Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Wolfgang Seidel – Materiaal 054︱exRotaprint Sessions 20220415

Materiaal Series, Vol. 054

On April 15, 2022, Bernhard and Wolfgang Seidel met for a recording session in Wolfgang’s studio that is situated in a former printing press manufacturing plant in Berlin’s Wedding district.

Wolfgang’s studio is not only equipped with a wide range of electronic musical instruments, but also various acoustic percussion instruments and all kinds of sound sources are ready miked and prepared for recordings at any time. And so, the recording session took place in a very focussed mood, and it then resulted into something that has quite a narrational and heteromorphic flow.

The recordings were mixed by Wolfgang. For the second piece he later overdubbed additional drums. Also, the length of the two tracks is intentionally set to suggest a vinyl release.

Christine Kriegerowski depicted the musicians as stylites or pillar-saints. Stylites are a type of Christian ascetic who lives on pillars, they believe that the mortification of their bodies would help ensure the salvation of their souls.
This image of the two musicians as pillar-saints is of course not without self-irony and alludes to how much musicians of this genre are on a lost cause.

Volker Lankow & Bernhard Wöstheinrich – Creatures In Haunting Cities

“Creatures In Haunting Cities” is a very personal take by Volker Lankow on the release & graphic short story “Undesirable Creatures”
For the Live Stream performance that was set for the release of this project the music were broken down into individual tracks and elements so that Volker could play around re-arrange and re-mix the whole music in his very personal ambient style.

“Undesirable Creatures”, the initial release to “Creatures In Haunting Cities”, is a graphic short story of a magician stranded in a post-war Moscow, accompanied by a music soundtrack that embraces, enhances and underscores the eerie mood of the chapters much like a movie score.

Tracks 1 – 3: Volker Lankow: Soundscapes, Drones & Samples Fragements and indivudual tracks composed by Bernhard Wöstheinrich.
Track 4: Electronics by Volker Lankow and Bernhard Wöstheinrich
