about

JANUARY 19th = LABEL BIRTHDAY = 1 DAY LONG EXCLUSIVE SALE OF THIS ALBUM. then undisclosed till official release on march 15th!

On his 3rd album for KARL, painter, musician, photographer and video artist HANS CASTRUP continues his explorations of analogue and digital sound sources, creating a dystopian soundtrack that melts dark ambience with electro-acoustic means.

After “Shadowplay” (2013) and “Lizenzfreie Restwärme” (2016), “Heterogeneous Cell Information” is the 3rd album (and first LP) by HANS CASTRUP on Karl. CASTRUP, born in 1957 and working as independent artist on the fields of painting, music, photography, video, graphics and text since graduating as MA at the University of Osnabrück, sticks with his working method of multi-layer compositions: various analogue and digital sound sources such as synthesizers, field recordings or tapes are being edited, manipulated and re-organized as abstract-reduced compositions meandering between melodiousness and experimental collages whose reference system ranges from new music and avantgarde to today’s electronics. But a simple, formulaic repetition of approved means wouldn’t satisfy CASTRUP’s artist soul, and so he invited CARLA WORGULL to contribute overtone singing and other advanced ways of vocalization which intensify the overall alien atmosphere of the eight compositions.
“Heterogeneous Cell Information” is available as download and an ultra-limited edition of 100 handnumbered items (clear transparent vinyl, silk-screened sleeve).
