Produced and recorded at the WDR Radio in Cologne, Germany, the “Akustisches Abreaktionsspiel” (Aktion 38b) is “neither a radio-play nor a work of music. it merely portrays the acoustic part of an “Abreaktionsspiel” (a play of abreaction). The special and specific usage of the acoustic possibilities are in the foreground, while the visual part of the play is communicated by a narrator“. A prime example of the intense & noisy wildness of Nitsch’s early actions, employing scream-choirs, beating, whistles, chaotic Austrian folklore juxtapositions, a pretty rough brass section and dissonant strings.
Including two A4 prints with the first page each of the musical and the theatrical score.
