1 - TIETCHENS, ASMUS - 4K7 (4LP) - (LP) 
VINYL ON DEMAND


Reissue. This 4LP box includes his first 4 tape-works from the late 70's. Released between 1981 and 1983 on the British YHR Tapes label (Yorkhouserecords) as well as the American Aeon tapes, all 4 tapes were issued in approx. 50 copies each. The tapes were called 'Musik an der Grenze', 'Musik im Schatten', 'Musik unter Tage' and 'Musik aus der Grauzone'. This limited 200-edition contains the bonus 7" for members from the 2007-edition. Tietchens is a German electronic musician who has pursued "absolute music" through an almost mathematical process of rigid formal exercises. With strong ties to Karlheinz Stockhausen's early electronic work, Tietchens specializes in irregular patterns of sonic abstractions that are suspended in gray drones to create cold textural voids from external references.

2 - TIETCHENS, ASMUS - BIOTOP - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Asmus Tietchens is one of the best known German artists in the field of abstract music. Five of his early works, roughly definable as avant-garde synthesizer pop, are to be reissued progressively by Bureau B. "Biotop" was the first Tietchens release on Sky Records (Cluster, Rother, Roedelius, Moebius, Plank, Riechmann amongst others). Biotop is inhabited by insectoid squeaks, banging percussion and echoes of displaced nursery rhymes. The hectic piece Moderne Arroganz is notablefor a voice listing types of insurance; from behind this "unbeatable idiocy" (Guido Sprenger) a critical reflex emerges which can be taken as social commentary-it is no coincidence that Sauberland resounds with squeaky absurdity, taking itself none too seriously. One would not be wrong, therefore, to divine the artist finding himself in the banefully piercing title track, which rejects the alleged harmlessness of the album, a contrary "Im here too", attenuated only by the remark "lets see how things go". But Tietchens half hoping, half sceptical stance-underlined as an endless groove on the initial pressing-proved unfounded.

TRACKLISTING: 01. In Die Zukunft 02. Miss Ann Trope 03. Die Elektrische Horde 04. Rauschlinge 05. Geisel Des Monats 06. Blutmund 07. Cretin Statique 08. Gasmaske In Blau 09. Moderne Arroganz 10. Stressmen 11. Tango Fellatino 12. Sauberland 13. Truemmerkoepfe 14. Sekundentanz 15. Traumchen Am Fenster 16. Biotop

4 - TIETCHENS, ASMUS - DER FUENFTE HIMMEL - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Collection of outtakes from 1980-1983. Asmus Tietchens is one of the most renowned German artists in the abstract music scene. He began by recording a handful of Residents-influenced synthesizer albums, launching into a peerless mix of stuttering beats and off-kilter harmonies which earned his music the generic tag "pseudo pop". Der fuenfte Himmel reaches back to a time before and after the so-called Zeitzeichen phase, gathering up unwanted or rejected pieces, the ones considered unsuitable or simply left behind.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fast Food 02. Futurum Drei 03. Soiree 04. Zum Tee Bei Frau Hilde 05. Wuergstoffe 06. Niedermacher 07. Lebende Regler 08. Flut 09. Hertzlicht 10. Kreuze Des Suedens 11. Vom Pol Zum Metropol 12. Atommacht Indien

6 - TIETCHENS, ASMUS - IN DIE NACHT - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Asmus Tietchens is one of Germanys most renowned artists in thefield of abstract music. He began by recording a handful ofResidents-influenced synthesizer albums, launching into apeerless mix of stuttering beats and off-kilter harmonies whichearned his music the generic tag "pseudo pop". In die Nacht wasTietchens third solo album on Sky Records. It was first released in 1982. In technical terms, In die Nacht differed notably from its predecessors as Tietchens now had access to a Polymoog, enabling him to play chords. The Minimoog and rhythm machine he had used until then were deliberately pushed into the background; the drum machine in particular was drastically taken out of the mix. The creative versatility of this relatively modest equipment still appears remarkable today.

8 - TIETCHENS, ASMUS - LITIA - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Asmus Tietchens is one of the best known German artists in thefield of abstract music. He began by recording a handful ofResidents-influenced synthesizer albums, launching into apeerless mix of stuttering beats and off-kilter harmonies whichearned his music the generic tag "pseudo pop". Litia from 1983 was the fourth Tietchens release on Sky Records (Cluster, Rother, Roedelius, Moebius, Plank, Riechmann amongst others). What sets Litia apart from its three predecessors is the wider pool of instruments at Tietchens disposal. For the first time, he had a digital rhythm machine which could play samples; then there was the Korg Polysix synthesizer, a hybrid of analogue and digital technology. The polyphonic transition piece could not actually create samples, but could at least simulate the sounds of instruments. As the Korg Polysix and rhythm machine could be synchronised, "a whole new world of sound" beckoned.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Zeebruegge 02. Abhuster Nebulizer 03. Unterhaltsmusik 04. Vorsaison 05. Pollys Square Dance 06. Torpedo Ahoi 07. Energie-dossier 08. Ritual Der Kranken Freude 09. Litia 10. Auf Elf

12 - TIETCHENS, ASMUS - SPAET-EUROPA - (CD) 
BUREAU B


Asmus Tietchens is one of the best known German artists in thefield of abstract music. Five of his early works, roughly definable as avant-garde synthesizer pop, are to be reissued progressively by Bureau B. "Spaet-Europa" was the second Tietchens release on Sky Records (Cluster, Rother, Roedelius, Moebius, Plank, Riechmann amongst others)What is new on Spaet-Europa is a greater concentration of form, concise and pointed in the sense of musical economy. Tietchens sought to accentuate this aspect even more acutely, but lacked the technical means to ensure that each of the "miniatures" lasted exactly two minutes. Nevertheless, he only missed his ideal target by a few seconds here and there. The concept of Spaet-Europa as an album of twenty tracks two minutes long recalls the Residents Commercial Album (1980) which contains forty tracks, each a minute in length-although these were designed to be played in groups of three in order to create a regular "pop song". Tietchens does not go that far, but he shares the musical, metatextual and humorous sensibilities ofthe American band, having "organized crusades" for their albums at this time. Traces of their influence may be discernible, but Tietchens has placed them in an entirely new context.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Spaet-europa 02. Frautod Graffito 03. Mythos Und Gummibaerchen 04. Lourdes Extra 05. Poanpo 06. Nervenfalls 07. Groessenwarnung 08. Bescheidenes Vergnuegen 09. Schoene Dritte Welt 10. Herrmannstrohm 11. Erloschene Herzen 12. Endspannung 13. Betablocker 14. Tretboot Zum Schafott 15. Ausverkauf 16. Bockwurst A La Maitresse 17. Passaukontrolle 18. Wein Aus Wien 19. Stille Haefen 20. Epitaph
