Title: Emak 3
Label: Originalton West
"EMAK started in 1981 as a loose collaboration of several individuals interested in electronic music at a time when almost no one else seemed to be interested in electronic music at all.
The collaborators on EMAK 1:
Matthias Becker - owned a small 8-track studio at that time.
Kurt Mill - had the initial idea for the project and co-produced the first album with M. Becker.
Klaus Stühlen - a keyboard wizard of local fame interested in rare and special sounds - he worked as a freelance sessionplayer and composer of film music.
Michael Filz - an amateur muscian with a faible for electronic music.
EMAK 2: (released 1984) Becker, Mill, Stühlen again.
Michael Filz had left and Peter Fröhlich joined who contributed some tracks to emak 2 which reflected the NDW movement which was en vogue at that time.
Beckers track a lhorizon clervaux with its combination of gregorian chants and electronics already presents the concept which which Michael Cretu several years later should earn a fortune with his project "enigma".
EMAK 3:(released 1986) it`s Becker and Stühlen again, Fröhlich and Mill left.
New: U.Fuchs : bass player and multi-instrumentalist and M. Peschko: Soundengineer with a faible for minimal sound design.
Soundwise definetely the best of the emak records , featuring strange Harry Partch instrumentation on no city zoo in ottawa and the voice of the late John Peel on "sunken galleons an pirate pictures". To be honest: John Peel, who was still alive at that time did not like the track at all. Maybe because Becker had taken parts of Peels voice from an old tyrannosaurus rex album without having asked peel before doing so." - Minimal-Wave.org (Artist Bio). Small stash of this 1986 release (their 3rd LP - the first one was posted on Mutant Sounds recently). All mint/unplayed.
