"Sekunden" - Forty minutes of alluring, atmospheric music. These sounds put me in mind of Brian Eno's "Music For Airports" or could perhaps be described as slightly electrified versions of Arvo Part's opulent "Spiegel im Spiegel".

"Sekunden" is a delicately flavoured soup of echoing piano, haunting spoken vocal samples, oceanic cymbal splashes and spiralling guitar. It contains spellbinding melodic peaks and ponderous, minimal troughs. Could "cinematic" be the word we are looking for? I believe so.

If your taste buds are tickled by the spatial music of Stars of the Lid or the glacial tones of Biosphere, then "Sekunden" is for you. It is one of those grand ambient releases that is not so much listened to as TOUCHED and TASTED.

As sure as eggs are eggs, it's mighty fine music.

HASH(0x96436b34) out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review 20 Jan. 2008
By Headphone Commute - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Swod is front running the evolution of modern classical composition with their second full length release on one of my favorite labels, City Centre Offices. The ping-pong approach of passing the files back and forth among two talented composers who met in Berlin in 1991, Oliver Doerell and Stephan Wöhrmann, cemented a perfect distance bridge for a marvelous result. Minimal piano melodies and lo-fi filter sweeps of hissing field recordings and "the voice of a long dead cinema icon" allow for new discovered samples on each rotation. Being a long time follower of Dictaphone (Oliver Doerell's project with Roger Döring), I instantly recognize the borrowed clicks, tweaked chirps, and many other electronic treatments that are so characteristic of Dictaphone's earlier releases on CCO. Wöhrmann's piano playing adds yet another dimension to the style, and gently shifts the genre from future jazz into neo classical. I listen to this album over and over, and it seems to perfectly accompany the sentimental feeling I get when I stare out the window and watch the world run through its senseless cycles. No wonder the duo has scored silent films. Highly recommended if you like Porn Sword Tobacco, Julien Neto, Xela, and of course Dictaphone. Favorite tracks: Ja, Sekunden, and Paintage.
HASH(0x96b16840) out of 5 stars Fantastic sophomore effort for Swod 7 Sept. 2009
By Derek Young - Published on

Swod's first release, Gehen, was filled with some promising ideas and a refreshing approach. Some tracks missed, others felt busy, but the piano wasn't smothered in effects (unlike many other electronic acts). The follow up, Sekunden, is a significant improvement. Rather than emphasizing studio trickery, it appears that the duo instead focused more on songcraft, as the melodies are more tuneful, the tracks progress better, and the album as a whole feels very cohesive. Still a chilly affair, with piano, hiss, electronic percussion and other sounds, if you found Gehen to be decent but wanted more, or are looking for some thoughful, interesting electronic music (without delving too close to neo-classical), give this a shot. The samples are nicely representative.
