Christina Kubisch / Peter Kutin / Florian Kindlinger - Decomposition 2LP 26878
'Decomposition – I – III' is an experience of sonic realities and aural layers that usually remain undetected by our perception. (…) The presented record holds acoustic parables that cause the listener to reflect upon himself. Starting with recordings from the Atacama, the driest desert on earth, 'Absence' presents a piece of abstract, desolate music that hauntingly extends dark and bizarre over two sides of the record. A brute inferno of noise, recorded inside a telescope during its calibration, eventually dissolves into the surge of the Pacific Ocean. In between, salt-crystals crack through the sunset, erosion gnaws at empty mining villages, nature plays with leftovers of civilization and the wind blows through neglected cemeteries.

The second part – 'Introspection' starts with a harsh walk over a snowy field, suddenly collapsing into silence. One is thrown into the deep seclusion of a glacial crevasse whose inherent resonances slowly build up – following the concept of Alvin Luciers 'I am sitting in a room'. This creates an odd acoustic maelstrom, driven by a peculiar threat that won’t let go.

'Illusion', the final part, was recorded in Las Vegas in cooperation with German sound artist Christina Kubisch. The city is used as a big synthesizer creating an opulent work in an orchestral manner, yet still following the documentary path. Kubisch recorded electromagnetic signals all over the city, which later on were arranged by Peter Kutin in his studio.
