KLANGWART - BOGOTA (LP)


"Minimalism and understatement are key elements of the Klangwart project, founded more than 20 years ago by musician and author Timo Reuber and DJ and Staubgold label manager Markus Detmer. Every few years, seemingly coming out of nowhere, the duo release a consistently critically acclaimed Klangwart album, give a couple of concerts, and disappear once again. This might sound of harakiri, as it contradicts all common rules of the music market. But behind it lies a profound longing for veracious expression on the border between avantgarde and entertainment. In 2014, Klangwart travelled to the Colombian capital in order to record the material for "Bogota" with protagonists of the local music scene: Damian Ponce (drums), Cesar Quevedo (bass) and Eblis Alvarez (violoncello), members of The Meridian Brothers, and singers Juanita and Valentina Anez Rothmann a.k.a. Las Anez. The result is Klangwart's trademark sound permeated by a Latin American pulse and pitch. Collectively improvised and recorded in a matter of days, the raw material was later edited and mixed by Reuber at the Inkiek-Studio in Cologne. Joseph Suchy added guitar overdubs and mastered the album." (label info) CD version included
