Funken presents Berlin-based solo clarinet-player and performer Andreas Ernst aka Randweg with his first album Equisetales. Randweg portrays the theme of a journey that moves (and represents a thread between) while sketching the tiny little things beside the pathway. Following his debut tracks and collaborations with Ellen Allien on Sool, and live appearances with as well as a contribution to Der Dritte Raum's Swing Bop, Ernst presents nine tracks on Equisetales with a Krautrock and jazz flair, coupled with ethereal sonic environments, and a surprising variety of sounds that come from his clarinet. It could be said that Equisetales is carefully sequenced to a narrative structure: beginning with "Army of Ants," a 5/4 time signature track that almost visualizes the vitality of formicary, and then ending in the mellow wilderness of "Yofa." Randweg utilizes few electronic instruments. Clarinet and the natural resonances of organic materials (usually by way of home-made contraptions) become his main instruments, and as his live shows often attest to, Andreas Ernst can almost even turn full audience into a woodwind capable of producing beautiful music.
