With a lexicon of electronic aliases such as Arpanet, Heinrich Mueller, Japanese Telecom, Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Elecktroids, Der Zyklus, Zerkalo and more we now introduce the collaboprative group project Zwischenwelt.
With a sound described by someone as ‘something like Nico meets Fad Gadget’ or even ‘cold wave for zola jesus fans’, Zwischenwelt explore the field of parapsychology with a dark and twisted vision of cold wave electronics.
Parapsychology investigates paranormal psychic abilities using scientific methods, such as used in traditional psychology (observation, survey etc.) and quantitative empirical methodologies such as used in sociology, psychology and pedagogy. Parapsychological phenomenon are often also called Psi-Phenomenon. The two main fields of parapsychological research are Psychokinesis, the ability of the mind to influence objects without involvement of currently known physical energies and without physical contact between the acting subject and the reacting object (for example telekinesis and psychic healing) and Extrasensory Perception (ESP), the ability to acquire information by (psychic) sources currently unexplained by science (best known examples are clairvoyance, precognition and telepathy).
It is this field that the group Zwischenwelt (German for ‘in-between world’) look to discover. Combining the talents of former Drexciya member Heinrich Mueller, New York DJ/producer Susana Correia, Spanish producer Penelope Lopez and vocalist Beta Evers (who operates a number of German labels, including Kommando 6), Zwischenwelt’s ‘Paranormale Aktivitat’ was created largely through the passing of parts back and forth across the web.
The opening ‘Apparition’ starts with an ethereal, ghost-like feel that permeates this haunting electronic encounter whilst ‘Clairvoyant’ pairs a stripped down electro beat to distant echoes of melody in a half-remembered state. Tracks such as ‘Enigmata’ and ‘Telekinesis’ add a strange swing to the avant-garde approach whilst ‘Diapsiquia’ and ‘Materialization’ are eerie cinematic moodscapes that push the groups experimental reach. Finally the pulsating rhythm of ‘Telemetric’ is perhaps the most obvious electro-power surge for the dancefloor.
