A-TON is pleased to announce RAUCH, a sonic interpretation of the work of photographer Friederike von Rauch, composed collaboratively by Berlin-based producers Felix K, Marcel Dettmann, Sa Pa and Simon Hoffmann.
Arranged and mixed by Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann, the recording stands in dialogue with von Rauch’s architectural images of post-World War II European monasteries, including La Tourette by Le Corbusier and Iannis Xenakis near Lyon, Roosenberg Abbey near Ghent and Maria Regina Martyrum in Berlin.
The images will be exhibited together with the music on this LP as part of an installation for von Rauch’s solo show insgeheim, on from November 9 to January 11 at the Goethe-Institut Paris during the international Paris Photo art fair in November 2017.
RAUCH is part of an ongoing artistic collaboration between Marcel Dettmann and Friederike von Rauch, which includes 2011’s Ash installation and three photographic works for Dettmann releases on Ostgut Ton. Friederike von Rauch’s work also appeared in Berghain’s 2014 exhibition 10, as well as in the accompanying book Berghain | Kunst im Klub (Hatje Cantz, 2015).
RAUCH will be released on December 1 on vinyl and in digital formats. A-TON is a new platform of Berghain’s in-house imprint Ostgut Ton focussing on ambient, archive and alternative music. It is an outlet for music outside of the club context.
