Excerpt from Asphodel's release of 'Metal Machine Music', performed by ZEITKRATZER.
Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music may be the most misunderstood work ever created by a popular musician. The original two record set, released in 1975, was mostly noise: feedback squalls, amplifier hums and the tortured screech of electronic gadgets. Directed by Reinhold Friedl, the 11-member ZEITKRATZER ensemble from Berlin gave Reed's album a thorough listen and and Ulrich Kreiger, the group's saxophon transcribed the sounds to create an acoustic music score for their ensemble to play live.
