Berlin-based composer Johannes Motschmann (who studied composition, piano and electronic music; and has already written works for large orchestra) has now combined those two longstanding German traditions, electronic and classical music, on his album Electric Fields.
Drawing influences from Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno, Motschmann (accompanied by multi-percussionist David Panzl and Boris Bolles) took written scores into a studio and recorded live sessions that overflow with energy and emotion.
Ahead of the album's August 19 release on the highly revered German label Neue Meister, "Echoes and Drones" has been made available as one of today's free downloads below.
