Format: 2CD

Genre: Experimental

In stock


2010 expanded reissue of the 1999 compilation Lebenserinnerungen Eines Lepidopterologen ("Memoirs of a Lepidopterist"), collecting the collaborative and early solo works of Andreas Martin and Christoph Heemann as an extensive two-CD retrospective. Moving between minimalist guitar compositions, tape-music narratives, and an array of cascading electronics, each of Martin and Heemann's solo recordings blends seamlessly within the milieu of their collaborative work. While one can hear how this forged the groundwork for much of the late-period H.N.A.S. material, the work here took the vision further, and helped shape a path toward their respective solo endeavors. Included are compositions from their first solo releases, Martin's Doppelpunkt Vor Ort (1993) and Heemann's Über den Umgang mit Umgebung und Andere Versuche (1991), each originally released in a limited 10" edition. Also featured is a prime selection of previously unreleased material, obscure 7" tracks, and their collaborative opus from the H.N.A.S. Ach, Dieser Bart! LP (1988).

This deluxe set includes two additional tracks not included on the 1999 edition and features fully restored visuals. Packaged in a beautiful mini-LP gatefold jacket with an updated four-page booklet. Over 100 minutes of music covering the years 1987-2000. Remastered sound.
