"zeitkratzer Column One: Entropium

Format: LP (180gr, gatefold sleeve, download code, 300 items)

Release date: may 15th 2015

Five compositions by the Berlin based electroacoustic / industrial collective Column One in stunning interpretations by zeitkratzer, recorded live at Berghain during MaerzMusik 2012.

Within their nearly 2 decades of existence, zeitkratzer have gained high reputation for their unique approach, their outstanding and internationally acclaimed members and their adventurous projects that include collaborations with noise musicians like Merzbow and Zbigniew Karkowski, rocknroll experimentalists like Lou Reed and William Bennett
(Whitehouse), electronic musicians like Carsten Nicolai and Terre Thaemlitz, reinterpretations of Schnberg and Bach as well as performances of music by composers
such as Helmut Lachenmann, James Tenney and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
Column One and zeitkratzer first worked together in the late nineties at Podewil, which was at that time the most influential and vanguard location in Berlin. The new compositions, presented here for the first time, were recorded at Berghain in Berlin during the 2012 MaerzMusik Festival. Column Ones mastermind Robert Schalinski developed five scores for acoustic instruments based on electroacoustic sound files. These scores were transcribed by Reinhold Friedl and the zeitkratzer musicians, refining and working them out together, using the complexity and sensuality of their amplified instrumental sound which matches perfectly the industrial musique concrte of the Berlin based artist collective (recently, Rashad Becker joined the group) who cite Dada and the Surrealists as important influences.
