machines like the "böhmat" are used as to compliment element
(electronic harmony) for the musical surface. besides the tunes that sounded
rather like a harmony, which were lined up in accords or in an arpeggiator
rhythm, klangstabil offered, for the first time, the opportunity of demonstrating
how easily the electronic drum could be used (which sounded so real!).
these new possibilities were immedialtely understood and contributed ideally
to a new kind of music, a music which continues to find more and more
appreciation - electronic music. the old analogue drum machines, the ancestors
of today's more advanced digital drum machines, opened up a new path for
musicians who were, for whatever reason, unable to play the drums themselves.
those machines offer completely new possibilities, along with a completely
new sound. klangstabil is trying to express through the böhmat that in
spite of its age, this particular machine still has a lot of creative
potential. one just simply has to appreciate it for what it is.
