"Hinterpest is a charming, alluring oddity...moving methodically through the year, the artist traces a theme of man v. nature, with a hidden, foreboding backdrop." - Richard Allen, A closer listen
"A curious creation...feels like a wonderful experimental radio play..." - Norman Records
Written as a soundtrack, complete with a detailed synopsis and a partial script, Hinterpest: plays out over the course of one year, starting with spring and ending in winter. One year, both literally and figuratively as said year also represents the life-cycle of man.
Hinterpest: was put together without the use of samples or field-recordings.
Chrome cassette tape - 7 EURO
Digital download - 5 EURO
