(Sonig)

Originally released in 1992 on vinyl limited editions, these five tracks find now a new digital life in this masterpiece of contemporary sound treatment. “1992″ is an intelligent record and a well crafted artifact, made with perfect ingredients and likely to appeal to most acousmatic music lovers. Hajsch privileges exploring timbres and frequencies through simple means, like the humming of an electric guitar, an oscillator or a gentle couple of violin notes. After a while, you come to realize these sources have started to pave the way to a very high degree of inner listening and thoughtful sound meditations, especially when the ear-splitting synthetic vibrations characterizing some of the initial segments leave room to concrete and found sounds accompanying looped electroacoustics or peculiar samplings. In almost one hour of music I could not find a moment which I didn’t like and that’s a rare feature indeed.
