– aufgelassen –
Soundartist Denise Ritter aka Schachtanlage Gegenort has been doing her
electroacoustic sound art since 1997, composing industrial noise music
sounds of the steel industry and of coal mining. On ‚aufgelassen‘ she
blend of darkness and mystery, creating pulsating sound worlds by
using the recordings
of industrial noises of pounding machines, voice samples of steel
workers, sounds of
steel, stone and delay rooms.
Most recordings were made deep under earth in mines or in steel-mills.
Those sound worlds have on one hand organic structures, on the other
mechanical structures, in total ‚aufgelassen‘ offers quite various yet
exciting, deep and
almost mysterious atmospheres.
Denise Ritter studied sound art in Saarbrücken and has performed
throughout the last
years many sound installations and sound sculptures all over Europe.
In 2010 she won the German Sound Art Award.
Her self-released albums ‚Einsatzstoffe & Energie‘ (1997) and
‚Erzengel‘ (1998) became
milestones of post industrial music, and after her release ’41 Jahre
‚ (2005) on HANDS,
here is her second release on HANDS.
