PREORDER: new records of WAELDER and ORSON HENTSCHEL


#1

Hey.

The latest denovali roster addition Waelder returns with the second album called “Non Places”. A church organ, detuned in manuals and registers, a vacuum cleaner embedded in the sound of a piano, and precisely programmed patterns of electronic devices are just a few of the elements found on the album. What happens and sounds is an experiment of space, body, form and purpose.

Only six months after his sophomore album, which has showcased a “tense repetition of short phrases, often building big, dramatic pieces starting with a single stuck-in-the-machine sound” (Decoder) and an “analogue cyber trip-hop of an impressive depth of focus as an acoustic furniture for an apocalypse lounge” (Groove), Orson Hentschel returns with a two-piece EP showcasing yet another aspect of his musical spectrum.

ORSON HENTSCHEL · FACADES CD | 10’’ | DIGITAL

Only six months after his sophomore album, which has showcased a “tense repetition of short phrases, often building big, dramatic pieces starting with a single stuck-in-the-machine sound” (Decoder) and an “analogue cyber trip-hop of an impressive depth of focus as an acoustic furniture for an apocalypse lounge” (Groove), Hentschel returns with a two-piece EP showcasing yet another aspect of his musical spectrum. While the first two albums featured only instrumental tracks, “Facades” are the first two pieces in which Orson Hentschel works with text as a main musical element for his composition, although he approaches vocals from a rather particular perspective.

The idea for Facades was born at a time when Hentschel was struggling with a writer’s block for several days in a row. He realised that just writing about nothing was the only honest way for him to express himself through text as a medium. After doing some research on the subject he found John Cage’s “Lecture on nothing” which has appeared in the book “Silence” (1961). This encouraged him to work out his idea and he wrote a German text which then Danhee Joe, an accidental acquaintance of his, translated into Korean and spoke with her warm voice. Thus Orson Hentschel used the text in the same way as he uses any sound material - it is transformed into something else, it is being alienated. The spoken words are embedded in repetitive and minimal-minded electronic sound layers which even penetrate primordial technoid territories. However, sticking to his trademark long arcs of suspense, the listener has to wait until the last two minutes of the second track for the first, cathartic beat.

WAELDER · NON PLACES CD | 12’’ | DIGITAL

Wælder are moving between ambient, industrial and pop. Their rhythms and soundscapes of voices, obscure samples and distorted field-recordings build spaces of barren material and soft ground, which teem and crawl - strange and harmonious. To present their music live, Wælder are mixing analogue and digital effects with guitar, synthesizers, vocals and loops. Rhythms and atmospheres blur, dissolve and re-assemble. Their live shows are often framed by visuals, generated in collaboration with various visual artists.

Founded 2013 in Vienna by Moritz Nahold and Jan Preißler, Wælder has since played numerous concerts, collaborated with various artists and composed music for theatre, film and installations. In addition to their EPs ‘Firn’ and ‘&’ they released ‘Anachronie’ in 2015 on the label Kreismusik. Wælder’s second album ‘Non Places’ will be released on 26.01.2018 via Denovali Records.

Non Places was recorded and produced in different locations at different times in Vienna and Berlin. Wælder experimented independently with their tracks, later reassembling them over the internet. The eight pieces tell this process and at the same time create an independent perspective on the process of their creation. A church organ, detuned in manuals and registers, a vacuum cleaner embedded in the sound of a piano, and precisely programmed patterns of electronic devices are just a few of the elements found on the album. The name Non Places comes from the eponymous publication Non-Lieux (Eng. non-places) by the French anthropologist Marc Augé. By means of the happenings in the specific space of Vienna / Berlin and the exchange about the nonspecific space of the Internet, the countless server rooms crossed by shared audio data have been interpreted as monofunctional places, without relation and history. If music and the process of creation are two different places, then Non Places is the gap-bridging perspective. What happens and sounds is an experiment of space, body, form and purpose.
