Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Alexander Paul Dowerk – Materiaal 053︱Vault Amusement 20220212

Materiaal Series, Vol. 053

On February 12, 2022, Alexander Paul Dowerk, a Berlin-based music producer, composer and touch guitarist, was invited to a Materiaal recording session at the Secret Vault Studio in Kreuzberg, Berlin.
The recordings resulted in a complex and powerful interplay between Bernhard and Alexander, rich in variety. Alexander brought a strong sense of detail and groove with complex rhythmical structures to Bernhard’s impromtu electronica madness.

Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Volker Lankow – Materiaal 052︱Studio Session 20210812

Materiaal Series, Vol. 052

A set of impromptu performed electronic music, recorded on August 12, 2021 in Berlin, Germany.

It’s August 2021, and the live public music scene is still in a state of total gridlock. But for a musician it also doesn’t seem to be an appropriate reaction to stop making music altogether. Hoping for better times, I invited Volker to my studio for a recording session.

TaboTago – Sessions 008 – 20211014 Cloister Vault

A studio session recorded on October 14, 2021, Berlin, Germany.
The session was recorded in one go, with no overdubs and pre-arrangements.


The title of this Session release is inspired by the cloister vault at the Magdeburg Cathedral.
The Magdeburger Dom survived the trials and tribulations of the centuries. The cathedral has a cloister that connects to the south side of the building like a kind of corridor or gallery.
Walking attentively through this ambulatory, one can feel the reverberations of the many events that have unfolded around this spiritual and unique place, which is yet seems to be such a peaceful place right in the midst of a busy city.

For the last six years, various recordings of live performances, collaborative sessions and sonic experiments, as well as older music that has not yet been released have been released as part of the Materiaal Series. The Materiaal Series is meant to be unplanned, improvised, and raw; nonetheless, the caliber of the recordings is on par with those of typical studio releases as each release is carefully edited and mastered.
This current 50th release is a set of impromptu performed electronic music, recorded in one pass at July 30, 2021, in Berlin, Germany. It embraces a completely new live composition technique: a cutting-edge mix of generative systems and improvisation developed for musical space travels.

Artist Christine Kriegerowski provides the visuals for the Materiaal Series, freely channeling the music while creating via colored pencils, pens, watercolors, or pictures identifying with the creation of the music, a place, or an anecdote inspired by her own listening experience. This time she has assembled many godmothers and godfathers – of her drawings and of Bernhard’s music – in a group picture over the image of a golden wedding anniversary in the 1950s.
