Work101

phase 1 / start-sequence

it hasn´t been late enough yet. some units were still in movement consistently. though the illumination in this obviously distanced environment did not spend enough light to recognize the lines in the expressions of their faces. nevertheless this commencing process seemed to generate something more all-embracing as could ever be expected from outside.

phase 2 / work101

the units started their work. for days. for weeks. over months. they were working meticulously – once they were seen filled with emotion in melancholy, the other moment nearly technically mechanical. fast and efficient, concentrated they went to work. quickly, getting to the point. it still came across so unreal, that indeed such units fullfilled one single deed. lo and behold – it took contures! it seemed almost uncomprehensible, what at a later view was received disbelievingly by the outside world.

phase 3 / disillusion / dimensionsbruch

living units in living change still appear and disappear to celebrate cooperation within the kollektiv.net – nearly invisible. while they are part of this morphing sound-construction, they partially loose old-sound-contact. this opens new pathes. so – it still hasn´t been late enough: watching each other, suspecting each other not to be concentrated enough, suspecting each other not to take part, not to merge in the final conclusion – but exactly in climax of suspision the outstanding flashes on! just for a moment – there it is! there it was! that´s what the units were searching for! gladness, vision, pleasure – new great music seems to grow up – apparently out of nothing.

Excerpt from Facebook

Nahton

In continuous morphogenesis kollektiv has blaized it´s strail, gently, but energetic evolving it´s musical localization

The release of the last album Eichenriegel [2009, Danse Macabre], is only four years back.
On 13th September finally another studio album is ready:

Nahton.

Ten Songs in well known Das-Kollektiv.net-sound, developed into a modern pop style, with unmistakable ’80s flair.

THE ALBUM

Partly influenced, partly accompanied by powerfull synth pads presents The Kollektiv.net even more developed sound. Fascinating, sometimes odd sounding melodies meet fine, yet often profound lyrics. So the music makers produce a unique atmosphere – a newly-launched Das-Kollektiv.net-sound, its roots and origin are also clear.

From the start of the new album has a great, fantastic sound – and punishes the first song his own name – he has everything but Massive Schwächen (massive weaknesses)!

The distinctly 80s-influenced sound of Sieben continues with the new Das-Kollektiv.net-Hymn Treu until the Sonnenwinde (winds of sun) carry the listener not only into space but also into memories.

But the dark and melancholic origin of the band is found unmistakably in Ich seh es nicht as much again as in Wer willst du sein, in which case the character of Das-Kollektiv.net is to hear. They are obviously influenced by maybe the best electric sound bands ever, not least recognizable because of the warm sounds of the saxophone.

Between dream and illusion, the album moves through from Von Anbeginn to Kindes Garten, which is obviously related to real events.

Finally, Das-Kollektiv.net really not has to ask for Vergebung (forgiveness ) at least with the penultimate title, certainly not with a view of the intense contact with final song Lauf!

So listen now with all your senses!

Remanufactured

from Wikipedia: is the process of disassembly and recovery

After “Eichenriegel” came to the actual musical work, a completely new, surprising aspect: Numerous requests reached Das-Kollektiv.Net, always with the same question: Could we build a remix of one or another song?

This theme was for Das-Kollektiv.Net not previously employed – now the question was present. And so was born next to creating new songs a second task with new challenges: Set your own music in question! Recreate your own music! Designe yourself not only forward, evolve in all directions! Select well!

Do not destroy, continue the musical story and create – MORE!

For music and content it was obvious: It wouldn´t be enough and it may not be enough to turn just a little at the controls! It wouldn´t be enough and it may not be enough to use just the existing recording studio-technics and systems!
This claim in the heads and in the minds Das-Kollektiv.Net turned its first from outside required task.

Thus, a small number of songs was finally remixed in a new form! ReManufactured!

But at the same time the new plant grew – and even if its completion now had to take longer, it already took form: new , powerful and mighty!

Eichenriegel

Nur durch die dunkle Pforte geht man der Heimat zu

In music, content, technology and personnel Das-Kollektiv.Net has developed over the past four years. A clearer speech in music and content is paired with a modern, auditors and listeners of the project Das-Kollektiv.Net facing approach.

New and more voices carry the music on the dance floor, contents are insistent and go directly into the ear and into the mind! At the same time the musical development of their power unfolds, from the first to the last note of all there songs strong presence.

In content, Das-Kollektiv.Net moves in this album between seemingly generally considered issues such as the idea and claim of religions, joy and frustration in a regulated life or melancholic-sentimental philosophizing on the one hand. Furthermore it will always flash back to the extremely concrete dealing with various topics on how the actual death of the son of a friend, profound human connection over long distances, or, albeit metaphorical, downfall of the strong individual on the high seas.

The whole album helped the formation Das-Kollektiv.Net although a significant increase in brand awareness, particularly in the areas of Eastern Europe and South America. But still Das-Kollektiv.Net wants more than the mere combination of rhythm, melody and text. The aim is to be: create music! Create sound! Evolve!

So are the words of the song “Moment” message and at the same time new aim to themselves: “Dies ist nicht das Ende!”

Das was bleibt, hat keinen Namen

Nichts davon geblieben

The aim slumbered for a long time in all participants : not only to consume music, to imitate or interpret, but to create music itself. This was sense and drive and can be heard in “Das, was bleibt, hat keinen Namen”!

Filled with sound, musically and musical experiences, perceptions and preferences, filled with ideas, beliefs, and knowledge, the units went to their first joint work.

Musically on the one hand between known, danceable and on the other hand abstract and lesser-known movements was created and developed, step by step, the striking and distinctive sound: Das-Kollektiv.Net! There were also the textual content in combination of concentration, high standards and growth.

Although giving to recognize only upon closer listening, the individual topics is quite clear to hear, how concrete alternating with abstract, while it keeps the balance. On the one hand the horrifying dominions of recent German history with war and suffering of women and men, mothers and sons, as well as dealing with the subject of war in the course of 2000 years of history and how it was treated.

At the same time also always music and content abstract variations of melancholy pleasure. Whether shadowy end time scenarios, unhappy loves or the game with the transience of all being – it is a gloomy-sounding, but still wide sprectrum in this first album.
