May 9th, 2012 sees the release of centrozoon's "boner" (Unsung Records), another dive into unexplored territory and impossible combinations of references, where dozens of hours of music are distilled into an endlessly deep texture of frightening as well as captivating moods.

Taking their "instant composition" approach a step further, the trio has radically re-composed the initial recording sessions using a rule-based procedure to distribute the material within predetermined structures. With additional overdubbing and arranging, the resulting music is exceptionally dense in all musical dimensions, but nonetheless rendered lucid and transparent in the mix.

This new approach of compression and consolidation has also already carried over into centrozoon's live activity as showcased on the recent "We Will Tongue You Tour 2011/2012". Night after night, the audiences in this run of 13 concerts throughout Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Austria saw the band improvise highly structured compositions.

As a precursor to the release of "boner", the exposure of the tour also allowed the band to raise the album production costs through their (ongoing) "Bonestarter" fundraiser campaign hosted at http://www.centrozoon.de and on http://www.facebook.com/centrozoon.

Background History / Selected Discography

The music featured on the group's previous album releases include the electronica soundscapes of "blast" (2000), the disturbing free-form mayhem of "the cult of: bibbiboo" (2002), "angel liquor" (2006) or the reduced chamber electronics of "lovefield" (2007).

"boner" is centrozoon's first studio release with the second trio configuration in the band's history of 20 years. Whereas the first trio release, 2004's "Never Trust The Way You Are" with No-Man singer Tim Bowness, showcased the group's abilities to apply their unique compositional approach to pop music, "boner" goes to another extreme and, having added Tobias Reber to the classic line up of Bernhard Wöstheinrich and Markus Reuter in 2008, delivers instrumental music of a radical kind that is bound to challenge even dedicated fans of experimental musics.

Bonestarter has been running for half a year today! To celebrate, we will offer a free download of our upcoming 50 minute long digital release "Fire" on June 1 to everyone who places a Bonestarter order before that day (or has already done so). To everybody else, "Fire" will be made available for a small fee on July 14.
