Op.192 Umwälzung - Fluxorum Organum 1990 Eurasienstab Ist Immernoch Angelpunkt is a previously unissued work by Henning Christiansen from 1990. Around the formation of the European Union, Henning approached his original Eurasienstab organ recordings from 1968 as a platform to remold a vast amount of audio he made over the subsequent years This special two-CD release comprises two different mixes of Umwälzung that were made for Werner Durand in 1990 to be used as backing tapes for a performance at Ballhaus Naunynstrasse in February 1990. Umwälzung is unique in Henning's output as it resides in a more contemporary landscape positioning itself more as a "mix" than a stand-alone recording -- one which retains the skewered sensibility that only Henning could conjure. The two-hour long versions of Umwälzung are haunted with tape hiss, weird interference, and a deeply melancholic aura that moves from the original Eurasienstab organ recordings through to the somewhat hysterical 180 Hammer Blows Against War Monkeys , resulting in an epic and hypnotic excursion. Presented here in full cooperation with the Henning Christiansen estate. Comes in a mini-album gatefold sleeve; Edition of 500.
