Item Description
Ventil was formed in 2014 by Peter Kutin & Florian Kindlinger. Having previously worked together in the drone ensemble Dirac, releasing acclaimed
records for labels such as the Japanese Spekk, Kutin & Kindlinger founded Ventil to expand their musical aesthetic. Collaborating with instrumentalists
(in this case, drums and synths), they create an intense form of music that places itself somewhere between industrial, techno and ambient. Ventil is the German expression for 'valve' a device that releases pressure when opened; 'pressure' being the resistance against a limitation of space. Feeling limited within the artistic environment of the Vienna experimental music scene, Ventil was born in an isolated studio in the countryside, where the four musicians escaped to live and do primarily one thing: concentrate and create. As a result, the record is a unique sound that stands out from what is usually produced within the alpine nation of Austria. As if Varese co-operated with the Swans.
Electro-acoustic music melts into a live band, sometimes hitting it hard, harsh and loud, but never losing focus on the essentials. Inbetween captivating structures of electronic sound architecture, Ventil drummer Katharina Ernst, uses minimal, yet effective choices of percussive signals, perfectly filling the gaps that the compositions offer. Ernst helps to push the sound into new territory, whilst delicate low-end bass often provides a solid foundation. The listener is sucked in and taken on an intense ride through different sonic corridors, until at last, after all the stones have been smashed to pieces, a lonesome synthesizer tune of obscure beauty leaves you once again alone.
This LP was produced entirely at their remote studio in the outer reaches of Austria's rural areas, a peculiar place internationallyb known (if at all) for flooding catastrophes and stories of raccoon suicide. Far from the city's gossip and ego battles, away from the clubs and parties, leaving only a solitude and space to focus on producing music.
The mastering of the LP was done by Douglas Henderson.
Ventil are Peter Kutin (electronics, guitar), Florian Kindlinger (electronics, guitar, basssynth), Michael Lahner (synthesizers, electronics), Katharina Ernst (drums), Conny Zenk (light structures at live shows).
