Kammgarn Chronicles

Werner Bärtschi, piano
Fred Frith, electric guitar

Recorded in concert, December 19, 2004 in Kammgarn, Schaffhausen, Switzerland

Werner Bärtschi, classical virtuoso and adventurer, and Fred Frith, improviser and adventurer met in the 1980s through their happening to be on the same Swiss label, RecRec. They bonded through their mutual love of Erik Satie, and played several concerts together. This one was recorded. Frith and Bärtschi, who reside in different musical worlds, never rehearsed or planned anything in advance. In this case, however, they followed the organizer's request that the concert should last about an hour.

This site will be focused on archival material that has never been released or is out of print.
