"ohrenbetäubende stille" is a project founded by Christian Pensel and Hannes Kretzer.
It started in summer 2013 as an experiment to bring ambient music back to stage. "Music for the moment"; music that is born intuitively in improvisation and an extraordinary way of treating instruments.
They adapt the grammar of Post-Rock; digital instruments are deliberately avoided and are replaced instead by electric guitar, Rhodes piano and saxophone (among many others), which are modulated through analog effects - sometimes beyond recognition.
"Music that breathes, sprouts and grows - beautiful and fleeting as a soap bubble."
