Preorder: new THOMAS KÖNER album + BERSARIN QUARTETT s/t reissue + mailorder news


This time we're pleased to present you the new Thomas Köner album called „Tiento De Las Nieves“ – a 68 minutes long single piece using the piano as an instrument, in an un-deconstructed way. Due to the continual request we're also offering a reissue of the classic Bersarin Quartett s/t debut. The clear gold vinyl version is limited to 350 pieces.

Our Polish buddy Kuba Kapsa (head of the Contemporary Noise Sextet) started a new project. We're going to release his first record with compositions for 10 classic instruments called "Vantdraught 10" in February 2015. The live ensemble will play the first concerts from October 2014 on.


We've now added the remaining Denovali Swingfest Essen titles to the store (Shirts, art print, bags). We've beyond that received the new Cut Hands, new The Body split LP, Nightmares On Wax Vinyl reissues, Ben Frost vinyl represses, new Ennio Morricone vinyl, new Balmorhea, new Pharmakon, new Vessel, new Flying Lotus etc.

Thanks a lot


Thomas Köner, explorer, multimedia artist, dark ambient pioneer. Over his long, much celebrated career, he has worked between audiovisual installation works, sound art, minimal soundscapes, and as one half of Porter Ricks. Among others, he has composed film soundtracks and music to accompany historic silent films for the Louvre Museum and the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, who called him a major innovator in the contemporary music scene. Tiento is a form of keyboard-based music originating in Spain. In his past discography, Thomas Köner has mostly used the piano in a barely recognisable way, as one element of many. However, after a particular radical experience he found himself caught with the piano in his focus, with this rigid instrument which has been developed and solidified in the 17th century just to enslave composers and musicians for centuries to come. Thus, it could come as a surprise for those familiar with Köner's work and attitude, that in his first tiento to be released -- "Tiento de las Nieves" ("snow-tiento") -- he uses the piano, as an instrument, in an un-deconstructed way.

To escape and handle the rigidity of the piano, Köner uses his distinctive ansatz to understand music rather as something filling the space of the temporal dimension than as a succession of multi-layered sounds. For him the musical score of any of his pieces is a priori meaningless, and receives meaning only by placing the notes and sounds at particular points in time in a way which is forced upon them by their inner logic. Like atoms in a particular molecule, these notes ought to have a specific distance and order dictated by certain laws, they might have to occur repeatedly, in order for the musical piece to be physically stable and complete, and thus to be able to exist continuously. For this reason, "Tiento de las Nieves" turned out to be a 68-minute long single piece. Upon producing this tiento, Thomas Köner had a strong and clear sensation of a large white space. Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen has always been an important figure for Köner. In a quote from his expedition account 'Farthest North', Nansen constructs a synthesis between love and snow. With this piece Köner builds a bridge between his associated sensation of a large white space and the snowy, foggy landscapes known to him from his various own expeditions, in a quasi dialectic process.

The classic debut album of Bersarin Quartett finally repressed - vinyl as limited gold edition.

“It's rare that I'm able to give an album my fullest recommendation without trepidation. (...) Bersarin Quartett is one such album. There's nary a misstep, every potential danger has been avoided and smoothed out to present the optimal audio experience for your dollar. (...) Something this good can't possibly be real." The Silent Ballet (8.5/ 10)

So yes, references to Stars Of The Lid, Ulver's Perdition City, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore and Cinematic Orchestra are fully justified. (...) An excellent debut album, great for nocturnal couch consumption, closing your eyes and dreaming away. (...) Slickly produced without becoming becoming empty chillout fastfood, Bersarin Quartett does what it promises and does it well and a recommendation for everyone into the bands I mentioned earlier. Musique Machine (5/ 5)

This music could be written on a lonely island or onboard of a spaceship looking on our planet. Time becomes a new unit and feelings become more weight. This is a real great album that owns a special atmosphere and a nonesuch orchestral sound. Wonderful tracks with wonderful titles that leave the listener with a feeling of freedom and contentment. A wonderful perfect 10. Cuemix (10/ 10)

Make no mistake, Bersarin Quartett is an incredible release in the electronica world, but one that fans of many other genres will enjoy. Sputnikmusic (4.5/ 5)
