More Info

Eines schönen Tages kamen vier Hamburger Geräuschmusiker auf die für manch einen etwas absonderlich scheinende Idee, die seltsamen Klänge, die die kaputte Heizung an ihrem gemeinsamen Treffpunkt (dem sogenannten 'Raum 318') von sich gab, aufzunehmen und dies als Ausgangsmaterial für ihre eigenen Musiken einzusetzen.
Die kurzweiligen und natürlich gar zauberhaften Ergebnisse dieses Einfalls sind z.B. mit "heiz" und "keine Wärme" betitelt und befinden sich auf diesem feinen Tonträger, und zwar kreiert von STEFAN FUNCK, GREGORY BÜTTNER, ASMUS TIETCHENS, und NICOLAI STEPHAN. Auch das Originalmaterial gibt es zu hören.

"The four musicians have been meeting weekly in room 318 for years, but only now did they create music using the acoustics of the room. To be more precise, using one element in the room: the heating. The heating has two problems: first, it doesn‘t heat. Second, it whistles. Problem one is unnerving, especially during the winter. Problem two can be used aesthetically: by turning the radiator knobs, not only can the pitch of the whistling be varied, by using several radiators a multitude of sounds and noises can be created. To add to that, the three radiators used influence one another so that the musicians can provoke aimed acoustic situations. The three radiators were played simultaneously and recorded using a room microphone to create the material for the seven tracks. The unedited version can be heard on track eight."[credits]
