about

though he started as a dj that focused on electronic sounds, ahnst anders wanted to present his own creative output to the public. so in 2003 he replaced record players with musical instruments. he now works as a stage and studio performer who merges collages of noises, organic sounds and electronic music into a inimitable blend of dark ambient and experimental music. his debut album 'dialog' was released in 2007 simultaneously with his first concert at maschinenfest. following this were various remixes, collateral sound work for art exhibitions/installations and a collaborative album with config.sys. now ant-zen presents ahnst anders' second full length album.

'many ways' is based on different field recordings of natural sources (fire, water, wind), found objects (chains, metal breakers) and different daily environments (street sounds, trains). using the inspirations received from these recordings anders transformed the raw sound into tracks that range from ambient to breaks. during the production process he kept his senses and spirit as receptive as possible, treading many paths to achieve this result. this open-mindedness to try 'many ways' named the album.

the music on this release combines ambient soundscapes with a huge variety of rhythmic patterns - from tribal breaks to slow dub-influenced cadences. ruminant keyboard layers with added field samples generate a mixture of soothing and unsettling atmospheres. (dark) ambient, musique concréte and repetitive beats offer a soundtrack for a large number of moods. as anders elaborates: "music is.. the elixir for impetus, joy, emotion.. every day we are exposed to disturbing strong sonic waves; why shouldn't we turn these into something interesting?"
