Knurrhahn – So Far

Knurrhahn (Reni Weichselbaum – Recorders, Bernhard Loibner – Electronics) are very proud to announce our first record release.

The three pieces of this digital release have been recorded live at a recording session and live concert in Gustavo Petek’s smallforms series. The recording session and concert to place at Chateau Rouge in Vienna in 2018 and were released by the Vienna-based Label Small Forms . The concept of SmallForms is to use the concert venue in the afternoon for a recording session and to play a concert in the evening of the same day.

We used the recording session and concert as an oportunity to work on our common aesthetical ideas and to further develop the musical communication that is the base of our improvisational duo.

Reni was playing her fantastic Paetzold recorder with its very own timbre, oszillating between other-worldly breathing pulses, percussive rythmical structures and bursts of white noise. This is a great counter-part for electronic sound sources of all kinds and a real pleasure for developing a musical interplay with.

We recorded about 2 hours of material (including the concert in the evening) now we are happy and proud of this release and hope you will enjoy this distinct journey through our very own universe of sound. Recording, Mixing, Editing and Mastering by Gustavo Petek.
