about

The science fiction yearning for utopia sometimes falls into dystopian space. Kurt Liedwart with Ken Ganfield and Petr Vrba tried to follow the impulse of getting to the ideal world but their most powerful and fearful predictions and prophesies came to the fore and “Something Wrong There” happened all the time. Liedwart recently became dissatisfied with the improvisation’s disability to create sonically fresh sound worlds and completely remixed the studio recordings. Did it prevent him from making something wrong here? Try to guess. What you hear is a combination of elements of trogged-out electronic psychedelia with a deadly serious mid-European minimalism and dreamy modal ambient improvisations that owe more to the outer limits of cutting-edge electronic music and burnt-out free music from Germany. Pulpy quasi-cinematic tension, blasts of voidal motorik, raptures of psychedelic intensity, these dangerously seductive imagery exists in the space between the serious and the banal, science and mysticism, experiment and pop, knowledge and intuition, mastership and failure.
