"Gnad en Walzae" is the soundtrack to Konsul Gnadenwalze's very own universe – 6 tracks creating some dub-wise broken beat abstractions, beautiful and brutal, organic and mechanized at the same time. Each successive listen reveals new depths, pulling you further into the world of Konsul Gnadenwalze. A wired carousel
ride with the ancient question of whether we revolve around our environment, or our environment revolves around us. Don't forget to check out the nicely designed extra booklet!

Clouds, the first new release by Washer aka Andreas Kurz (also part of Guy Bored) since his album "Trains And Attitudes", finds him in a more abstract mood. The album is based on samples of acoustic instruments, found sounds and field recordings, all recorded by the artist himself. In a process of spontaneous re- composition with some granular synthesis involved, this material was whirrled around and newly organized in a way that fits the album title perfectly. The result is delicate music of small gestures, arranged in one ongoing set of 45 minutes. Encapsulating atmospheres and a chance meeting of different musical structures provide a rewarding and intense listening experience.

Analogsat & Gommoral feature Autark‘s first video release. By complex algorithms the visuals melt into the music: While in „Solitons“ the volume amplitudes trigger the motions of preselected images, in „Spectrometer“ the waveforms of the single tracks are positioned in space. In „Spectroscope“ six separate audio tracks are analysed by a spectroscope, which results in six overlapping pictures generating a single video. By determining the visualised shape, the sound almost turns into a bodily experience.

John E. Flash is back with his debut album. Unlike his former works on autark, in tracks like "Leaf" he introduces dubbier sounds this time. Yet, other tracks like "Der Usurpatorkomplex" stand out due to their cold, post clicks'n'cuts aesthetics. "Flora & Fauna" rises from a soundscape consisting of recordings made in Austrian forest while "One Five Six" and "Folie à deux" are jaunts through razor-edged electronica.

The four tracks of the playground EP were generated during playground festival in Innsbruck Austria in September 2009. Byetone, Schlammpeitziger, Christian Stefaner-Schmid and Fritz Teufel met the challenge to explore the city of Innsbruck by means of field recording devices. The collected audio material was processed to pieces of music in public, i.e. in a shop-window of a highly frequented commercial street, which was occupied for a week and also provided a basis for a media art exposition, discussions, talks, screenings and parties. A documentation of the entire festival is available at playground.autark-net.org.

After some years of dark mars voyages, Innsbruck-based Sunom has located rather tranquil music styles on other planets. The journey led to more individual and experimental sounds, such as hashed beats and breaks or liquid spheres and even raspy singing. Never the less he only profits from the earth‘s air which transports acoustic noise by 1234,8 kilometers per hour. This phenomenon has already been used by other musicians.

These sounds are recordings of the noises that occured while Krach der Roboter was manufactured. The order they are assembled in is based on excerpts from the code of Krach's operating system. This complex calculation process took from 2000 to 2004, because computer chips were not elaborate back then and often crashed.

Sometimes 19-year-old Innsbruck based Lt. Thrombose submerges the listener in a fog of multi-instrumentation. Sometimes his tracks are right in your face, with huge and distorted synth lines and straight beats. And sometimes there are more  sublime beats and eccentric voice samples. In the end stands an unambiguous advice: Go and get lost!

radical constructivist, atheist, skeptic. convinced of the independent existence of machines. does not make much difference between man and machine and is not tempted to find this differences. quite the opposite is the case and already found in the possibillity of conditioning man and machine likewise, by similar methods. that's why for hornyphon, music is a constructivist process, using constructivist methodes. the result has nothing to do with what one likes to call "feelings". for hornyphon it would be pointless to stick with the same "sentiments" and to tonally evoke and invoke the same "sentimental patterns" over and over again. this would be careless, even reckless. listeners are persuaded to observe themselves, in order to become an audience, respectively consumers of the second order and hence become aware of their self-referentiality and self-organisation. no need to be afraid of breaks. the decomposition of hornyphon's music, in the form of free tonality, is nothing else but a shifting of values, perceptions and patterns, by sometimes less than a semitone. more thought, less music.

CHRA ist the soloproject of Vienna-based Christina Nemec. She likes to play and stretch low frequency sine waves, granulated through a small program called soundeffects, and manipulated via logic, ableton live, 4-track-recorder, sampler – like a roadmovie for your ears. Main topics: landscapes, territories, silence, unexpected things and history.

John E. Flash is one of the carriers of autark. As host and DJ he has been around in the Innsbruck area for a couple of years. Now is the time to add a new part: the
producer. Mountainscape is an attempt to merge several influences such as electronica, techno and hip hop to a whole. John E. Flash takes off his alpine
boots and produces sound far away from montane romanticism.

With sweet 17 Innsbruck based analog fanatic Krowley launches his first 4-track-EP. Instead of becoming a Schönberg piano prodigy, he found his love in experimental electronic music, but always flavoured with a very special organic ambience. His sound‘s an oscillation between dubstep, electronica and downbeat with heavy influence of acoustic instruments under reference to renaissance music.

Hans Platzgumer and Jens Döring are hp.stonji. So far they've been known from their albums on Zurich's Spezialmaterial and the Viennese label Konkord, as well as from their countless other projects (solo or with others, e.g. Cube & Sphere, hp.zinker, Queen of Japan, e.stonji).
hp.stonji's music is an organic blueprint of the music called electronica. But it might as well be  fat and dirty. Autark's prologue "Piano Expeditions" is a journey into the atmospheric deeps of modern ambient music as cold and warm it can be.
