The tenth instalment of WOLFGANG VOIGT's celebrated open concept series RÜCKVERZAUBERUNG harks back to
WOLFGANG VOIGT's "Gas" concept series and the albums "Königsforst", "Zauberberg" and "Pop", all established in the
In celebration of the opening of German national park Hunsrück-Hochwald, WOLFGANG VOIGT has conceived an
abstract, ambient-infused sound installation which can be experienced as a kind of "acoustic hike through the forest",
thanks to a series of loudspeakers allocated in a natural environment.
This approximately hour-long piece of music is a freeform improvisation on a classic sonic scenario made of strings and
winds, processed with electronic means. The rather elegiac billows of sound flow into each other and part again, like a
musical early morning fog in a "reverse-enchanted" woodland. They weightlessly trek alongside auspicious shadows of
atonality, across gentle hills and valleys, through gleaming clearings into eternity.
The visual equivalent to this fantasy can be found on the CD cover, by way of a hypnotically focussed view of a forest
and its intricacies.
Like with "Gas", both the music and the visual design of RÜCKVERZAUBERUNG 10 / NATIONALPARK formalize an
essentially "Voigtian" simultaneity of an idea of romanticism based on nature-induced rapture and an approach to the
beauty of surfaces trained by pop art.
