Wall Of Sound: Dones Patterns Noises by Ulrich Krieger on Sub Rosa

Ulrich Krieger - Wall Of Sound: Drones Patterns Noises


  • £15.99

Wall of Sound is a series of CDs about music that invites the listener to indulge themselves in sound. It doesn't guide an audience through a narrative-like a song, but offers the listener slow changing and developing soundscapes, acoustic sculptures, to immerse themselves in. How listeners moves in and through these sounds is up to them: meditative drifting along, focusing on certain small details of sounds, letting themselves be taken away by emerging psycho-acoustic phenomena or going back and forth between listening attitudes. It is a physical and sensual approach to the phenomenon of thick sound worlds; sound waves become physical objects, four-dimensional sonic sculptures to be experienced, bodily and mentally.  

Ulrich Krieger is well known as a saxophone player in contemporary composed and free-improvised music, as well as a composer of chamber music and electronic music. His recent focus lies in the experimental fields and fringes of contemporary pop culture. In addition to arranging works by Merzbow, Throbbing Gristle, Deicide, Terry Riley, Henry Cowell and others for chamber ensemble, he has collaborated with Lou Reed, LaMonte Young, Thomas Köner, DJ Olive, Antoine Beuger, Radu Malfatti, Mario Bertoncini, Michiko Hirayama, and Miriam Marbe, just to name a few.
