»Whenever we hear sounds we are changed, we are no longer the same after having heard certain sounds. And this is more the case when we hear organized sounds, organized by another human being ... music.«

Brian Eno

»For me, Krach is the sum of all possibilities, of all frequencies. Just as white noise contains all frequencies, just as white light contains all colors, Krach contains all possible melodies, all possible harmonies.«
