strom noir
the white colour of the clouds c46
very first intention was to come up with the tape release consisting of tracks made by using solely guitar resonances. so few tracks are based, almost purely, on the sound fragments which were recorded in a way that i started to record couple of seconds, even minutes, after the last tone was played. on the other hand, there are “more regular” tracks which are based on a simple melody, repeated during the entire track. i have always had some kind of fondness for such tracks, there is some kind of thrill which puts listener into an expectation of the change which, at the end, does not come. finally i've recorded tracks that represent some kind of conjunction of what one can hear on the album, abstract fragments as well as melodic parts. as the result, the white colour of the clouds represents probably the most conceptualized release I have ever made.
masterfully crafted reverberating guitar drones that keeps no soul untouched. everybody needs some drone pillow from time to time, don't you?

an elm
fly pan elm c38

"fly pan elm" is a reaction to the positive feedback on it's predecessor, "a nightmare, an elm street", which was originally planned to be a one-off. yet "fly pan elm" picks a retro-charme inflated picture, and colours it with it's own paint of synthesizer melodies. memories of the peak of trans atlantic flights are nestled in sounds of subtle irony. put your seat back in a horizontal position.
uplifting synthesizers workouts for your sofa surfings. draw your ticket and buy this tape!

guenter schlienz 
book of dreams 
12"
"book of dreams" was inspired by notes about dreams i wrote down shortly after i woke up from my sleep. in those strange moments between phantasy and reality, when you can still remember the images and feelings of the dream before they are rubbed off by daytime thoughts and troubles. the compositions which can be heard on this album trying to recapture those images and feelings, mixed with a second thought, kind of a sober interpretation of the sometimes wild and furious adventures with somnia.
 modular synth stuff for inner explorations.
