More Info

N is one of the most profiled German drone / ambient artists - being active since the early 1990s he has released more than 50 records. On "Tremonia" he returns with the idea to picture a certain place musically - his approach goes further than before, using field-recordings for the first time. "Tremonia" is located under a row of 17 railway-bridges very close to the central station of Dortmund. Those bridges are played by the trains entering and leaving and also give house to an unknown number of homeless people. All these impressions can be heard on the field recordings of "Tremonia" taken in the early morning hours. Technically the record still sticks to N's "no overdub" rule with solo recordings: The field recordings were played over a third amplifier while recording the guitars, thus the mix was done live. Part of the tracks had been selected by Urbane Knste Ruhr for a compilation of places described by music.
