Sugar Cubes
2012 CD/DVD from Testklang, Germany

The innovative Testklang Recording Cooperative has designed a CD/DVD package based on Bunita Marcus' music. There is a brilliantly performed and mastered CD of piano and ensemble works. The DVD showcases a film based on Marcus' "Sleeping Women" by filmmaker Aron Kitzig, as well as three discussions with Testklang's Creative Team on how the complete project was conceptualized and produced.

"There is strength in the delicacy of composer Bunita Marcus' music. It can manifest itself in a single note. Standing in the sunshine, with eyes closed, on a winter's day, to feel one drop of water on the cheek from an icicle above, one small impact that wakes up the hearer: this is here/now." - Glen Hall for Exclaim!

To order your copy, please see:

The Sugar Cubes CD/DVD includes an orchestration by Morton Feldman of Bunita's piano composition "Merry Christmas Mrs. Whiting." The original solo piano version of this work was recorded by Marc Tritschler during the making of the Sugar Cubes CD/DVD. It is not in the final Testklang CD/DVD package and is now being offered as a separate free download here. Please login or register (only starred items needed) to activate the Testklang download links. Enjoy the music!

"This piece is what my heart needed today. Beauty like this make words crumble into letter." -- composer and artist Gil Sansón.

The Icelandic Ensemble Adaptar has just recorded a sensational performance of Music for Japan. In this composition I tried to write an ugly piece. This work was a favorite of Morton Feldman and Toru Takemitsu. The amazing performance by Adapter captures all the shocks, jolts and experiments of this challenging composition.
