released July 1, 2016 | Materiaal Series, Part VIII | On March 25, 2016, Gaston Klares and Bernhard Wöstheinrich met in the ‘Radio Modul’ basement studio in Berlin-Kreuzberg for an elaborate recording session in between stacks of their electronic appliances.
From 1992 until 2014 Gaston Klares was the host of the well-established Luxembourgian Electronic Music radio show “Silent Running” (Radio ARA). He is still an active steam punk artisan and a spaced-out synth-wizard.
In these sessions the two like-minded fellows take a deep bow to the fore-mothers and -fathers of the movement of traditional electronic music and drift about in deep pulsating electronic ostinatos and coalescing soundscapes.
The title and the track names of this release are referencing the names of native tribes from the Northwest American Coast.
