Andreas O. Hirsch: Summe 1
12 inch officially released on May 7, 2015

Summe 1


press

Obwohl auf ‘Summe 1′ nichts konventionell arrangiert ist, die Stücke vielmehr auf avancierten Klangversuchen fußen, ist die Musik sehr anschaulich geraten, nicht wuchtig und schroff, sondern immer gut durchhörbar, offen und skizzenhaft, wie eine Einladung, sich der Reise ins Innere zu stellen.
Felix Klopothek / Stadtrevue

Seems this Cologne-based artist studied film as his first discipline, and it’s possible a certain cinematic sense has passed into his first solo release Summe 1 which has been released as a very nice and not-overlong slice of 12-inch vinyl. On it, he’s shooting for some sense of other-worldly travel, the voyager surveying the more exotic and remote parts of the globe – some tracks do indeed convey “instant jungle danger” or “blistering desert heat” if viewed as a slightly unusual form of library music. You’ve only got to look at the cover art also, with its faux-naif imaginary maps, where important landmarks (or imagined connections between such landmarks) are apparently designated with kitchen implements, such as four egg whisks and a funnel.
Ed Pinsent / The Sound Projector

Poco più di trentacinque minuti di musica che mescolano visioni da quarto mondo alla My Life in The Bush of Ghost con un’attitudine naif degna del più visionario Felix Kubin. Brian Eno se ne innamorerebbe all’istante.
Roberto Mandolini / Rockerilla

Andreas Oskar Hirsch prend nos sens pour les plonger dans un magma de viscéralité mouvante, voyage incessant entre sonorités ethniques et démarche conceptuelle à l’immédiateté accrocheuse, bain bouillonnant de textures acoustiques et de synthétique climatique, d’allers-retours sur des cimes escarpées dont chaque conquête est une ode à la liberté.
Roland Torres

Andreas O. Hirsch: Summe 1 
12 inch LP | 180g Vinyl | 14,90€

After numerous concerts and performances throughout the last years, Summe 1 is Andreas O. Hirsch‘s first release on makiphon. The album concentrates on peculiar soundscapes and drony pieces, carefully interwoven by means of pitched harmonicas, electric guitars, mini fans, delays and the electric palm leaf, an electroacoustic invention of the artist. The eight titles evoke a space somewhere between interstellar geography (Maxwell Mountains – a plateau on planet Venus), abstract physics (Teilchenbeschleuniger), botanical scenery and animality: Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature. Sleeve designed by the artist. 300 copies. Mastered by Joseph Suchy.

press

Un maxi aussi extraordinaire qu’intriguant qui aurait figuré si j’en avais fait un, dans mon top 10 de 2014. Sorti donc en ce début d’hiver 2014, ce “Spectodrama” présente trois titres autour de la voix, sur une musique entre électroacoustique et compositions, présentée dans une enveloppe en forme de collages et de musiques industrielles. On croirait, sans aucune mauvaise critique ou intention, cette musique sortie du milieu des arts plastiques. Dans une approche très détachée de ce trio allemand, comme peuvent aussi bien le faire Ezramo sur Corvo Records ou The Jist sur Va fongool. Avec une sacrée touche no-wave qui offre un savoureux mélange à l’ensemble.
