Into this prevailing atmosphere of unease in the face of an uncertain future Pascal Hector drops a record that – given its title – seems to embrace the impending doom ‘n gloom scenario. It’s his first Elfenbeinturm release since “1982 – Pizza, Beer and Smokes”, more than ten years ago. […]
On “Hallo Endzeit” he’s sticking to his guns more than ever before. His love for early electronic music from the likes of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream or Harmonia shines through these recordings as much as his affection for the experimental noise music of the past decade (i.e. Yellow Swans, Emeralds, Skaters etc.). Being part of “the scene” for many, many years (yep, he’s twisting knobs ‘n looping tapes in Datashock since forever) he sure knows his way around a gripping ‘n cinematic piece of electronic music and even if (his or any other) music may not safe the world (quite an embarrassing demand if you think about it): not having any music around doesn’t help for sure. So, while coming to terms with all the disorder, turmoil and mayhem why not listen to “Hallo Endzeit”?
