Islandic Tapes

Finally realized after being a pipe dream for a few years, Günter Schlienz presents „Icelandic Tapes“. With album thirty-something, Schlienz literally explores new places: this is „journey music“ in a literal sense. Schlienz and his partner Hanno Braun actually recorded the piece in the loneliness of Iceland’s high plateaus, nearby active volcanos and in the midst of stony deserts – hence the title (no fraud!). Batteries, synthesizers, cameras and good shoes were the main studio equipment trying to capture the unknown emptiness of this dark, warm and bleak breathtaking landscape in this most remote European country. Most of these sounds were recorded in the open, so „Icelandic Tapes“ takes you on a field trip into the vastness of the north.
Inside the black box of your mind there’s always something beautiful to explore.
