about

In order to get lines of perspective moving, Aufgang transcend their instrumentarium. From this organic corpus, they manage to extract a hand-stitched, deeply human kind of music. This exhilarating craft builds bridges between disciplines, skilfully pulling together acoustics and electronics while making bold connections between different eras. Ancestral pianos are groovier than any sequencer, the synths they use are antediluvian and the drums are constantly oscillating between metal and skin. They may well be the first truly accomplished and unabashed explorers of the channel connecting various approaches
which, so far, had at best only been piled up. Aufgang transcend the confines of time to bring the past back into the future.

Their energy feeds on the communion that playing together generates. They are constantly going back and forth between the studio and the stage, composition and collective improvisation. That’s how they created a new language, their very own, a genuine declaration of non-conformism. Hence this second, much more direct and spontaneous album compared to their previous album and EPs. It is fuelled by a few
surprise turns, brought about by their exploratory work, as exemplified by the inclusion, here and there, of vocals.

Halfway between democracy and anarchy, this free system positions itself at the perfect point of equilibrium that is collective freedom. Their configuration calls for spontaneity, control and determination. And this is what enables them to reach beyond their confines, in a spirit of convergence and friendship.
