Empty Space:

"The story of ARSCH's debut album is as obscure as it is remarkable: We first met ARSCH at a small alternative festival in the Swiss Jura Mountains where they held a four-hour-long concert that stood out for its psychedelic minimalism, crazy improvisations and its raw analog sound. After getting in touch with the band after the concert, we learned that ARSCH is an anarcho-syndicalist commune running a farm in a Swiss mountain village called Bitsch. 70s in an old barn there.

Over the years, this bunch of (non-)musicians produced loads of recordings which were kept on reel-to-reel tapes in this very barn. Unfortunately the barn burned down in 2019 because one of the band members fell asleep with a burning joint in his mouth. Luckily no one got hurt, though most of the vintage instruments and a big part of the sound archive did not survive the flames.

This tragedy motivated us at Empty Space to help ARSCH with the processing of those horrible events by collecting and publishing the last remaining sound pieces. Because of this, ARSCHs equally named album can be seen as a cultural witness, expressing the works of a very unique community and thereby conserving them for future generations."
