DIGITAL RELEASE: “INVINCIBLE VIBRATIONS”
CD: “INTUITION AND ITS CONSEQUENCES”
“With this debut release Dok Gregory, Peter Principle, Karl Scholz, Jeremy Slater and Wolfgang von Stuermer (aka WvS) exhibit a new stream of collective spontaneous compositions at the intersection of concepts stemming from Cage’s indeterminacy, Stockhausen’s Intuitive Music, as well as early psychedelic sound. Ocean waves of textured, mostly electronic sound palettes form an integrated music that is beyond specific styles, but doesn’t deny any of them, as it crosses the sensitivity of great improvisors with the experimentation of early electronics pioneers. The group draws inspirations from sources as diverse as ambient music, European electronic avant-garde, dark noise, Xenakis’ computer music, and space rock – redefining psychedelic music for the 21st century.”
