Bernd Kistenmacher Classic Collection

This is the original version of Bernd Kistenmacher's solo-album "Antimatter". The album was released in 2011 by Mellowjet Records, Germany. It was the 3rd production for this label. Beside the recordings for his albums "Celestial Movements" and "Beyond The Deep", "Antimatter" is the 3rd release of Bernd Kistenmacher's "Trilogy of the Universe".

„Antimatter” completes Bernd Kistenmacher's „Trilogy of the Universe“. What started with “Celestial Movements” (a soundtrack
for the stars) and continued with “Beyond The Deep” (a musical examination of the question of genesis) gave a certain
direction: from huge to small and from the “here and now” to the roots of existence. The Big Bang in the laboratory is the
musical theme of “Antimatter”. And it is not any laboratory but the LHC, the Large Hadron Collider. This “world's biggest
machine” was built to answer the question of genesis. What happened a picosecond after the Big Bang? Can this moment be
re-enacted in the laboratory? To understand it (at least a little bit) he was advised by Rolf Landua, physicist at CERN - the
European Organisation for Nuclear Research in Geneva. Protons are being accelerated to speed of light in two antidromic
magnetrons and crossed at a destined point to make them collide. Energy becomes matter. They say: opposites attract. Often
they destroy each other. Like as if matter and antimatter clash and erase in bright light.
Bernd Kistenmacher always takes human aspects into account in his compositions. How do we behave when we “collide”? Do
we complement one another or do we simply exist to erase one another? “Antimatter” cannot give the answer but wants to
show the energies which dominate human beings. We all originate from a creative act! Similarly, Bernd Kistenmacher artistically
deals with the term “beauty”. What is “beautiful”? He states that even technical processes have a poetic, a beautiful aspect. So,
“Antimatter” is not only the music adjusted to a physical experiment but is also the music to a virtual movie which shows
nothing else but the beauty of the universe. Energy becomes music. Technical-electronical sound structures alternate with
symphonic textures. The music gets more and more compact and powerful up to the moment of collision. The circle is
complete. The album ends as it began. With a simple tone similar to a small source of energy.
The universe has been created and we are watching the stars again. An eternal cycle?
