Label: Editions Mego
This is the second full-length release by KTL, the formidable collaboration between Stephen O'Malley (SunnO))), Khanate, etc.) and Peter Rehberg (Pita, etc.). Devastatingly beautiful four-part follow up to the highly acclaimed debut CD, recorded in a former abattoir in Angers, as well as a 16th century manor in the extreme west of France. Taking the blueprint that was laid out on the first record even further, with the ecstatic build up of "Theme," the near-psychedelic "Abattoir," and closing with the twisted romanticism of the closing "Snow 2." An upgrade both artistically and emotionally. As with the first CD, elements appeared in the finished version of the theatre piece Kindertotenlieder by Gisele Vienne and Dennis Cooper, which premiered in Brest, France, March 2007. Stephen O'Malley (strings, fx, amps, tube osc.); Peter Rehberg (digital osc, apps, drives). Written, recorded & mixed by Stephen O'Malley & Peter Rehberg at Studio Abattoir, Angers & Manoir Kéroual, Guilers, December 2006 - February 2007. Mastered at Piethopraxis, Köln, March 2007.
