“‘Guitar Sounds’ is a brilliant experimental guitar album; its fine solos are a self-contained world of clang, scrape, and buzz. However, this is not just a micro-study of guitar capabilities; it evokes a range of emotions too: bliss, foreboding, a poignant awe. This is an album generated spontaneously in the moment but worthy of lasting study and reflection.”
“If you thought Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music was tricky, throw your ears into this audio maelstrom. I imagine if Reed, Glenn Philips, Lee Ranaldo, Karlheinz Stockhausen and My Bloody Valentine teamed up to make a charity single, this could be the result – an uncompromising soundtrack to someone handing over a small fortune just to make it stop. Superb stuff.”
“Das aufreizend treffend betitelte Album Guitar Sounds des Ex-Bielefelder Ex-Indierockers Schneider TM etabliert eine weitere Kategorie: eine, bei der die onanistische Stromgitarre dekonstruiert, nämlich gar nicht erst als führendes Instrument eingesetzt wird, sondern der Klangentbindung dient.”

Reinhold Friedl (zeitkratzer) & Dirk Dresselhaus (SchneiderTM)
The two protagonists are coming from really different backgrounds: Dirk Dresselhaus released since the late ninties as Schneider TM several experimental-electronic Freakpop recordings. He startet in the 80ies Indipendent rock/pop-Postpunk and developed his personal approach to sound and structura as an autodidact, starting with guitar effect devices and 4-track homerecording. Reinhold Friedl studied mathematics and music, got scolarships and international commissions, and built up the ensemble zeitkratzer, disrespecting all musical frontiers. Si tt’s not satonishing, that both met for the first time, when zeitkratzer performed the Lou Reeds Metal Machine Music: Dirk Dresselhaus was restless enthusiastic about this unrestrained contemporary music group, succeeding to devote itself to the instrumentation of purely tuned guitar feedback.
Dresselhaus and Friedl started their cooperation, that happened over years in studios only: what happen’s if you put those strange inside-piano sounds – another domain where Friedl set standards – or those powerfull hupe piano-drones into Schneider TM’s electronic devices, modulating them with an incredible complex Feedback system and recursive effect settings? Sometimes violent, somtimes subtile, mostly large-scale sound fields, which always work out only one sound or noise, developing an overwhelming impact.
Reinhold Friedl plays pianoforte, harmonics, horse hair, metal sheet, fishing line, metal tube: inside-piano, extended piano; Dirk Dresselhaus plays oscillator, spring reverb, isolator, memory man, digital delay, mixing desk, lfo, noise generator, vibrator / time machine, pitch shifter, ring modulator. The 3CD-set REAL TIME is ready for release.
