afoam’s endlessly delayed follow-up to agr ep and aetherische. hyphens lost and re-gained. a stage of principle at matter has been reached. it did not take 15 years to finish, but 15 years have passed since the times of the ambient basement.
15 years of zahnbeitel. brand new, yet historic release by zahnbeitel. material from the early days in a recent mix. originally, zahnbeitel wanted to release an album n (earlier title klangereignisse), containing ultra-short tracks by doering/mueller/schaefer to be played in random order. the material was never released. also, the recordings for the planned album zahnfleischtrieb (earlier title sickrose) were mostly never released. in 2004/2005, efforts for a longform edit of the early material for zahnbeitel’s 10th aniversary were also dropped. to celebrate 15 years of zahnbeitel (1995-2010), sickroseXV was finally finished.
subtle noise sessions recorded by schaefer in 1999 for a unique copy edition of strepitus e.p. in 2009, we bought back the only copy in an auction for the 10th anniversary of strepitus and now release the material.
be prepared for buran to douse you in a torrent of eardrum ripping cataracts of sheer noise rife with loads of subtle nuances, and even catchy industrial-happy rhythms. imagine fierce machinery relentlessly pulling it off on top of antarctic ice shelfs torn apart by unimaginable force while neutrinos shower the surface of the mediterranean sea. what you hear is in fact the background noise of the mediterranean sea at an approximate depth of 6500 ft., disrupted by the occasional neutrino. these sounds are, as customary with zahnbeitel projects, llwmed to the max. buran is russian for blizzard, by the way. this recording is dedicated to the russian space shuttle of the same name.
