about

"I was shocked to hear that Cor Fuhler died, one of the kindest and funniest musicians I've worked with.

An inventor, improviser, composer and keyboardist, brilliant on synths and laptop and then suddenly bowling you over with a few isolated pianochords. Cor was about open structures, playfulness and transparency, but at the same time he went through enormous lengths to avoid repeating himself.

He introduced me to proper synthesizers where you could separate each parameter of sound, playing around with them, make them interact. I'll never forget the 'prehistoric' piece he wrote for the Maarten Altena Ensemble where he was blowing us away from the back with these completely insane sounds on the EMS Synthi, like fighting dinosaurs in Gondwana, where he moved soon after. A lot of fun.

Rust zacht, Cor Fuhler.

I've made the piece from what I recorded, played, played back, read and heard in my surroundings after I learned Cor had died. Among other materials here I used recordings of Cor playing 'flintglas', me playing 'Rafels' and the sound of me writing on a version of that score. "
