Eva-Maria Houben – Breath For Organ
Second Editions 003 / CD / Edition of 300 / February 09 2018

Second Editions is pleased to present a new work by composer / organist / musicologist Eva-Maria Houben.

Breath For Organ is many things. A composition as contemplation. A study on listening, on deliberation. An approach to modesty.
At times, it even feels like an ode to the whole history of organ music. But most importantly, at its core, it is an appreciation for an instrument as an organism. In this case, the (now displaced) pipe organ of the late St. Franziskus church in Krefeld, Germany.

It is Houben's most compelling piece to date. Bold, sparse, abstract. Yet vibrant and hypnotic. Determined in concept and execution.
Musical existentialism.

Second Editions is pleased to present the physical edition of Interference by Kevin Drumm.

Five sequentially numbered pieces of phantom electronics, preceded by an opener/overture that pulls you right in, appropriately entitled Intro. An aural investigation, down the rabbit hole. This is KD to the bone. Essential.

René Margraff / Malte Cornelius Jantzen – Split
Second Editions 001 / MC with download / Edition of 100 / April 17 2017

Second Editions is pleased to present two new compositions by René Margraff and Malte Cornelius Jantzen, as a double a-side split album.

Margraff renders several organ tones with the assistance of his modular system and computer into naturally progressing, yet perfectly calculated harmonics. While Jantzen's latest cloak & dagger excursion into music, or inversion of music if preferred, slows everything down to a point beyond comprehension. Listen closely. Strictly limited.
