Tietchens, a sound artist and compo-ser from Hamburg, Germany got interested in Musique Concrete by listening to a German radio programme when he was 10. In 1965, at the age of 18, he started experimenting with tape loops and turned them into musical collages. Soon, the use of synthesizers was added. His debut album ‚Nachtstücke‘ [1980] was produced by Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream, soon followed by a series of albums of electronic pop music for the Sky label, home of many Krautrock bands. Tietchens often uses special source materials for his compositions such as water, human voices, paper... He is associated with the Industrial music scene through his collaborations and releases on countless labels. Tietchens never studied composition, he has no academic background, everything he does is self taught or learnign by doing. Nevertheless, he was professor for sound design in Hamburg in recent years. The album ‚Eisgang‘ was originally released on Dutch Korm Plastics label in 1995 as a limited edition vinyl LP only. It was later reissued as a double CD. For this latest edition, another bonus track has been added, making the CD 20 minutes longer than the Vinyl.
Released Late-October 2017 on Klanggalerie.
