:::::: AUSKLANG ::::::
'Chronos' is the debut album of Berlin-based trio AUSKLANG. Presenting a perfect blend of ambient and post-rock music, Chronos traces all the veins of rock, from a grandiose ensemble sound of a cinematic soundtrack to the delicate natures of ambient soundscapes. Each song has its own pulse and signature, giving a new feeling each time.
'Chronos' is a reflection on our perception of time. Time is both guiding and limiting us. Music is a time-based art with clear structures yet holds the power to transmit a feeling of timelessness.
AUSKLANG creates that sentiment with layers of reverberating guitars and warm synth pads hovering over solid drums. The songs are taken from long sessions of improvisation and were later re-arranged and enhanced by additional tracks of piano, french horn and tape recordings.

The brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke or Brueder Selke, mostly known as CEEYS are East German composers and poly-instrumentalist recording artists and performers based in Potsdam, nearby Berlin.
While mainly connected to the fields of contemporary classical and ambient music, their works balance these genres.
BS perform an idiosyncratic style that is characterised by intimate and playful improvisations and a rather reduced approach to contemporary composition.
By exploiting their knowledge of songwriting, textures and repetitive patterns, they create an experimental but accessible minimalism between the avant-garde and pop that
incorporates elements of jazz, ambient and classical chamber music.
Indebted to their childhood environments, their music is as much a product of their childhood landscapes, as it is the modern world in which they live.
Their award-winning work is provoked by their urge to explore recollections of their youth, both before and after the fall of the Communist regime, and
to apply those lessons and influences to contemporary music.
In October 2020 they released “Hausmusik” which saw John Lewis describe it as “...metronomic, Nyman-ish miniatures that sound as if they’ve been plotted on graph paper;
tracks like Reunion see them jabber rhythmically, with Sebastian playing pizzicato; elsewhere they explore texture – creaking strings, bashed wood, triple stopping –
over minimal one-chord drones with a horror-movie intensity.“ The Guardian writes.
New music and projects are set for release in 2021.
