Paul Divjak – Collected Releases

Divjak @KonkordIt’s simply unbelievable, that already 20 years passed since my first release “so fine” (7″) on sue.mi (Berlin/Prague). In the very same year, 2002, Hans Platzgumer, with whom I had the chance to collaborate on my first EP, mentioned Konkord Records, a young team of audiophile enthusiast from Vienna. I immediately got in contact with Wolfgang Reitter and the boys (back then they really were young) from “the friendly record label” from Vienna, and immediately learnt to appreciate their vast musical knowledge and the expertise. To cut a long story short: We did my first EP “A Glimmer of Hope” together in 2005. And ever since Konkord turned out to be my very trustful homebase for my musical concepts and releases. – I’m already pretty much looking forward to celebrating a “Best Off” at the occasion of our 20-years anniversary. Here’s to you, Konkorditos!***

Sciene Fiction Pocket Museum – The Guided Tour

Science Fiction Pocket Museum - CD Cover

Wir betreten das Museum. Die Musik setzt ein, die Schwerkraft aus. Wir heben ab. Es biept, es zirpt, es dröhnt: poetische Soundminiaturen öffnen Ambient-Klangräume und erzählen von möglichen Welten und der Begegnung mit fremden Wesen. Und hinter freischwebenden Planeten wächst der Orbit in unendliche Weiten. – Captain Kirk hat recht: „Beauty Survives“.

We are entering the museum. The music starts, and gravity stops. We are free floating. It beeps, it chirps, it drones: poetic sound miniatures open up ambient sound spaces, telling of possible worlds and encounters with alien beings. Behind free-floating planets, the orbit grows into the infinite. – Captain Kirk was right: “Beauty Survives”.

Bee Pop – Prologue

by Team Tool Time

We have been fascinated by bees forever. But what did we really know about them? Ok, there’s the stuff with the birds and the bees, we all love the yummy syrup known as honey and fear the bee’s sting. (Since we have all made first-hand acquaintance with it back then, barefoot in childhood days.)

It was late autumn 2011 when we first came up with the idea of connecting more closely with the life of the honey bee. We wanted to do some research, collect sounds on location in and around the hives. The aim was to produce an entire album based on field recordings. — mehr —

Bee-Pop-A-Lula, you’re my honey! Zwei Dirigenten und gut 100.000 Musiker – solch ein großes Orchester gab es wohl noch nie zuvor in der Geschichte des Field Recording. Die beiden Künstler Paul Divjak und Wolfgang Schlögl (aka I-Wolf) bilden zusammen das Team Tool Time, verpflichtet der angewandten Klangforschung an der Schnittstelle zwischen Alltag und Kunst. Für das erste Album des Teams wurde im Sommer 2012 der Lebensraum der Apis mellifera, also der westlichen Honigbiene besucht.
