After several compilation appearances (on
Gagarin Records, Wachsender Prozess and
Edition Stora) and performances at Battery Park
Cologne and Berlin Atonal, a 12" EP and the first
full-length CD "Trigger Happiness" by Hamburg's
GROENLAND ORCHESTER were released on
Staubgold in 1999.
Founded in 1998, the Groenland Orchester
produces electronic pop music of a special
quality, cleverly avoiding the aesthetic traps of
common dance music. The duo's background in
sound experimentation is obvious, but there's
always room enough for simple and sweet
The orchestra's conductors are REZNICEK (aka
Reznicek, Nova Huta) and Jyrgen Hall (aka
Gunter Adler). Reznicek (programming,
orchestration, electric guitar) is already
well-known for his experimental solo releases (on
Staubgold, Odd Size, Wachsender Prozess and
Meeuw Muzak), for his collaborations with
Klangkrieg and Felix Kubin and for his "Las Vegas
Show" with artist and painter Mariola Brillowska.
Jyrgen Hall (programming, transfer, bass guitar) is
a specialist for psycho-acoustics and
psycho-physics. He also releases solo works
under the pseudonym of GUNTER ADLER.
The Groenland Orchester's first CD was released
on Staubgold in October 1999. At the same time
Jyrgen Hall released his first GUNTER ADLER
CD on Staubgold titled "15 Electronic Pieces".
