Strange and artistic, Kärg's work shows the late 70s aren't at all dried out of electronic abstract experiences. Brewed with a professional gear of electronic/processing equipment, the album, composed of two side-epics, is both a schematic and free, incisive work, starting from the base of free-synth electronics and dense artificial sound and extending to a fragmentarily drilled concept of art and a surreal impression of a pressured, clamping "kosmische" dream, in light of experimental and less-musical style connectors. "Elektronische Mythen" is, at the surface, an outburst of programmatic electronic art and a technical/mechanical work of sounds, becoming, in the essence, a serious, minimal and provocative play. Karg's album is referenced as a mixing (or shifting, in an random and torrid way) work of concrète electronic (the "academic" side) with krautrock, electroacousticism, tone/tape music and space, surreal, abstract or noise bits (the "hyper-artistic" side), names like François Bayle, Edward ZAJDA, Conrad SCHNITZLER, Asmus TITCHENS, KLUSTER or STOCKHAUSEN coming in mind the same way. Jürgen Karg's solitary classic is definitely a demanding, obscure, artistic recommendation, fitting in the electronic prog current more in an extensive than formal way. Read more on Last.fm.
