Three recordings from percussionist Hans Lingens in his 2nd solo album on Umlaut, working at the intersection between improvised and composed forms of experimental music: "Nacht", a montage of prerecorded layers of mostly rolls and brush sounds; and two recordings in one take using close miking as he performs on a single cymbal with mallets ("Hund") and a bass bow ("Manatee").

sample the album:
""Nachthund marks Hannes Lingens' second solo release on Umlaut Records after Pieces for Percussion (2018). Like its predecessor, Nachthund favors continuous sounds over percussive accents: "Nacht" is a montage of prerecorded layers of mostly rolls and brush sounds while both "Hund" and "Manatee" have been recorded in one take by use of one cymbal each with mallets and bass bow respectively. Close miking and soft playing techniques are employed throughout the album to explore sounds from within the body of the instruments.
With input gains high, recordings had to take place at night in order to avoid any outside noise to bleed in. On "Hund" a barking dog can be heard deep down in the tide of the bowed cymbal, adding a sense of actual space in a music that - due to its confusing dynamics and lack of rhythmic accentuation - otherwise offers little orientation."-Umlaut
