about

The Méthodes Thérapeutiques give full satisfaction to all claims and demands of the four active members of the group, resulting in an effervescent and gushing still life of the intrinsic emotions never surfaced before.

Filled with shame and self-restraint, sound producers and listeners alike will pull themselves back to their ephemeral conceited shells to contemplate further steps of emanation: “the saturation, the saturation is short at the bottom and crooked at the top."

---

Therapeutische Hörgruppe focuses on the development and implementation of conceptual methods in the fields of sound art and electroacoustic music. In context of installations, performances and concerts, site-specific characteristics are investigated, integrated and thematically refined.

The relationship between the actual sonic event, the point-of-listening and auditory perception phenomena are of particular importance.

VITAL WEEKLY 1327:

THERAPEUTISCHE HÖRGRUPPE - DANCE TILT / TRANCE TILT (cassette by Superpolar Taips)

We are at cassette single 28 now, with music by Therapeutische Hörgruppe, of whom I had not heard before. The Bandcamp page isn't forthcoming with much more information. Partly lifted from some advertisements and statements such as "focuses on the development and implementation of conceptual methods in the fields of sound art and electroacoustic music. In context of installations, performances and concerts, site-specific characteristics are investigated, integrated and thematically refined". T

he website shows various concert pictures, which made me think of the laptop generation and maybe also from the two pieces of music on offer here. I was thinking of Farmers Manual. Perhaps not the same in terms of music, but certainly in their freeform approach to sound. Taking them from various sources, cutting, editing, sampling them in real-time, and cooking up two ultra-quick ditties, in which 'Dance Tilt' is dominated by voice and crashing low-resolution samples and has a remarkable noisy delicacy and 'Trance Tilt' is held together by a rather effective beat (nothing to dance here, move on). Everything else is pushed to the background. Any other label would probably have switched these around and made 'Trance Tilt' the A-side, but this is the world of Superpolar; they do things differently. (FdW)

Bad Alchemy Magazin 114:

THERAPEUTISCHE HÖRGRUPPE Dance Tilt / Trance Tilt (superpolar Taïps, SPT Cassingle #28, C-5):

In der im November 2020 mit 'The Inverted Amblyopiac' von Tiger Village in Cleve­land begonnenen Kölner Cassette-Single-Serie finde ich – schluck - zwischen The Master Musicians of Dyffryn Moor aus Wales, bleed Air, dem Labelmacher selber, und Orca, Attack! in New Orleans mit Harald Sack Ziegler nur einen einzigen vertrauen Namen. Doch nun mit der Hörgruppe, also Dirk Specht & Co., die, zurück von ihrem Exotica-Trip „Enchanted Isle of Entanglement“ (Flexi-disc, 2020), da zu viert ein paar Kölsch zwitschern, kommt ein zweiter hinzu. Sie lassen ihre Electronics rau zirpen und impulsiv rauschen und flattern. Dazu rappt eine feminine KI emotionslos einen zu schwer verständlichen Text, um ihn als lyrisch oder sonstwas zu identifizieren. B-seits folgt ein stereophon sprudelndes Enchanted-Souvenir, mit komischen Trickfilmstimmen zu holzigem Tamtam. Mir und allen weiteren Hörer*n in unseren vergänglichen, eingebildeten Hüllen bleibt es dazu überlassen, über weitere Schritte der Emanation nachzudenken und über die kryptische Diagnose: „Die Sättigung, die Sättigung ist unten kurz und oben krumm.“Musik in der Nussschale als Brainfood für Nüsseknacker.
