Incredible ambient journey born out of a series of improvisations mixing electronic and acoustic instruments to create a rich
palette of sounds and texture.
Favorite track: Szene I - Abschied.
"N°1", is the debut album of Ohrenbetäubende Stille, a collaboration project between Harnes Kretzer and Christian Pensel (Lucid Sky)
The embryo of the project formed experiments in the summer of 2013 with the intention to bring Ambient music "back to stage". Music that breathes, sprouts and grows - beautiful and fleeting as a soap bubble.
The two musicians adapts the grammar of Post-Rock; digital instruments are deliberately avoided. They are replaced instead by electric guitar, Rhodes piano and saxophone (among many others), which are modulated through analog effects - sometimes beyond recognition.
"If you like a combination of retro electronic Kraut experimentation with the organic end of “post”-rock (think Stars of the Lid) touches, this is for you."
