Snake Figures Arkestra: Cooks & Devils (Zarek)
Label: Zarek    
Released in: Germany    

"Throughout the last 2-3 years & until now mainly active as an obscure recording project with a shared passion for little instruments and armed with childish curiosity this duo is oscillating between post-plunderphonics, electronica, psychedelic music, fake folk, noise & drones. Lots of strange atmospheres, many weird sounds. The live premiere of this obscure project was in 2008. The unit opperates with different guest musicians (Christoph Heemann, Michael Northam, ...) and can strongly change musical context, identity or instrumentation. The music of this mini-CD was the result of a short & intense phase of rehearsals at the Kuenstlerhaeuser Worpswede during Schick's residency and was recorded live at an opening at the Kunstverein Goettingen. Both members who back in different generations are deeply rooted in the Berlin experimental underground and are founders/members of bands as diverse as Perlonex, Phosphor, Blind Snakes (Ignaz Schick) or Kinn, Wooden Veil, Datashock, Cones (Marcel Turkowsky)."-Zarek
