
frontiers. In addition to composition work, intensive engagement
with jazz and new music has brought him together with musicians
like John Tchicai, Cecil Taylor and Butch Morris, including
the latter´s group `Berlin Skyscrapers´ (FMP CD 092/93). Now
we hear him play solo piano. BERNHARD ARNDT improvises and
composes. Inside the piano, inside sounds. He´s pretty good
at it, as you´ll hear. (...)
This music grows from deep inside the concert grand itself.
Listen to ´Inside´. Experience the interior life of piano
sounds, as only BERNHARD ARNDT can show it to you…
