Basically, all of Andreas Bergers very unique tracks are based on speech samples, of which mostly only fragments can be understood or guessed. Robbed of their syntax and semantics, they become musical building blocks from which Berger arranges minimal and finely woven sound worlds with surgical precision, cleverly combining them with electronic sounds and field recordings.
Releaseconcert: October 10th ODEON, Vienna

»The complexities of an android learning to be human are conveyed through Peter Kutin’s stunning, tactile, and sometimes disturbing ambient sound design creating an understanding of these confrontations on an almost subconscious level.«
The Wire Tapper 53, compiled by Shane Woolman, Astrud Steehouder and James Gormley contains a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks from Kœnig, Beatriz Ferreyra, Max Eilbacher, Sheng Jie, Agnès Pe, damelove and others...
Listen to MR. KIWI'S (feat. Sensational) by KŒNIG and get sucked into the wildly radical aesthetics of his new album »MESSING«, which will be released in the beginning of June!
»MESSING« is a courageous statement that rejects straightforward pop and instead shines with artistic freedom and the will for change. The metal, the brass, always reverberates, at times mercilessly pounding on us, driving us forward, resonating.
This compilation is a deep dive into some corners of Vienna’s vivid underground and advanced music-scene. You will find unreleased material from artists we will hear more from in the near future!
If you want to support artists & the scene, buying this sampler is a very pleasant way to do so.
FEAT. ANDREAS BERGER, ROJIN SHARAFI, KŒNIG, PATRIK LECHNER, KATHARINA KLEMENT, KATHARINA ERNST, SCHTUM and many more …
David Schweighart (aka Schrecken) and Peter Kutin composed the original music for Sandra Wollner's latest feature film - The trouble with being born. This soundtrack lives from the interchange of experimental electronic music and classical song structures. The songs appear like islands to hold on to, in a world that has become difficult to grasp.
