Drawing In Sound by Christoph Lammers and Andreas Usenbenz

Christoph Lammers and Andreas Usenbenz | Drawing In SoundKlanggold (12”/DL) Abstraction is the quality of dealing with ideas rather than events or the freedom from representational qualities. That being said, we’re about to venture into something bearing the above principal, but in a more fluid way. We’ll deal with abstraction, ideas and an event, free from strict representation. In spring of 2018, experimental sound artist Andreas Usenbenz (Ulm, Germany) and illustrator Christoph Lammers (Munich) came together and tried to approach the concept of “meadow”.
