Asmus Tietchens: Dämmerattacke

This 1997 album from Asmus Tietchens starts out with a 23-minute glowing orb drone accompanied by rowing boat sounds. The rest of the tracks are shorter, and maybe not quite as panoramic, but they’re still quite stunning in their minimalism and subtlety, exploring higher frequencies (and lower ones, as on bonus track “Schlagschatten”) as well as more fluid tones and textures. Tietchen’s early-’80s synth pop releases on Sky are his most accessible works, but as far as his purely experimental recordings, this is one of his better ones.
