ECM (Edition of Contemporary Music) is a German record label founded in 1969 by Manfred Eicher. Spanning the gamut from jazz to classical and various hybrids thereof, ECM has since its inception been at the forefront of contemporary music and has been widely recognized for its meticulous recordings and distinctive cover art.
The purpose of between sound and space is to provide a subjective and open forum for all things ECM. In May of 2015, I achieved my goal of reviewing every album released on the ECM and ECM New Series imprints and will be using this blog primarily to keep step with the label as it continues to expand it catalogue. I will be proceeding as chronologically as I am able, though the order of reviews will also depend on what I am listening to at the time and on the trajectory of future releases.
