The Church of Noisy Goat

Listen today on @noisygoatchurch to the highly anticipated debut of the powerful and renowned artist on the industrial music scene, SONICrider aka Jurgen Winkel. On the album “SONOS RECLINANT”, he presents three killer tracks of instant composition that he performed only with synthesizer and sampler in rack modules. About five minutes filled with synthetic orchestral string sounds and some comforting reverb opens the album on the cerebrally immersive and relaxing track “Satus”. Then we hear “Sonos Reclinant”, which gives its name to this masterpiece of avant-garde electronic music and for twenty-eight minutes it sounds like a gentle stream of possible and imaginable sounds, ranging from field recordings of voices to noisy drones, such as a rubbed metal surface. Closing with “Complevit” that in eleven minutes spreads a drone through the listener’s mind that takes him to the darkest confines of it. Many thanks to Jurgen Winkel for this collector’s item.

Enjoy, The Church of Noisy Goat

– In front of the big stand a DIY “string”, a bass string played with all kind of iron objects, the string sound goed via the Koma field kit and a filter (manually) controlled by a LFO.
– Nest to the big stand the Korg Arp and in front the ADDAC 112 + ADDAC 506 + Koma Poltergeist (a cv controlled 4 channel mixer, panning is modulated).
– Mackie mixing console with on top the Waldorf Pulse 2 (the Pulse filter is modulated manually).
