“Racking“ and “Tracking“ are pieces about time and repetition, subtle changes and harsh contrasts.
Both works were created in 2010 and have been performed by Torsten Papenheim in numerous venues all
over europe since then. The sets are compositions, re-improvisations, concerts, performances,
sound installations - all at once. That's why both have been played live often, but not being recorded.
In fall 2018 Torsten Papenheim finally arranged "tracking" and "racking" for a recording session at stromraum
in stuttgart. The results are now being released on tape by brussels-based label Tanuki Records.
