The first studio recording Harmonic Decadence
now rediscovered in full length on D.MO Vol.4
Since the release of Robert's official debut album Harmonic Ascendant the world of
the EM community has discussed rumours about a recording called Harmonic
Decadence. Before the first official Vinyl-LP-Release (IC / WEA), Robert started his
first studio recording in the same recording studio Panne-Paulssen (Frankfurt/Main)
in 1978, where also numerous European artists such as Klaus Schulze, Ashra
/Manuel Göttsching and Harald Großkopf have recorded their works.
However, these first recording of Schroeder was rejected by the WEA because it was
too "electronic". At first, the debut album should also be named Harmonic
Decadence. After refusing this first recording of 1978, Schroeder went back to the
studio, where the well-known debut album Harmonic Ascendant arose.
In the meantime the first recording Harmonic Decadence was somehow forgotten.
Some extracts have also been used occasionally, e.g. within the INKEYS interview
from the early 80s. But the complete work of this first recording has been published
never before. The tapes went lost in the depths of the tape archives over the time.
The demand for these recordings is still
great. In the year 2017 Robert searched
through his archive ... and found the old
original recordings as a master copy on a
high quality music cassette. The sound is
not up to date due to its age but has its
charme and now been re-mastered. And of
course this material is something what the
fans are waiting for.
In the context of the D.MO-series (old unreleased recordings of the artist), the original
version of Harmonic Decadence will be released in full length on CD at Spheric Music.
A delight for lovers of Electronic Music of the
late 70s. Have much fun.
NEW !!! ROBERT SCHROEDER / D.MO Vol.4

NM076: GLICE – CIELO (LP)

New album released November 2017 on Narrominded

Amsterdam-based duo GLICE packed up their gear, went to Berlin and recorded a brooding new album with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten. CIELO sees Glice expanding their sound into the realms of post-classical, post-industrial music. In turns beautiful and menacing, CIELO moves past noise music and abstract electronics into strange new territories.

Ruben Braeken (Katadreuffe, Apneu) and Melle Kromhout (Fata ‘el Moustache’ Morgana) worked with Alexander Hacke to bring the music of Glice into the unknown. There is a new clarity to the sound of CIELO, one that reveals new detail and deeper musical undercurrents to their noisy pastures of sound.

 

GLICE
Ruben Braeken is one of the hardest working men in the Amsterdam music scene. Last January, he performed with four different bands at the Dutch underground festival Van Onderen, held during 24 hours in the legendary Paradiso venue.

Melle Kromhout is researching the history of sine waves at the University of Cambridge, after completing his dissertation in Amsterdam on the importance of noise in sound recording.

Together they have been working as Glice for almost a decade. The last few years have seen them accelerate towards the new grounds explored on CIELO.

New Rumpistol EP out today

For Danish composer Rumpistol, two huge driving forces behind his music are the search for beauty and the search for new sounds.

These sonic and aesthetic curiosities, which can be firmly traced back to his self-titled 2003 debut, have taken him to many diverse fields of the electronic landscape, sometimes in collaboration with artists such as  and John LaMonica.

With his debut now something of a classic, praised by everyone from John Peel to Tipper – its melodic yet experimental qualities making IDM accessible – it seems fitting that he returns to his roots in order to take his sound forward.

On Rumpistol’s first full release in 3 years – the instrumental and downtempo qualities of his work are highlighted, while tied within the unifying theme of water.

The result is “Drops”: 6 new tracks rooted in the same open-minded playfulness that characterized his debut, integrating African instruments like the kora and kalimba, HD sound design, and the emotional landscapes of his scores.

PRESS QUOTES

“Forest Drops can’t be compared to anything else because it simply doesn’t sound like anything you normally hear. It is electronic and sound-oriented, but at the same time very melodic. It is surprisingly fun and more care-free than most other music belonging to the electronic world…. Bees with metallic wings pollinate flowers with neon coloured surfaces and space ants slaves in the electric heat. There is both sunshine and drizzle in Rumpistol’s intergalactic rainforest.” – Bands of Tomorrow (DK)

“It’s a new age of New Age music and this time it’s got beats and attitude” – The Slow Music Movement (UK)

“Fine work. Thank you for sharing and all the best with it.” – A La Fu (UK)

“Like the refreshing cool stream of a forest creek on a hot summer day.” – Poule d’Or (DE)

“Nice Work” – Part Time Heroes / Ross Wakefield (UK)

“Rumpistol. Always worth checking out” – James Barrie (UK)
