On June 7th 2015 we did upload a review for the newest Ralf Rabendorn-recording, the Among Black Hearts EP, and because I am such a lazy guy, I’d like to refer to that review for some additional information about this talented guy (who also owns the ContraMusikProduktion-label).
Autumn 2012 was a sad period for Testphasen Negativ and the whole underground community, for Jarosch von der Grünen Alm unfortunately passed away. It was the last recording he did for / with Testphasen Negativ, and the first one to get released after Hostia.
Seven Morgues are (or were?) a project by Industrial / Ambient / Ritual Music artist Oren Ben Yosef, assisted by Ravid Zigdon, Yaron Allouche and some other human beings. They did record and release some material during last decade, and this release, the full length Brass Bells Poor Brothers!, is, if I am not mistaken, the latest release by this Israeli project.
Among Black Hearts is the newest pièce d’art by multi-disciplined artist Ralf Rabendorn: photographer, visual artist, music composer and performer (multi-instrumentalist and vocalist) and studio-guru, but he also runs his own Anti-Music label ContraMusikProduktion, nowadays totally in symbiosis with another great anti-trendy and anti-commercial, open-minded and underground-promotional label, Against it Records.
Recently I got in touch with Ralf ‘Ralli’ Rabendorn, a talented musician / producer / photographer, but also the guy behind the label ContraMusikProduktion (together with Against It Records known as convinced promotors for Anti-Music). The honest approach of this guy and both labels, as well as the projects on the labels’ roster, made me curious and interested, and willing to work with them. Ralli did send the Concreteweb headquarters some material which I did look forward to.
