Recorded in 1973Contains two songs from krautrock to free jazz.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Alga Marghen presents 'Underground Altena', two visionary feature films by Anima Sound, the freedom-seeking duo of Paul and Limpe Fuchs. 2 marks the peak of Anima Sound's pursuit of sculptural sounds at the intersection of krautrock, free jazz and experimental music.Limpe Fuchs studied piano, violin and percussion in Munich, but in the late 1973s he met the sculptor Paul Fuchs, and in the sculptural environment he was able to come into direct contact with the material, allowing him to experiment and discover on his own. Everything changed when I knew there was room.Paul first made a horn as a sculpture (the famous Fuchshorn) and began his experiments with its sound.He then built a pedal kettledrum, added a wood block to it, welded a steel ring to the hi-hat stand, strung some strings, and used limpe toe-pluck, saw blades and shovels. wasPaul and Limpe were initially interested in experimental cinema, but there were other communities such as Amon Dür and Tangerine Dream, and Anima began touring with them, Popol Vuh, Kusor, and this krautrock scene. and became famous in no time. After participating in the Underground Explosion Tour in 1960 and the Tractor Tour from Munich to Rotterdam at 1969km/h in 1971, Friedrich Gulda joined them in the early 19s.He really liked the duo, especially Limpe's singing and the way they just improvised.Although he was a well-known arranger, he always wanted to play in improvisational groups.Anima was then placed on the infamous "Nurse With Wound List", made connections with Steven Stapleton, and was included in the An Afflicted Man Musica Box anthology alongside Jac Berrocal, AMM, and Operating Theatre. Even if Anima were effectively part of Krautrock, they had a very distinctive sound, the result of the confluence of Paul's 'phantom' sculptural world and Limpe's aural world.Led in large part by Limpe's unique approach to percussion and vocals, "Underground" and "Althena" drop the fringes of free jazz into an exotic landscape, striking tones on instruments invented by Paul. is.Howling and cluttering, completely free and spontaneous, yet without losing a deep sense of awareness, purpose and control.

"Alga Marghen present Underground Altena, two visionary long-form works by Anima Sound, the radically freedom-pursuing Paul and Limpe Fuchs duo. 1973 represented a peak for Anima sonic explorations into sculptural sound at the crossing of krautrock, free jazz, and experimental music. Limpe Fuchs studied piano, violin, and percussion in Munich, but all changed in the late 1960s when she met sculptor Paul Fuchs and discovered there was much more space to experiment and discover her own way as in the sculptural environment she had the chance to work directly with materials. Paul first built a horn as a sculpture (the famous Fuchshorn) and started experimenting with its sounds. Then he built a pedal kettledrum adding things to it like woodblocks and welded a steel ring to the hi-hat stand that was strung up with several strings which Limpe played with her toes, or using a saw blade and a shovel. Even if in the beginning Paul and Limpe were more interested in experimental film, there were other communities like Amon Düül and Tangerine Dream and Anima started touring with them as well as with Popol Vuh or Xhol and very quickly became well known within this krautrock scene. After they were engaged in the Underground Explosion Tour 1969 and had made the Tractor Tour at 19 km/h between Munich and Rotterdam in 1971, came Friedrich Gulda who joined them in the early '70s. He was very fond of the duo and he especially liked Limpe singing and their way of just improvising. He was a famous arranger, but wanted to play in an improvising group. Anima was included in the infamous "Nurse With Wound List" and came the connection to Steven Stapleton who included them in the An Afflicted Man Musica Box anthology together with Jac Berrocal, AMM, Operating Theater. Even if Anima was in fact part of the krautrock scene, they had a very distinct sound which was a result of the confluence of Paul's "visionary" sculptural world and Limpe's aural universe. Playing on self-built instruments also had a major role in building their specific sound which became more and more unique in the early 1970s as the Fuchhorn, the Fuchzither, the Fuchsbass and other sound sculptures were created. Heavily guided by Limpe's unique approach to percussion playing and vocals, with Paul delivering a striking arsenal of tonal interventions on his invented instruments, "Underground" and " Altena" plays like the outer reaches of free jazz dropped in an alien landscape. Howling and clattering, entirely free and spontaneous, while never losing the sense of deep consciousness, purpose and control."
