Untight “Live at Theaterkapelle” (Free Download)
Untight is a band consisting of touch guitarist Alexander Dowerk and electronic musicians Bernhard Wöstheinrich and Tobias Reber. While each of them had previously collaborated with both of the others, their concert as Untight at the Theaterkapelle in Berlin marked the first time (with the exception of a short sound check) the trio has played together – ever. Listening to the two sets of tightly interwoven structures and organic blending of styles – ranging from classic synthesizer music and rock tropes to free-form improv and laptop electronics – it is perhaps hard to believe that none of the music was mapped out beforehand, the musicians simply trusting they would find a common course in the act of playing and listening. “Live at Theaterkapelle” documents the concert in its uncut entirety.
