Reviews | By Holger Adam / testcard #25: Kritik Draussen vor der Tür: Field-Recordings und Sound-Art von Gruenrekorder In der letzten Gruenrekorder-Kolumne war ja bereits die Rede davon, dass man ziemlich herum kommt mit den Ohren, wenn man sich mit den CDs des Labels beschäftigt, und das war natürlich ausschließlich positiv gemeint.

  Review | By Aurelio Cianciotta / Neural Angus Carlyle | In The Shadow Of The Silent Mountain While leafing through the essential but elegant booklet of In The Shadow Of The Silent Mountain and starting “Acqua Bianca”, the first of 8 files/compositions present in this digital album by Angus Carlyle for Gruenrekorder, we soon […]

  Review | By textura It’s fitting that these Gruenrekorder releases by Katharina Klement and Marc Namblard respectively appear as part of the label’s Sound Art Series and Field Recording Series: peripheries is very much a highly personalized sound portrait the artist fashioned of Belgrade, whereas F. Guyana is a relatively undoctored set of field […]

  Review | By Łukasz Komła / Nowamuzyka.pl Katharina Klement | peripheries Austriacka eksperymentatorka wybrała się do Belgradu, żeby odpowiedzieć sobie na kilka pytań związanych z fonosferą tego miejsca. Katharina Klement pochodzi z jakże zasłużonego dla historii muzyki współczesnej miasta Graz, choć obecnie mieszka w Wiedniu. Kompozytorka, pianistka i improwizatorka często w swoich kompozycjach wykorzystuje […]

  Review | By Łukasz Komła / Nowamuzyka.pl Marc Namblard | F.Guyana Jesteście ciekawi jakie odgłosy wydaje świat przyrody Gujany Francuskiej? Odkodowywanie dźwięków natury (przynajmniej w moim rozumieniu) to każdorazowo fascynujący proces, najczęściej będący czymś więcej niż tylko wsłuchiwaniem się w nocne dialogi hord świerszczy, cykad, małp czy ptaków. Niech soundtrackiem do takowych eksploracji będzie […]

  Review | By Richard Allen / a closer listen Katharina Klement | peripheries What comes to mind when you think of Belgrade? Katharina Klement went on a nine-week mission to discover the sound of the city, and came away with a multitude of answers. peripheries plays like a sonic photo album, the images more […]

  Review | By Aurelio Cianciotta / Neural Mikel R. Nieto | Dark Sound In the product page on the label’s website the description of this release ends with this warning: “Partially legible.

Siefert & Lasse-Marc Riek’s “rhein_strom von der rheinquelle bis hafen Karlsruhe”. Nicely merging the natural with the industrial tinged landscape the sound truly has […]

  Review | By Beach Sloth Christina Kubisch & Eckehard Güther | Unter Grund Finding the mysticism in everyday life, Christina Kubisch & Eckehard Güther sculpt elaborate electro-acoustic field recordings with “Unter Grund”. Quite lush in terms of their sonic detail not a single element goes unnoticed. Much of the sound has a journey-like quality […]

  Review | By Duncan Simpson / Musique Machine R. Schwarz | The Scale Of Things Gruenrekorder has been one of my favourite labels of the last few years. Their output traces a line from socio-political academic works like Hein Schoer’s remarkable The Sounding Museum to documentary style field recordings and in this case, complex, […]
