STRAFE FÜR REBELLION Sulphur Spring

CD album | gg190
Strafe für Rebellion is Bernd Kastner and S.M. Syniuga. All recordings were made by Strafe F.R. at St. Stephanus Church in Düsseldorf (Germany) between 1993 and 2013. Additional recordings were made at the Strafe studio. The church was the band's recording studio for several months. There was a main organ and a smaller one in the crypt. The music instruments of the church orchestra were also used. The sound - reinforcement system of the church and its loudspeakers were brilliant. Not only was the singer (Caterina De Re) permanently changing positions within the church, but the portable recording system was also moving, and so did several battery powered ghetto blasters which were carried inside the church building.The lyrics of Sulphur Spring were inspired by the book "Lo stato presente di tutti i paesi e popoli del mondo (Volume XI)". That book was published in Venice in 1772. Because of that the vocals are in Italian language. We own a copy of this encyclopedia. Volume XI deals with the globalization of the world of that time and the trade between Europe and the Americas and their social relationships and conditions of dependence. It is about the exploitation of the native people in north and south America on the one hand and the exploitation of the natural resources on the other hand. A magnificent return of one of Germany's most exciting Avantgarde projects. Special price. Tracklist: 1. Tomato 2. Maize 3. Black Powder 4. Potato 5. Tobacco 6. Silver 7. Caoutchouc 8. Cacao 9.

Das Material für die insgesamt 12 Tracks auf „Sulphur Spring“ würde über den Zeitraum von 1993 bis 2013 gesammelt und als Aufnahmeort fungierte größtenteils die St. Stephanus-Kirche in Düsseldorf. Dank der dort vorherrschenden Akustik und mit den von STRAFE FÜR REBELLION auf ihren meist selbstgebauten Instrumente entlockten schrägen Tönen bzw. deren Zusammenspiel mit der klassisch ausgebildeten Stimme von Caterina De Re, lässt „Sulphur Spring“ auf der einen Seite eine gewisse sakrale Stimmung entstehen, ist anderseits aber von einer sehr unruhigen Atmosphäre geprägt.
