from liner notes :

In December 1984 musicians from different countries and the 'Tanzforum der Oper/Köln' met in the almost 100 years old drinking water tank SEVERIN, located on the southside of Cologne, for an exceptional music and dance project.
The recordings of this compact disc testify for the unique acoustics of this subterranean colonnade. All takes have only been recorded with microphones distributed throughout the tank, without using any additional studio effect equipment."

The water reservoir was empty for 2 years for construction works. The longest audible reverb recorded at the empty tank lasts approximately 45 seconds. After the project the water tank was flooded again with about 20 million litres of drinking water.

Margot, I think track 11 is broken towards the end. Twice downloaded, I got a CRC error both times.

It is a wonderful album, though. Reminds me of Nigel Charles Halfhide but also of Stephan Micus's music that I am very fond of.

This is *transcendent,* Margot. Thank you so much!

Margot said...

Thank you my friends for the warm feedback to this album.

I re-uploaded track 11 :)

thank you, you aptly described my feelings for this album - "warm".


ps: even though I am having some second thoughts - after all, all it is is a pick'n'mix of different musics with a reveeeeerb. Yet they are impressed with a common quality which somehow turns the tracks into a conglomerate rather than a collection.
