The german minimal composer Ernstalbrecht Stiebler this year celebrated his 80th birthday. m=minimal honours the work of this master of reduction with the third release dedicated exclusivly to his work. In opposite to many modern composer that use avantgardistic special effects, Stiebler builds his compositions around small sound spaces. As the composer himself said in an interview, his music is not intended to be easy. He demands a certain concentration of his listeners. Once you accept it you get rewarded with shifted time perception. A piece of 15 minutes duration can be perceived as 45 minutes. His music in the last few years gained more and more attention. His works were performed at many festivals including CTM, MaerzMusik, Mutek a.o. He composed works for Ensemble Modern and the HR (german broadcasting) commisioned him to compose an orchestral work. For his 80th birthday the German "Initiative Neue Musik" organized a 3 day festival in Berlin.
