Kohier

Kohier
I / "The Begotten"
Sloow Tapes – CS 70


Kohier is Brecht Ameel (Razen) and Jürgen De Blonde (Köhn). Night time patrol tunes in which the brooding slowness of Bohren circa 'Sunset Mission' meet with the otherworldly sensitivity of early Tomita. Edition of 70 copies.


Kohier are Flemish duo Brecht Ameel on baritone guitar and Jürgen De Blonde on synthesizer. The cassette contains improvisations by the duo that vary from slow atmospheric pieces to up-tempo minimalist compositions. The music explores various styles and genres and evokes images of wide and desolate natural scenes. The red cassette, red insert and track titles, which for the greater part refer to blood, complete this fine Sloow Tapes release, of which only 70 copies were produced.(Sea Urchin)
