The double album Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt follows Ingrid Laubrock's landmark orchestral album Contemporary Chaos Practices from 2018 (Intakt CD 314).

On Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt Laubrock presents five compositions in double version. On the first CD, the EOS Chamber Orchestra Cologne interprets Laubrock's compositions. The soloists are Cory Smythe (piano), Sam Pluta (electronics), Robert Landfermann (bass), Tom Rainey (drums) and Ingrid Laubrock (saxophone). On the second CD of the double album, a filigree ensemble based around the core trio of Ingrid Laubrock, Cory Smythe, Sam Pluta and guests Adam Matlock, Josh Modney and Zeena Parkins play the same five compositions.

The two CDs of Dreamt Twice, Twice Dream contrast, diverge and complement each other. Ingrid Laubrock writes: "While the small-group versions were composed first, I did not just re-arrange those compositions for the orchestra but rather re-imagined them. As I wrote the large-scale pieces, I often zoomed in on a detail in a small-group version to generate a materially different large-group piece."

Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt paints fascinating musical panoramas, inspired by the composer's dream worlds, characterized by Laub­rock's ability to compose and the individual colors and shades of the soloists.

Das Doppelalbum «Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt» folgt auf Ingrid Laubrocks wegweisendes Orchesteralbum «Contemporary Chaos Practices» von 2018 (Intakt CD 314).

Auf «Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt» präsentiert Laubrock fünf Kompositionen in doppelter Ausführung. Auf der ersten CD interpretiert das neunzehnköpfigen EOS Kammerorchester Köln Laubrocks Kompositionen. Als Solisten wirken Cory Smythe (Piano), Sam Pluta (Electronics), Robert Landfermann (Bass), Tom Rainey (Schlagzeug) und Ingrid Laubrock (Saxofon). Auf einer zweiten CD des Doppelalbums spielt ein filigranes Ensemble um das Kerntrio von Ingrid Laubrock, Cory Smythe, Sam Pluta und den Gästen Adam Matlock, Josh Modney und Zeena Parkins die gleichen fünf Kompositionen.

Die beiden CDs mit Laubrocks Werken kontrastieren, divergieren und ergänzen sich. Ingrid Laubrock schreibt: «Die Versionen für das Small Ensemble habe ich zuerst komponiert. Ich habe diese Stücke aber nicht einfach für das Orchester umarrangiert, sondern sie vielmehr neu erfunden. Oft zoomte ich auf ein Detail, um ein materiell anderes Werk zu erzeugen."

Als Ganzes malen die beiden CDs faszinierende musikalische Panoramen, inspiriert von den Traumwelten der Komponistin, gekennzeichnet von Laubrocks Kompositionsfähigkeit und den individuellen Färbungen und Schattierungen der SolistInnen.
