Placed between three beautiful androids, Einzelganger seems in full control. Soft particles flow on layers of field recordings. He slowly builds powerful dreamy soundscapes for us to safely indulge in. It’s a short musical journey, but an immensely pleasant one.
He certainly shows seniority in developing soothing, natural, and heartwarming layers of clear sound. He creates a world with often wide spaces and tiny details everywhere. Though out there, many field recordings safely ankers your consiousness to reality.
Here’s a great video registration of the performance made by the marvelous OpenWebcast crew.
Einzelganger is the musical alias of designer/musician Thijs Geritz. His musical style varies between IDM, ambient and drone.
Thijs is part of other musical projects as well. Mouches Volantes (IDM with Wouter Blok), Geritz / Kaffa (Ambient drones with Stephan Kaffa) and FREAZZP (a jazz/rap/fusion collective). All these projects have one thing in common, namely the use of field recordings as part of the music.
