More Info

Re-Release dieses Klassikers von 1993 (ND CD 003) des im Jahre 2002 verstorbenen Deutsch-Australiers - ein dunkles, dichtes Werk mit elektro-akustischen Qualitten, viele konkrete Gerusche & Sounds & Cut-ups, meist undefinierbar, aber voll von unheimlich beseeltem maschinellen Leben... absolut packend!

"The concept of aurally conveying the horror of a gas chamber was realised through field recordings in an abandoned electrical power station in Brisbane in 1992. The sounds are grating and harsh, a mixture of field recordings and electronic manipulations. One can rarely pinpoint a location or action but the images the sounds conjure up are of all sorts of nefarious activites related to death by machinery. The sleeve notes take you into the horror that is the Calcutta Gas Chamber. A beautifully composed and produced CD, completely remastered and re-packaged." [label press release]
