Erste Veröffentlichung für das neue Berliner Label PONG. PHILIPP SCHEFFNER versucht hier, hörspielartig mit musikalischen Mitteln eine Story zu erzählen.. sehr interessant und außergewöhnlich.
First release for new Berlin based label PONG by P. SCHEFFNER who already created music for several film-productions. This work has Hoerspiel-like qualities, like the “cinema pour l’oreille”-series.

“For „fon" Scheffner developed for the first time a soundtrack without a film. Over and over modified soundscapes and acoustic „accidents", recorded and re-arranged in analog and digital technology, have been created as a subtle drama structure, which the six different tracks follow without narrating a clear story. Comfortably situated in the electronic home after a while a certain restlessness is noticed by the inhabitant. The attempt to contact the outside becomes a journey through ether waves and wires and gets stuck between beats and loops. A real outside world seems more and more unlikely to exist. The cinemascope-version of the story could be totallly different: A catastropy has happened in a small town, USA. A single survivor is sitting in his detached family house, seeking desperately for signs of life. In this version the hero would probably leave the city at last. Close Up. It is raining. Long fade out.” [press release]
