John Cageの構成主義とMorton Feldmanの叙情主義の影響下、全く独自の音楽を生み出したドイツ人音楽家Walter Zimmermannによる2002年出版アルバム。全4曲入り。

The influence of two American composers - John Cage and Morton Feldman - has been decisive on Walter Zimmermann. With Cage, it was his music from the late forties - works like the String Quartet, the Suite for Toy Piano and the Six Melodies - that caught his attention: works underpinned by precise numerical construction, yet with an engaging directness of expression. Feldman has been an inspiration to Zimmermann's lyrical impetus, and Cage to his constructivist urges. Yet the two do not always co-exist comfortably, and it is partly the constant conflict and confrontation of the two which ensures that, far from being a 'displaced American', he is a quintessentially mid-European creator. The result is a totally individual sound; 'detached' in tone, yet often strangely touching. Its sparse, yet highly precise notation actually makes great demands on the performer, and the resulting 'introverted virtuosity', as Zimmermann calls it, remains a hallmark of his music.

Further to Zimmermann's highly regarded reputation in Europe, John Cage recognized his unique voice and commissioned Zimmermann to compose scores to a number of dances for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.
