‘Schwere See’ (Heavy Sea) is all about the sea – the second album release by Peter Prautzsch pays a mournful and triumphant tribute to the nineteenth and early twentieth century quests of oceanic and polar explorers. Its widescreen aural panorama slowly shifts from modern electronic drone to blurred melodies – a densely textured voyage build from field-recording compositions and acoustic studio recordings, equally drawing from neo-classical ambient music and mircosounds. ‘Schwere See’ is a collection of subtle movements in sound, long-stretched hymns and fragile intervals – a melancholic and cinematic scope to the monumental struggles of these early expeditions into the Arctic Ocean and the continent of Antarctica.
