"öhnöch," written by Köhn, originally released by Kraak in 1999. One-sided release in the Alice B. Toklas series. "The guardian angel of sonic excavation returns for this latest installment of scarcely numbered perennial tributes to the vanguard of dark ambient music. Creeping digitalized walls of sound pile on in this mounting of patient, protracted aural warfare, waged on the battlegrounds of a most unsettling prophecy of isolation and loss. Approaching out of a sunless nordic expanse, 'öhnöch' begins at a distance -- and then, suddenly, it is everywhere, its metallic tones overrun and seething over a singular distorted note of gothic dissonance, painting a scene of a steady apocalyptic decay: slow, painfully gorgeous disintegration. An unquestionable masterpiece, this haunting archaeology of the fringes of introspective left-field is a definitely disturbed take on the soundscape that manages to satisfy the most extreme scruples of aesthetic beautify and formal perfection."
