Press release notes from Editions Mego:
“Angel is Ilpo Väisänen (Pan sonic) and Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM) who play time-transcending freeform sound, weightlessness and gravity of electromagnetic signals together since 1999.
The 5 tracks describe the last period of a 26000 years long cycle that leads to a new situation on this planet.
26000 was recorded between 2008 and 2010 at Construction Site Studios in Berlin & Ilpo’s cottage in Karttula, Finland and features guest appearences by Hildur Gudnadottir, BJ Nilsen and Oren Ambarchi.
The repertoire of the instruments is very wide: glassbowls, metal objects, pieces of wood, grass, birds, dragonflies, lake echo, smoking box and the regular electronic equipment as well as acoustic instruments.
Hildur plays cello & the halldorophon (a kind of cello that feeds itself back).
Oren plays percussion & guitar.
Benny did field recordings and processing.
All mixed by Angel at Dirk’s newly built studio called Zone and mastered by Rashad Becker in Berlin.
It’s all good in the tummy, bwoys, because the Black Sabbath parts were totally AC/DC.”
