Waldempfänger / Wood-Receiver / Klanginstallation von Max Würden

Die WALDEMPFÄNGER sind Klangobjekte. Bei einem Aufbau von mehreren Objekten in einem Raum, entsteht eine Klanginstallation. Die einzelnen WALDEMPFÄNGER „empfangen“ einen Stream aus dem WWW, dem WoodWideWeb und spielen diesen bei Inbetriebnahme ab. So wird eine ambiente Naturklangkulisse in die direkte Umgebung ausgestrahlt, die sich positiv auf Körper und Geist auswirkt und so einen angenehmen Gegenpol, einen Ruhepol zu einem stressigen Alltag bildet, auch einen Gegenpol zum WorldWideWeb, welches auch Stress und Druck in uns auslösen kann. Sie unterstützten so eine Entschleunigung des Individuums in seinem Alltag durch wohltuende Waldklänge, die sowohl bei voller Konzentration, als auch im Hintergrund gehört werden können.

11.09. bis 19.09.2020  / GALERIE LINDEMANN  / Köln

REICH & WÜRDEN live project

Reich & Würden is my new cooperation together with LUIS WEIß.

We started with a cooperation for the POP AMBIENT compilation by KOMPAKT RECORDS Cologne in 2018. I´ve made a track with sounds from Luis flugelhorn. Since then we have found our basis in sound. Together we produced a very fine live-set and play some special concerts in the last month (KOMPAKT RECORDS STORE, KILOMETRÈ 25 PARIS). More shows are on the way…..
We are currently working on our debut album.

Watch a live show at KOMPAKTRECORDS STORE in COLOGNE, December 2020 here >>>


Format draws from its Latin origin: “formatus”, meaning “to be formed”. Over two years, Germany’s Max Würden produced a variety of tracks using completely different approaches. It wasn’t until they were placed together in unison that the strengths from the variety of productions came together. 

Max’s studio recordings lined up alongside live performances; field recordings of foot-steps and sounds from deep forests amongst broken leaves and custom synthesizers; processed guitar-loops weave amongst soaring ambient pads and energetic driving analog pulses segue classic 90’s ambient depicting the very furthest reaches of space. Max’s abstract impressions were weaved together and Format was born.

The result captures the very best of Max’s multi-disciplinary techniques we’ve come to admire throughout his many productions and collaborations over the years with the likes of Thore Pfeiffer and his releases on Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series. 

Format can be enjoyed as individual tracks, one mixed journey (digital) or as unique mixed-edits for vinyl. Featuring artwork by Noah M / Keep Adding, who unfolds the track’s unique individual elements from the front into one expansive inside gatefold. Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri @ Black Knoll Studio and pressed on opaque purple vinyl, 500 copies worldwide. 


Release date: June 10th 2019 on A STRANGELY ISOLATED PLACE
