recorded in berlin, january 2005

composed and performed by ulrich krieger

"to wolfgang stry"

59:22 minutes

EUR 15.– buy

"Up & down 23 can be played at any volume. Extremes will yield best results. The piece unveils very distinct characters being played either soft or loud. If played soft, it is a sort of “just intonation' ambient music. If played loud, a whole world of difference tones and combination tones will make your head buzz and spin with psycho-acoustics. Further, listening experience will vary greatly depending upon, if listened with headphones or over loud-speakers    ( - then again depending on your speakers and specially your position to them).

This is 'instrumental electronic music'. Down 23"
