Discography

In Between


September 2014

As its name suggests, In Between lives and breathes in the spaces around each carefully played note. This exquisitely subtle and detailed five-track EP resonates with chilly grandeur and heartening warmth. Across spacious vistas reminiscent of the collaborative work of Brian Eno and Harold Budd, delicate yet assured melodies unfurl before being subjected to delicate manipulation. This is enveloping, minimal music with a fragility that belies its emotional potency. Opening with the shimmering piano melodies and tape-chewed ambience of the majestic title track, with detours via the angelic music-box miniature ‘Iceland’ and the glitch-scarred sustain-scapes of ‘Africa’, and concluding with the achingly melancholic ‘Lullaby’, In Between is a perfectly formed release that announces an understated new ambient craftsman.

Growing


June 2013

This 40 minute live improvisation in 3 sections was recorded in the Summer of 2013. As demonstrated on Kryshe’s mini-album  “In Between”, Grothe has a sublime understanding of space and tone. Growing is a delicate, hovering soundworld, pulsing with life yet never leaving a trace of its creator’s presence.

Dreamland


November 2012

In contrast to the free-flowing and layered compositions of Growing and In Between, this debut release from Kryshe presents a much more grounded and densely woven sonic tableau. This two-piece set showcases Grothe’s ability to bring his delicate and affecting songcraft to new and varied musical environs.

Biography

Kryshe is the live and studio-based ambient project of German musician Christian Grothe. Grothe’s musical explorations began by writing and recordings guitar-based songs at home, and over time his approach has become more experimental in nature. His current productions often evolve from live improvisation sessions, incorporating sound-manipulation software such as max/msp to develop a richly layered yet spacious sound. Grothe is also a member of the improvisational trio Unland, featuring ambient artist Jonas Meyer and clarinetist Shabnam Pavaresh.
