This compilation is a continuation of the emphase single series called emphasolo. The concept behind the singles and this CD is that each artist was asked to record a track by using only one sound source. This can of course be all imaginable kinds of instruments, but also animal voices, toys, field recordings or whatever. The artists were totally free in composing, recording and arranging their music, as long as they took their sounds just from this one instrument they decided to play. We have a brilliant hihat-track by Ronald Lippok (to rococo rot / tarwater), a flute-track by Anne Laplantine (aka Angelika Köhlermann or Michiko Kusaki); Claudia Kapp edited and arranged a cat's voice and Reuber did throat-singing. The instruments range from bassguitar to vibraphone, from violin to jegog.
