Dictaphone - Goats & Distortions 5


The Belgian-German band Dictaphone around mastermind Oliver Doerell returns with their fifth album, Goats and Distortions 5. After their last highly acclaimed album APR70 Oliver Doerell is surrounded again by his long term bandmembers Roger Döring (clarinet and saxophone) and Alex Stolze (violins). In the last three years they dived even deeper in their “morbid instruments” concept. An old tape machine, which Doerell found in a hidden room in his house in Berlin served as sound source, ghostly sounds could be heard and the machine died soon after being sampled. For the first time Roger Döring played a bass clarinet on this album and after the recordings lost it in the subway on his way home… They improved their skills to use rustle as a instrument and are supported by the voice of Helga Raimondi in the track Your Reign is Over. The result is an ungraspable, ghostly, spooky album consisting of ten different journeys into the experimental sound world of these unique compositions.
