Music for Fragments developed from a collaboration with Canadian choreographer Sylvain Emard. Two excerpts of music composed for the dance piece Fragments - Volume 1 (2010) are presented in revised form on the A side.
Music & Birds is a commissioned work for the CosmoCaixa science museum in Barcelona, Spain. Using various recordings of birdsong and two oscillators, Jelinek produced a number of rhythmical sketches. The tracks gathered here were recorded during the preparations for a live performance in 2011.
The series of compilations will culminate in the release of a vinyl collectors box and booklet. The digital release will be no less of a monumental gesture: a limited edition of USB concrete blocks will house the MP3 versions of Jelinek's compilations. It is planned to install the data storage devices - each measuring approximately .125 cubic Meters - to be freely accessible in music shops an other public spaces.
