Contains 4 minimal drone to ambient drone songs using a self-made pipe organ. DL code and booklet included.

Below is a commentary by the label.

 "The first collaborative album by brothers Simon and Tobias. The album was written for and performed on a prototype of a homemade wind instrument inspired by the classical pipe organ, but the two composers The cum-performer was able to surpass its limits in several ways.The music on this 2-minute album, produced for the Swiss Hallow Ground label, was created by the label's co-founding with the CRTTR collective. Conceived and recorded during an artist residency in their hometown of Bern in May 40, Arches is more than just a record of a performance. , the artist's interest in exploring unknown, creative and new tonal horizons within and beyond the realm of drone music, and his background in visual art and design, are combined into a conceptually concise whole.

Simon and Tobias have a background in electronic music and share a penchant for drone music.So they designed this novel instrument to overcome the limitations inherent in the dominance of the 12-tone scale in Western music, and to be able to handle a much wider and more nuanced sonic palette than traditional pipe organs, using microtonal tones. Designed in a way that allows tuning.Additionally, the physical design of these instruments differs significantly from the design of the instrument that inspired them.This gives musicians the freedom to invent and explore completely new playing methods.

Text excerpt from Hallow Ground:

"»Arches« is the first collaborative album by brothers Simon and Tobias Lanz. It was written for and performed on self-built prototypes of wind instruments that were inspired by the classic pipe organ, but allowed the two composer-performers to go beyond its limitations in several ways. The music on this 40-minute long album for the Swiss Hallow Ground label was conceived and recorded by the two co-founders of the CRTTR collective and label during an artist residency in May 2022 in their home town of Bern. More than a mere document of a performance however, »Arches« combines the artists' interest in exploring uncharted new creative and tonal ground inside of and beyond the realm of drone music with their background in visual art and design as a conceptually concise whole.

Simon and Tobias have combined a background in electronic music as well as a shared penchant for drone music. They hence designed these novel instruments in a way that allows for microtonal tuning to be able to overcome the restrictions inherent to the dominance of a twelve tone- based scale in Western music and work with a sonic palette that is much wider and nuanced than that of the conventional pipe organ. Furthermore, the physical design of these instruments widely differs from that of those which inspired them. This allows—or more precisely, forces—the musicians to freely invent and explore entirely novel playing techniques[...] "
