Jürgen Karg


JÜRGEN KARG is a classic-period obscure and eccentric German artist, mastering the sound of electronic conceptual music with an extra touch of experimentation and loud-punctured art. His only solo record is the rare "Elektronische Mythen" ("Electronic Myths"), released in 1977. Kärg is more known however for his collaboration in Wolfgang Dauner's "Psalmus Dei", along jazz artist Eberhard Weber and other musicians.

JÜRGEN KARG is a classic-period obscure and eccentric German artist, mastering the sound of electronic conceptual music with an extra touch of experimentation and loud-punctured art. His only solo record is the rare "Elektronische Mythen" ("Electronic Myths"), released in 1977. Kärg is more known however for his collaboration in Wolfgang Dauner's "Psalmus Dei", along jazz artist Eberhard Weber and other musicians. As much as Dauner's successful album speaks of profound (and somewhat eclectic) music, Karg's album is not to be skipped by connoisseurs, being on the verge of heaviness, trippiness, avant-garde and cerebral electronic convulsions, still staying focused on complex, atypical, intense and resourced music.

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.
