about

A deeply psychedelic and cinematic trip. That is what Spoq is offering to the listener with the avantgardistic album "Cracked Elements". Inspiration for this release came, when Wolfram Gruss, the writer and composer behind Spoq, worked on a soundtrack for a film about American contemporary artist Doug Aitken, but he took the sketches further and turned them into his own art form. This album takes the listener away into a surreal place somewhere beneath this world. Only lead by intuition and subconscous decisions, the outcome of the creation process incorporates alls sorts of acoustic and electronic instruments, synthesizers and a lot of processed noises and ambient sounds, which still play the same role as musical instruments in the compositions. Often familiar and strange at the same time "Cracked Elements" incorporates hypnotic rhythms and melodies with analogue, natural qualities and combines them digital bits and pieces. If one wanted to place this record into a genre it would be somewhere between Post Rock, Ambient, Trip Hop, Soundtrack and IDM. Yet, genres really do not matter here. "Cracked Elements" is often demanding and thought provoking, but once you drown in it, the reward is delightful!
