Soft Left Onto Westland
by Boris Hauf
mosz 008 - 2005
Boris Hauf, born 1974 in UK, currently living in Berlin, as founder of EFZEG (Boris Hauf, Burkhard Stangl, Dieb13, Billy Roisz, Martin Siewert), part- time member of Chicago based bands TVpow and Lozenge, he is better known as improvising musician - he works with acoustic (mainly saxophone) and electronic instruments. Other works/projects include comissioned compositions for international festivals, radio- & tv-stations, film, ensembles, solists, performers and theaters. \'Soft Left Onto Westland\' [mosz008] is the label\'s 6th release. Like Martin Siewert, Boris Hauf - primarily introduced and known as an improv musician - produced a rather nontypical CD on Mosz which is actually \'sax-free\' and only made of electronic sounds ranging from very subtle and minimal to kind of techno-like. Skilful and with great musicality Hauf mounted all these samples to a surprising result, meaning a groovy, funky and atmospheric album with some ambient parts in-between. \'Soft Left Onto Westland\' is another kind of \'pop\' release on Mosz which takes the listener to a relaxed state without being cheesy just one single second.
