Tristan Xavier Köster's "On the Mutability and Manipulation of Identity" is a collection of works created between October 2021 and January 2022.

Exploring the concepts of memory, transformation, and the confrontation of fixed identities, Tristan Xavier Köster creates a sonic collage that reframes the philosophical concepts that have accompanied him through tragedy and fortune.

By exploring the limits of notated music through the sampling and recomposition of his chamber music, Tristan Xavier Köster embarks on a journey where there is "no longer any land". Let us shed the suffocating clothing of latent political, religious, and ethical ideologies to begin anew, together.
