LINE is proud to present E-Menge the new installment of the Mengen series from influential German electronic music pioneer Asmus Tietchens. LINE will be releasing the subsequent works in this series. Epsilon-Menge means Epsilon quantity.
The four pieces of this recording represent my aesthetic approach to space. Space not as in a “spacey” or astronomic sense, but space as an extension of the three-dimensional region in which we exist. Caused by acoustic foregrounds and acoustic backgrounds, spaces of different capacities occur. In the early 20th century the fine arts began to abolished spatiality, I wish to restore it by sound.
– Asmus Tietchens, 2005
