C-Schulz & Hajsch
This album - which necessarily had to go untitled - represents a new, complex music, realized through clearly structured arrangements of microtonal material. It blends accoustic instruments (tuba, harmonium, guitar and clarinet, among others) with field recordings and concrete sounds. Still, the studio remains the most important instrument. So that this quiet, gently prodding music takes on surprising depth and dimensionality. Call it Ambient, but it\'s far from the over-simplifications.
Turning their back on the scene\'s bustling activities, and focussing on a reduced set of musical parameters, has given C-Schulz & Hajsch the possiblitiy to take up and extend Cologne\'s long-standing tradition of sound research.
