LINE_130

LINE is proud to present 'Parallelen', a new full length solo recording by German electronic music pioneer Asmus Tietchens, his first ever digital-only release. Seven years have passed since his album 'Ornamente (zwischen Null und Eins)' (LINE_073) and Tietchens continues to create otherworldly artificial spaces with his precise minimalist compositions and unique sonic pallete/language.

With this collection of works, Tietchens poses the question:
"Parallels meet at infinity. Isn't this mathematical axiom a paradoxical allegation? Recycling sound material again and again, recycling the recycling the recycling ad infinitum—can that end at eternity?"

'Parallelen' is Asmus Tietchen's 7th album on LINE.
