Karlrecords presents the second collaboration between the critically acclaimed ensemble zeitkratzer and the legendary power electronics and afro noise pioneer William Bennett (Whitehouse, Cut Hands). Music with crystal clear, even neurosurgical precision -- pure acoustic power! The floor vibrates with deep bass frequencies, produced by the huge orchestral drum, the beaten bass strings of the piano, and sub-tones of the horns, while high piping sounds from amplified violin harmonics and bitten clarinet tones attack the listener. And one can hear voices from all over -- distorted by being spoken through a trombone or a French horn, made phantasmal in the density of the songs. No electronic effects used. Features vocals by William Bennett on "Daddo." Directed by Reinhold Friedl, zeitkratzer, in this performance, consisted of Friedl Frank Gratkowski, clarinets; Hild Sofie Tafjord, french horn; Hilary Jeffery, trombone; Reinhold Friedl, piano; Tony Buck, percussion; Lisa Marie Landgraf, violin; Burkhard Schlothauer, violin; Anton Lukoszevieze, violoncello; and Uli Phillipp, double bass. Recorded live at the Musique Action Festival in Nancy, France. Recorded and mixed by Martin Wurmnest. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve. Includes download code. Edition of 500.
