Noise music exists for many years, but there are still some individuals who
are assiduously following their own approach, avoiding any external influence,
creating something new and inspiring to get rid of any standards, giving us
the idea of unique sounding.
Phillip B. Klingler (PBK) is the one such musician.
In his 20 years of activity, he walked against the number of noisescapes,
painting them over with some secret traces of beauty and beyond. He released
some solo works but also collaborations with Dirk Serries (vidnaObmana), Slavek
Kwi (Artificial Memory Trace), Asmus Tietchens, Jeph Jerman (Hands To) and even
Artemy Artemiev (the son of famous Russian ANS-synth explorer).
His early works were released on tapes by his own PBK Recordings label and sold
out for many years, in the early 90s N D Records published his first couple of
CDs: endless labyrinths of dissonances, amorphous soundscapes unfolding from
the complex schemes of machine improvisation and stochastic processes.
Telepherique is the seminal German project existing since the late 80s and
exploring the grey area of the electronic underground. The main person behind
it is Klaus Jochim who also was responsible for now defunct tape label Drahtfunk
Productions. Besides his own production under various monikers like Technostria
and Das Konzentrat, he released some great collaboration tape albums with
artists like Brume, Kapotte Muziek, S.Core, Tesendalo, De Fabriek etc. They got initial support from labels like Ant-Zen and Noise Museum, later released some albums through Old Europa Cafe, S.S.S.M., Afe Records and Waystyx. The name Telepherique means "funicular railway" in French, but indirectly also the intention gaining a view from a higher level.
PBK and Telepherique proposes premium quality music with manifold edges: some hypnotic ambient pieces, some crazy noise collages, but mostly just unclassifiable abstract sound-sculptures. Both artists uses a lot of synthetic sound sources and sequences, creating unsettling atmosphere from the structured electronic patterns ranging from intense rhythmic work to creepy ambient out-of-body soundscapes.
