Quintessenz 16:18


On “Elektronik / Erlösung” the Cologne-based kraut jazz group C.A.R. plunge deep into their collection of synthesizers, tape delays and space echoes to take a journey inwards in the form of two extended improvised musical pieces.

The title track starts off as an exercise in musique concrete, slowly and steadily pulling the listener into a dizzying vortex of sound and noise, until eventually finding sonic redemption in an extensive percussive spaced-out coda.

Second tune “Quintessenz” is no less immersive, wandering through soothing drones of sound, keeping the listener captivated by its constantly evolving flickering synth sounds and vocal melodies, subtly building in complexity and urgency as it evolves.

Cover artwork by Frankfurt-based artist Tina Kohlmann. A printed poster (50 × 70 cm) showing Alteration of the Gap will be available here on Bandcamp.

A limited edition of hand-bleached pillowcases produced by the artist will available from 26 February via our website and here on our Bandcamp shop.
