Soundartist Denise Ritter
aka Schachtanlage Gegnort
has been doing her electroacoustic sound art since 1997, composing industrial noise music by recording sounds of the coal and steel industry and coal-mining.
On 'Aufgelassen' she creates a blend of darkness and mystery, creating pulsating sound worlds by using the recordings of industrial sounds of pounding machines, voice samples of steel workers, sounds of steel, stone and delay rooms. Most recordings were made deep under earth in mines or steel-mills. Those sound worlds have on one hand organic structures, on the other hand mechanical structures, in total 'Aufgelassen' offers quite various yet exciting, deep and almost mysterious atmospheres.
