Antoine Beuger (1955)
created extremely submusical works such as
the 70-minute composition Calme Etendue - Spinoza (Edition Wandelweiser, 2001)
the 24 Silent Harmonies In Discrete Continuity (Edition Wandelweiser, 2004).
A Young Person's Guide To Antoine Beuger (Slub, 2008) is probably not the
best introduction to the composer because it
collects the mediocre
Tanzaku for eight bowed instruments (twelve brief barely audible
droning pieces in various tones)
the laughable six-movement
Sekundenklange for "an instrument with decaying sounds" (absolutely
nothing happens while he sporadically plucks a string other than the
"decay" of the tone).
Other notable compositions include
Two and Too,
two colossal "suites" that constitute the double-disc Two Too (2009),
the 89-minute Keine Fernen Mehr (2010),
the 47-minute Un Lieu Pour Etre Deux (2011),
and the 51-minute S'Approcher S'Eloigner S'Absenter (2012).
