RUDOLF EB.ER - BRAINNECTAR Double CD (Schimpfluch Associates)

RUDOLF EB.ER - BRAINNECTAR Double CD (Schimpfluch Associates)


Rudolf Eb.er (*1967) is active since the mid 80's and known for most obscure and radical soundworks, often under the name Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck. Eb.er combines outsider art and actionism with extreme sonics and cut-up de/compositions - expanding these to purification rituals and psycho-physical exercises with the goal to detach from the ego, to realize ultimate reality and to explore death.

Brainnectar is Eb.er's most developed program to date, combining psychodynamic audio-environments built from specific nature-sounds and extreme acoustics, often including ecstatic elements on instruments of shamanic origin. Binaural beats as well as isochronic tones stimulate a direct neural reaction to this unique and unheard audio-art. In addition, the grand lady of japanese extreme music - screamvocalist Junko Hiroshige (Hijokaidan) - participates on several tracks throughout this double CD package.

The title Brainnectar is derived from tantric techniques raising psycho-physical energy, or inner fire, from the perineum up to the top of the brain, from where it drips (as nectar). This consciousness-expanding heating and dripping during creation and/or reception of Brainnectar is given priority over any musical aesthetics.

"Once we open up to the flow of the energy within our own body, we also open up to the flow of energy in the universe." - Wilhelm Reich

Schimpfluch Associates is a label founded in 2013 by Dave Phillips (Zürich) and Rudolf Eb.er (Osaka). Its focus is on works of reference by sound artists associated with Schimpfluch.

Schimpfluch was originally founded by Rudolf Eb.er as a label, 1987 in Zürich, a name soon annexed by the loose collective of sonic activists known as Schimpfluch-Gruppe: Rudolf Eb.er/Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck, Joke Lanz/Sudden Infant, Marc Zeier/G*park and Dave Phillips/dp. Schimpfluch art appears in many forms (audio composition, performance, rituals, painting, photography, installations etc) and extends metaphysical knowledge and awareness. Schimpfluch exponents are highly regarded in the global underground; the 2012 festival "Extreme Rituals: A Schimpfluch Carnival - celebrating the legacy of Schimpfluch", held at the Arnolfini Centre For Contemporary Arts in Bristol, is just one example thereof.
