Von Tsotzhousn explores the general idea of western composition in terms of rhythm and melody and tries to merge the boundaries between a tune, sound and noise. Over the course of several months, the musician and sound artist has rearranged, tested and recorded the four live scores for this EP over and over. A meditative experience that allowed him to gradually unpack the idea and finally reach the point where all pieces fell into place. The result includes three recordings and a bonus track. Modular ambient, growing and evolving musique concrète; a long, deep flow.
Von Tsotzhousn is Veith Michel, a Berlin-based multidisciplinary sound artist and creative producer of audio and visual media. His music creates an immersive environment peppered with on and offline controversies. Von Tsotzhousn has always been on the lookout for ways out of predictability; be it as an avid listener of musique concrète, overrun fan at lightless Autechre performances or the drummer of his mathcore band "Leary" while touring Japan. He has always been interested in jazz funk (Herbie Hancock's "Thrust"), rhythmics (Karlheinz Stockhausen) and electroacoustics, ranging from François Bayle to John Cage.
