Experimental Audio Research - The Köner Experiment (1997)

"If you're home really late at night and you randomly spin the radio dial to see what you pick up, you just might end up falling asleep to burbling, phased-out static. To distinguish such an act from listening to The Köner Experiment might be harder than you think. Here, the Experimental Audio Research collective restrains their avant-garde indie noise rock to come up with ten untitled tracks that try to explore the seedlings of collaborator Thomas Köner's more minimalist philosophies... When these pieces sound like an insomniac's heartbeat, pulsing along to an unsettling world of twilight paranoia, the effect is deeply disturbing. There's a mechanist's glare to a number of these tracks. An exhausted lucidity that probably points to one of the most potent and coherent constructions of all the E.A.R. releases so far". Dean Carlson, All Music Guide

"The Köner Experiment' is the collaboration of several of the finest experimental artists of the time, namely Sonic Boom, Kevin Martin (God & Techno Animal), Eddie Prevost (AMM), Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) and Thomas Köner and Andy Mellwig (Porter Ricks). This release was recorded during 1991 in studios in Coventry & London, the material was then sculpted in Dortmund into its present form by the much acclaimed German artists Köner and Mellwig. Taking the ethos of experimental audio research to new levels, this release shows us the deep and complex nature of the music E.A.R. (Experimental Audio Research) produce. Deep, rolling waves of sound producing emotions and thoughts like no other style can".
