Jürg Frey (b. 1953) — Leichte Bewegung im Grenzenlosen (Slight Movement in the Boundlessness) (2006) for organ
Swiss composer and clarinetist Jürg Frey (b. 1953) was educated at the Geneva Conservatory. He has developed his own musical style that sits at an intersection of contemporary music and sound art. His music employs wide, quiet soundscapes and is marked by an elementary non-extravagance of sound, a sensibility for the qualities of the material, and precision of compositional approach. He is a member of the Wandelweiser Group, a collective of composers and performers for whom “the evaluation and integration of silence(s) is important, rather than an ongoing carpet of never-ending sounds.” Frey’s music has been performed and recorded throughout the world and he has been a visiting composer at Universität der Künste Berlin, the Universität Dortmund, Northwestern University, and CalArts.
