released July 18, 2016


The next two releases contain music by label boss Sascha Stadlmeier, whom we also know as Emerge. On the first release, a duet with Martin Freund on drums, they call themselves Omphalocele, maybe as to indicate this is a more permanent collaboration. The thirty-five minutes of 'I' were recorded in concert at Hutfabrik Lembert in Augsburg, in September last year. The drum kit is reduced to just a few toms and Freund taps a very minimal rhythm, rolling rather than steady pulsating beat. It is a bit slow, but it works quite well with the samples that Emerge is spinning on top. He takes the lead by applying different samples and sound effects on top of that steady beat. For once this is not the kind of improvisation that bounces in all directions and to end with a noise blast, but it stays pretty much on the same level throughout the whole piece and that adds a certain meditative feel to it. Quite a winner this one.




drum / electronic zusammenarbeit, live aufgenommen ind er „hutfabrik lembert“, augsburg.
und falls es tatsächlich so war wie es sich anhört, ist martin freund, der schlagzeuger, der held des abends gewesen. unfassbare stoik rules, während emerge dazu grob-teilchenzerstäubung betreibt. beim reinen hören beginnt man(n + frau) irgendwann zu hoffen, dass der drummer noch irgendetwas anderes gemacht hat, machen konnte und durfte als dieses endlose wiederholen einfachster rhytmik... aber; irgendwie: gerade das macht nicht wenig des reizes aus. und, ehrlich gesagt: mit einem drum“sound“ wie diesem, ohne höhen, allein tiefmittig-dumpf, steigert sich die surrealität des gesamten sogar noch um einiges... und am ende steht eine art hypnose in grau. oder so.

schöne grüße
