More Info

Erstes 7-Vinyl fr AMBARCHI, hier wesentlich agiler, kratziger und hochfrequent-sirrender als auf den letzten longplayern, aber soundsthetisch nicht minder schn... nummerierte Auflage von 500 Stck.
there are different ways to get in contact with the musical ouevre of the sydney-based oren ambarchi, one of the most prolific musicians in contemporary experimental music in the last few years: via his projects sun or phlegm, his collaborations with keith rowe, phil niblock, fennesz or martin ng (to name but a few) or his highly acclaimed solo releases on staalplaat, touch and staubgold.
"der kleine knig" is ambarchi's first 7" and certainly a step in a new direction - till now his droney, almost poetic explorations were done solely with guitar and effect units. this is his first release constructed with computer [this, by the way, was also the case with tonschacht 004 by ashtray navigations], and it shows - especially on side b - a yet unknown harsh, piercing but very clear sound. imagine kevin drumm kickin' raster-noton's butt. side a however contains a beautiful, yet distorting dense piece which develops around a fragmented melody of ovalish melancholy.
