The Kammerflimmer Kollektief plays music, which should not be written down, for it would scorch the paper. The project, whose music meanders between precision and freedom, has been founded in 1996 by Thomas Weber. Up to now, the Kollektief has released nine albums in all sorts of line ups. Live performances all over the world are realized as a trio with Heike Aumüller and Johannes Frisch.

The Kammerflimmer Kollektief is emotive and impassioned. It is also as lucid and precise as those moods which Robert Musil (who is above suspicion of a being a romanticist) called "daylight mysticism". The lyrics and the music want to be heard, they want to be explored, even suffered. Sound builds songs which are made of sounds, and yet they’re no longer songs.

Out Now :

The Schwarzenbach - “Nicht sterben. Aufpassen.” - staubgold 142 CD/DL
This meeting was planned by the devil, because he wanted to do some good for a change: the avant-jazz-electronica-rock’n'roll project Kammerflimmer Kollektief from Karlsruhe has been assembling a wide range of sounds live and on record ranging from unforeseeable noise, soft sighs of love and exploding hearts of iron since 1996. Now they are making music with writer, journalist and former Spex editor in chief Dietmar Dath. The musicians and the author chose their shared name in honour of the lesbian author and journalist Annemarie Schwarzenbach.
