“Another approach to ultimate situations, nearly stillness before becoming silent as Samuel Beckett taught us. End Game. Microtones and structures are only the tools. The Night Of Lead revisited…”
Asmus Tietchens’ first released his unique electronic music in 1980, but created works since the late 1960s. Since then he has produced over 37 full length solo works and more cutting edge recordings on numerous international labels dealing with electronic sound and conctrete music. Some of his over 20 full length collaborative projects include the ongoing Kontakt der Junglinge with Thomas Koner. Tietchens’ focus is the manipulation of found sound in ways suggested by the material itself. German label Die Stadt has begun to reissue his groundbreaking early works on cd in limited edition. His latest critically acclaimed project, a series based strictly on sine tones and white noise is the “Mengen” series released by Ritornell/Mille Plateaux (Alpha-, Beta- Delta-, and Gamma-Menge).
