Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin-based Tobias Lisius débuts his fearsome Liziuz alias with this bleak AF 2 hour invocation of ambient techno noise for his neighbourhood cranks at Hospital Productions.
On Disc 1’s Interaction Personelle (Ambient Version) he pursues an elusive mixture of industrial and kosmische ambient techno themes in a seamless, viscous roil of ideas, easy on the distortion but full of scurrying detail and noxious space. Disc 2 yields a farther 50 odd minutes of material that skulks around the idea of techno as dance music for the first half, before picking up momentum with mucky synth swill and clustered beats in the final third.
“After a series of committed live performances in Germany, Berlin-based producer Liziuz delivers his stunning debut album for Hospital Productions, Geschichten Des Lebens. Presented on two discs with two interpretations of the same epic track with one in ambient form and one in techno form. Geschichten Des Lebens is an album that requires patience with deep rewards. Liziuz is a new name emerging from the contemporary Berlin electronic underground. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Liziuz has isolated himself in solitude, meticulously crafting long-form landscapes simultaneously industrial and psychedelic. RIYL: Dedekind Cut, Gas, Lussuria.”
