Brueder Selke

“It’s an extraordinary piece of music. It’s the work of two brothers, Sebastian on cello and Daniel on piano. I saw them premiere tracks from their new album at a gig that I went to in Berlin. This is a project which is written about the buildings that surrounded them in their childhood, growing up on the streets of East Berlin.“

“Hausmusik is an album by the Selke brothers – Sebastian on cello and Daniel on piano. On tracks such as Fallen they create metronomic, Nyman-ish miniatures that sound as if they’ve been plotted on graph paper; tracks like Reunion see them jabber rhythmically, with Sebastian playing pizzicato; elsewhere they explore texture – creaking strings, bashed wood, triple stopping – over minimal one-chord drones with a horror-movie intensity.”
