Boomkat Product Review:
Germany's answer to Daphne Oram or more likely Jan Jelinek in a wig, back in circulation.
You certainly get a lot of Bogner for your buck on Sonne = Blackbox, with 15 tracks showcasing faux-primitive electronic composition and tape manipulation from the imagined archive. On 'Or Dor Melanor', 'Shepard Monde' and the title track, Broadcast and Stereolab come to mind, while the eerie synthetic ramble of 'Trabant' is like Ghost Box relocated from Belbury to Berlin.
'Signalfluss' and 'Uranotypie' mesh droning, minimal electronics with Teutonic spoken word, while the playful, impish quality of 'Der Chor Der Oktaven' and 'Permutationen' invoke the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's John Baker and Delia Derbyshire on a jolly. The giveaway is Jelinek's use of subs though, the attendant sense of space and dub aesthetic is hard to imagine in late 60s and early 70s Germany. Good stuff though!
