Rolf Trostel


Rolf Trostel is a German musician who plays classical electronic music combined with modern ambient soundscapes. Rolf Trostel brought, relatively, fresh wind with his albums, "Inselmusik", "Two Faces", as well as "The Prophet", at the beginning of the 80s, into the electronics scene run, when it was coming into a Punk, new Wave and/or new German wave. With the brand of new digital PPG Wavecomputer 360, he produced sounds, at the time hinted by the near-handed (already) atmospheres of today's Tech-tone, for the prototype of the Drumcomputers.

Rolf Trostel is a German musician who plays classical electronic music combined with modern ambient soundscapes. Rolf Trostel brought, relatively, fresh wind with his albums, "Inselmusik", "Two Faces", as well as "The Prophet", at the beginning of the 80s, into the electronics scene run, when it was coming into a Punk, new Wave and/or new German wave. With the brand of new digital PPG Wavecomputer 360, he produced sounds, at the time hinted by the near-handed (already) atmospheres of today's Tech-tone, for the prototype of the Drumcomputers. The first two albums, published in a self direction, as well as the "Prophet" work, for which the Norwegian Uniton Label won the copyright, came restored, about twenty years later, not only in a compilation, but in an accesible format. Berlin label Manikin took care of Rolf Trostel's cultural inheritance and published his three early eighties albums into a double CD, since the Vinyls are hardly a future generation's remaint.

The rough entire of the works Rolf Trostel achieved reminds of ASHRA ("Correlations"-like);even with the guitars missing, the rhythms and the aesthetics are a plus (since the Electronic Wave was, back then, arising. Rolf Trostel also released "The Narrow Gate To Life", in 1983, this fourth expression being the most obscure of all. To the gentle idea that that Trostel's electronic fixations is equal to ASHRA's late motivations (or even to some Jarre digital attitude, by other reviewer's random call), there can be appreciate, perhaps, a late Berlin School contact, one clearly addictive to the electronic render. Trostel's music paraphrases a lot of maelstrom into sequencing, sound foreboding or atmospheric uptempos, bringing a space of artificial music in touch with vivant leads. Sequences seem always made having in mind a combination of high register splashes and much deeper bass rumblings; plus, since the 80s, however early or quick-phasing, put the sequencing in a synch, Trostel's efforts are talented and interesting.

Whether it is particularly impressive, very strident or of sonic confidence, the new generation, promoted around these times, gets congratulated by the presence of this artist.
