German Electronic Music - Tarwater

Bernd Jestram and To Rococo Rot member Ronald Lippok met while playing in a punk band in former East Germany. Later, as time went on, they moved away from the fast and simple rhythms of punk in favour of a more subtle subversion, in which the structures of songs were reinforced and modified by fragments of spoken word and underwater electronic, as can be appreciated on their album Silur (1998).

Two years later they edited the surreal Animals, Suns & Atoms, which began where Silur had ended, with their monochromatic voices and tranquil and hypnotic loops. Later records include Dwellers on the Threshold (2002), The Needle Was Traveling (2005) and Spider Smile (2007).
