This fourth edition of the Open_Music series AUSSICHTEN (Prospects) was conceived and produced by Felix Borel. He wrote the following about his work:

"The basic idea for Prospects 4 is quickly told. Each musician got his personal track produced by me, the only playing instruction being to act solistically, in whatever form and with whatever material. Everyone has, so to speak, his own "orchestra" , to which he develops the solo part, as a feature for each musician of the Open_Music Ensemble, which is why the tracks are named after their respective soloists.

For the recording of the "orchestra tracks" I used a different set of instruments for each movement to create different sound spaces and moods. melodica, frame drum, piano interior processed with e-bow and brushes, kalimba, violin and viola are the sources of these sounds.”

For Prospects 4 - SOLISTEN, Felix Borel multitracked the musicians' various offerings in the studio and Roderik Vanderstraeten gave the mixes the final audio polish. The five solistic movements are framed by an intro and outro featuring all the musicians of the ensemble.
Track list with instruments:
01 Intro - Ensemble Tutti
02 Kruse - Jürgen Kruse: piano // + frame drum, viola
03 Behringer - Felix Behringer: bass clarinet // + piano interior (brushes, e-bow) kalimba
04 Kiedaisch - Michael Kiedaisch: vibraphone, drumset // + viola, live electronics
05 Roller - Scott Roller: cello, mandocello, live electronics // + violin, viola
06 Vanderstraeten - Roderik Vanderstraeten: bouzouki, tubular bells, cymbals, devil fiddle, street bass, Moog Matriarch // + melodica
07 Outro - Ensemble Tutti

Prospects (AUSSICHTEN) is made possible by the generous support of the City of Stuttgart and the Wüstenrot Foundation, for which Open_Music is very grateful.
