Within the last 11 years, the brothers Lars and Dennis Hansen from Aarhus have made a remarkable career in a curious and somewhat unintelligible scene. Releases such as Six Silver Bullets, Was Kommunikation? and ... In Preparation of Machines to Fall were received with great interest by the media and audiences around the world, while in Denmark word was spread of the noise duo’s very alternative music. Never before has a radical exponent of electronic music reached such a big audience in Denmark. Among some it was an ‘über-refined’ trademark to wear as a badge - a name with ‘umlaut’ and a taste of avant-garde, radiating the provocative curiosity of the individual in a dehumanising age of machinery. Among others it signalled a prophetic drone of electronic possibilities capable of pushing the limits for many listeners.

The basic mood is elegiac and disturbing, but the exposed alienation is also perceived with a curious wonder. It is like moving in a cabinet of mirrors where darkness suddenly falls. Here the senses are hit by a typhoon of charged electricity, and it is definitely not a display of human power. It is as if the music transcends its own will through ethereal radiation and abandoned factory buildings. It is hard to comprehend how people can devise such a brutal form of aesthetics. Therefore it is also hard to imagine how this music has been made. The guitar and other apparent noise sources, which were predominant on Wäldchengarten’s early recordings, are no longer recognizable to the ear in their recent works. At certain points in the music one notices jacks summing magnetically in contact with the plug, but otherwise the corroding soundscapes display themselves as monsters of electricity overtaking each others prolonged blowing in the pipes of the purgatory organ.The sound image presents itself as an inseparable unity in which myriads of parallel sequences are constantly undergoing transformations.

Wäldchengarten’s debut album, “Was Kommunikation?”, released as a 10” at the end of 2000, was followed up by “Six Silver Bullets” 7” shortly before their firsteuropeantourinthefallof2001.The7”wasmeantasa touronly release and hopefully sold out when home again, but due to common misfortune and the general state of the world late 2001, the package was delayed and the records never available on the tour. The full-lenght release “...In preparation of machines to fall” was released in 2002, which led to the bands first work on Verato
Project: the “BeautyBoxer” 3”CD released in 2003. Things were moving in a new direction for the band in 2004, which first became evident on the mp3-single “Uncomfotable Positions” released by (now defunct) Fukk God! Let’s create, but didn’t unfold entirely until the release of “Electrical Bonding” (Desolation House, US) in 2005. Latest releases was “The Leech” 7” (Drone Records, Germany) and Black Rabbit (8KMob, Denmark).
