Aalfang mit Pferdekopf / Dronæment - Hermit Haven (CD-R, Tosom)
An expert for
bizarre soundscapes meets an expert for Drones - or to point it clearly:
This is a collaboration of Mirko Uhlig (Aalfang mit Pferdekopf) and
Marcus Obst (Dronæment)
resulting in six strange titels, two of them excessing the 20 minutes
mark. So you easily see it's not pop music or whatever-genre-disco-tunes.
It's 100 percent music to listen to, full of exceptional sounds, sometimes
a bit way-out. The drones mostly make the background while some drifted
chords on a guitar or a violin set a strange melancholic mood and field
noises like rolling metal sounds or frog croaking give this music a
real life dimension.
One of the reasons for not falling depressive is the weird humor, especially A.m.P. is known for. Like at most of it's works the song titles are rather bizarre, as is the sample in "Ethnographische Kühe", when Mirko Uhlig (or someone he sampled) tells stories about a non-existing animal.
