Album Review

Faust /Daumenbruch

carsonstreet   3/7/2022   A Library, CD

Faust’s work is oriented around dissonance, improvisation, and experimental electronic approaches, and has influenced subsequent ambient and industrial music.They are considered a central act of West Germany’s 1970s krautrock movement. The basic tracks on Daumenbruch were recorded by Zappi W. Diermaier, Dirk Dresselhaus and Elke Drapatz in Dirk’s studio. They were sent online as rough mixes to the individual musicians who recorded their overdubs independently, not knowing what the other ones would do and sent them back. This method created a result of interesting overlays, patterns and links. The recordings were mixed by Dirk Dresselhaus and Zappi W. Diermaier at the studio ZONE in Berlin. Three long pieces evolved, whose meditative industrial character is based completely on instant composition. Released January 21, 2022.
