*"Ganz im Gegenteil โ€“ the title of Andy Klingensmith's new album โ€“ roughly
translates to โ€œquite the oppositeโ€. This element of a slightly surprising
shift in perspective is at the core of the record. Equally inspired by the
pain and catastrophes caused by human ignorance and the vast natural beauty
of the Death Valley (the lowest point in North America), Ganz im Gegenteil
was composed and assembled using recordings which explore the tactile
sounds of various objects, sand, tree branches, and many odd stretches of
stone, as well as recordings of silences. The result is an absorbing,
panoramic and restrained sound collage with the subtlest hints of minimal
techno and trance interwoven with ambiences, indeterminate rhythms,
jury-rigged electronics and concrete sounds. The closing moments
encapsulate the cryptic, tribal, vaguely frightening feeling that permeates
the record, albeit in the sonic language of almost-pop, sourced from a
warbled new-age-tape. *

Klingensmith's approach to recording and sound in general here isn't
autobiographical, but could rather be described as empathetic. Recorded
across Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Nevada, and Death Valley, California
throughout 2020 and 2021, Ganz im Gegenteil makes use of sonic moments both
completely isolated as well as* familiar, and occupies the liminal space in
between the two. Recordings of domestic objects like jewelry, hairbrushes
and coffee cups are interwoven indeterminately with late evening
soundscapes of ancient natural wonders. The recording hovers in a limbo of
intimacy, fragility and pleasant uncertainty, a place you slowly recognize
yourself and others in. The work intensely appreciates the ones that
surrounded and informed it, but also recognizes that there is something
universal about the human experience, and, by extension, the way we
experience this work. We think the life we live can only be lived by us,
but quite the opposite is true." *
