Asmus Tietchens
Performance: Asmus Tietchens

Asmus Tietchens (b. 1947, Hamburg), also known by the monikers Hematic Sunsets and Club of Rome, is one of the most prestigious sound artists in Germany.

He started to compose electro-acoustic music in the sixties, experimenting with tape recorders, tapeloops and synthesizers. In 1984 he publishes "Former letzter Hausmusik", where Tietchens’ real interest starts to appear: modifying sounds until they are unrecognizable and placing them in their adequate relationships with other sounds, following what the sounds themselves require. The final composition tries then to reflect the nature of the materials. Tietchens has used several sources to carry out this proposal; water, human voices and old tape recorders. Since 2000 Tietchens has worked again with synthesizers, but only as a source of sounds.

In his extensive discography he has recorded more than 50 LPs and CDs for numerous labels from around the world (Nurse With Wounds United Dairies, Sky Records, Störung, Mille Plateaux Ritornell, Staalplaat, Selektion, to name a few). Asmus Tietchens will publish in 2011 a new album, entitled Soirée, on Richard Cartier’s Label.
