'Tiden' leads to a dead end

‘Tiden'

Roedelius Schneider (Bureau B Records)

★★

The promotional material for this collaboration between electronic musicians Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Stefan Schneider describes their work as “absolute music — music which desires only to be itself without effects and with the declared intent of involving the listener in his emotional, inventive game.” Got that? For me, the album is the musical equivalent of Siberia. Not necessarily cold, but certainly nondescript. I wait for that special moment, that landmark, that city, but it never arrives. Instead the listener goes through one village after another, arriving at one, forgetting the last. It's pretty — but where the hell is Yakutsk already?
