Augmented Landscapes is a collaborative work melding acoustic and electronic sound elements with field recordings.
The acoustic element is provided by double bass and prepared double bass, played along a continuum of conventional and extended techniques. The electronic element, which consists in the granular synthesis of acoustic double bass performances, broadens the instrument’s sound palette to encompass varied and unconventional colorations.
When these elements are matched to the overheard sounds captured by these field recordings, a perspective emerges that is analogous to a hypothetical landscape augmented by a multiplication of dimensions both sonic and spatial. Points of reference shift as aural features constantly rearrange themselves in relation to each other, creating a series of gestalts in which figure and field alternate, blend and separate in varying combinations. Here familiar sounds mutate into something unfamiliar before becoming familiar once again.

“This EP by Klaus Marten is a good showcase of the diversity of sound experiments this artist is swimming in. A good invitation to possibly explore more from where this came from! Be free to tease yourself with this EP…” – Yeah I Know It Sucks blog
This is a mini-LP of mine from a couple years ago called September. As I listen now, what strikes me about this song is the dreamy, woozy quality of the shoegaze-esque songs present on this collection. In my opinion, the ubiquitous nature of these textures (broken up by a couple of harder-edged tracks so not to cross the line into monotony) makes for a consistent and singular listening experience, from which many ideas and themes can be inferred.
This album of mine, Satiety, I think is really good for two reasons: 1, each track to me is really great at capturing and even painting a certain mood. Each track is its own world. And yet, it is also incredibly cohesive considering that, as the whole thing seems to combine to form a singular statement, whatever that may be. The largely abstract and open nature of my instrumentals allows the listener to draw his or her own conclusions.
Klaus Marten was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York, where he spends his days working, hanging out with friends, buying records, and making music on his laptop. The varied influences of My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Brian Wilson, Animal Collective, The Ventures, The Beatles, Sonic Youth, Deerhunter, and Japancakes (among others) provide a basis for his guitar-based music, which combines shoegaze, rock, surf, country, general experimentation, and other muddled-together genres into broad-ranging tracks as simple as solo guitar works and as complex as lush dream-pop soundscapes…and everything in between.
Hi, my name is Klaus Marten, I am based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY, and I would love it if you could check out my latest release, Master Tape, which is available here: https://klausmarten.bandcamp.com/album/master-tape. My music I guess could be described as generally experimental, shoegaze-leaning, but mostly guitar-based and often laden in reverb. I think my music is something different: it is oftentimes abstract, in a way that gets your attention, but also in a way that allows you to apply your own meaning to it. I have heard some really interesting interpretations of my stuff in other reviews, and would be fascinated to have your take on it as well. I would hugely appreciate it if you could take the time to listen, and I hope to hear from you soon!
“The digit ZERO appeared in the center of the screen… Then other digits, such as 1,2,3,4,5… floated to the center from different sides, creating waves… Then the waves became liquid. These waves of digits had the ability to create any form, but they didn’t know what forms to become… Finally they started to produce their own structures… It was my dream the first time I heard this album!” – InSpectr
SOT45 presents a collection of previously unpublished recordings, gathered throughout the 10 years of the project’s existence.Starting off with 3 early found sound constructions, ritualistic in their abrasiveness, the album then progresses to a minimalist deconstruction of a choir loop, slowly reducing it to a set of drones. It is then followed by two tracks from a discarded Momolot remix album – two approaches to rock music deconstruction – one busy and whirring, the second one blurry and dreamy. “Wintery Russia” is an ambient piece made out of a mangled cassette tape with accordion melodies. The set is concluded by an experiment in chance operations on a set of found sound samples, consitituting a disconcerting bouncy collage adventure.
