CHFS - AUS(R)ASTEN (3"CD, private) : You don't see many pressed up 3"CDs these days, its all CDR. I don't think I ever heard of Christian F. Schiller, also known as CHFS, who plays bass drum and piano on 'aus(r)asten', which I can't translate. Certainly one of the more curious records of this week. It seems to be a kind of improvised piece, or perhaps sketched out along various paths Schiller wanted to follow. Playing sustain like chords towards the end for instance (think Palestine), or the solitary bangs on piano and bass drum in the beginning, or, at the very start some low frequency sound (fast playing on the bass drum, I imagine, rather than something electronic). Like I said a most curious piece that seems to be coming from nowhere and packed as a small 'arty' release. (Frans de Waard / VITAL WEEKLY NR. 679, WEEK 21, 2009 / http://vitalweekly.net/679.html)
