rausch.

Wolfgang Voigt’s music as Gas is about nostalgia and childhood, based on his memories of wandering the forests around Cologne. Built around a deep, steady thrum and orchestral samples, the music has a soft, cocooned feel to it, as if enclosed by coniferous trees and mossy ground. When Voigt revived the project with last year’s Narkopop, the idea was the same, but the delivery was different: the music felt darker, and some fencing could be seen on the cover’s otherwise natural landscape. It was meant to show, perhaps, man beginning to impose on the sanctity of the forest. The album reflected a kind of lost innocence. Though Rausch’s cover features no such intrusions, the music has a new, rumbling sort of dread to it. Across the hour-long LP, split into seven seamless movements, Voigt introduces dissonance and anxiety into a world that once seemed welcoming. „

Rausch erschien am 17. Mai. Ob ich das Album bis heute gehört habe? Wahrscheinlich nicht, folgt aber ganz sicher.
