Peter Frohmader - Amorika (1991)



Music inspired by "Frohmaders" visit to french brittany. Of its landscapes and ancient artifacts.

This release, especially the title track, is quite difficult to get into as there is a multitude of changes, almost like a more sampled avant garde "Homunculus" but less atmospheric.



However one is richly rewarded once you get used to all the fits and starts.On this journey there are elements of folk and medievil music and in certain parts it's not dissimilar to some "Univers Zero".

Besides frohmader on bass and synths there's also several guest contributing artists which add extra flavor.

A fine album but quite difficult to get into.
