Discography

Hinterlandt: “All Things Considered” USB Stick
2009 Hinterlandt Germany – All Things Considered displays the Gebhard/Voigt/Gutsch trio in full swing. This one is a bit of a rock animal, spiced up with some dub, some trumpet, and lots of guitar feedback. It’s loud, but it’s never boring.

Hinterlandt: “Automatic Teller Machine” CD
2006 Sopot Records Germany – The pop song spirit is in full bloom on this one. Friendly melodies are spun into a web of uncommon additives, making up eight little gems between guitar-based songwriting and electronic production.

Hinterlandt: “No Fixed Address” CDR
2006 Neus318 Japan – Evolving from its experimental background, Hinterlandt is clearly opening its doors to the pop song format. Guitars and vocals feature more prominently, at times it’s almost singer-songwriter stuff.

Hinterlandt: “New Belief System” CD
2004 Alias Frequencies Australia – Landmark record offering mostly electronic tracks with some hand-played instruments thrown in for good measure. Driving beats, unusual sounds, some harmonies, and an XTC cover song.

Hinterlandt / Zu / Can Can Heads: “Eccentrics#1? Split CD
2004 Tenzenmen Australia – CD featuring ca. 20 minutes each from Hinterlandt, Italy’s free-jazz-rockers Zu, and Finland’s Beefheart-meets-Flipper noisepunks Can Can Heads. Hinterlandt goes very rough and angry here.

Hinterlandt: “Poprekordt” CDR
2004 Dhyana Records Germany – First release to contain more conventional instruments, melodies, harmonies and rhythms. Still, all tracks are over 13 mintes. For some reason, the critics really loved this album.

Hinterlandt: “The Power Of Del te” CDR
2004 Grain Of Sound Portugal – Ultra-minimalist 43+ minute piece based on tiny sound bits and accidental noises. The spaces in between events outweigh the events themselves. Easily Hinterlandt’s most experimental output to date.

Hinterlandt and Karri O.: “Sitting, Going Places” CD
2003 Abflug Records Finland – Four tracks in 45 minutes, describing mind motions on long-distance flights. An ambient collage type style is balanced with electro-dance music. Includes a video by Fininsh minimal techno artist Karri O.

Hinterlandt: “Bo Cheng Hu” CDR
2003 CUE Records Japan – One monstrous 42+ minute composition that ventures from melancholy piano sound collage techinques via disturbing beats and electro-accoustic passages to long sections of pure, serious noise.

Hinterlandt: “Traumdeutung” CDR
2003 CUE Records Japan – Five weird and dreamy sound scapes in about 26 minutes. Psychedelic neo-digital rides through analogue cafes and cut-up markets. Early work in rough sound.
