Versuchsanordnung / Press

“New article about how Versuchsanordnung manages to get improvisations sound like a song on: http://www.collectivesoundwaves.com/laboratorium”

“Your music sounds like a Malevich painting.”

“Your music is a numinous experience. Instruments are talkin' here. You're telling stories with your music. Very impressive. Nice job.”

“This is some of the best music on myspace!”

“B Vector könnte ich tagelang hören.”

“Danke liebe Versuchsanordnung - ihr habt uns unseren Nachmittag verzaubert!”

“VERSUCHSANORDNUNG (GERMANY) Haunting. Cinematic. Evocative. Versuchsanordnung is more of a collective rather than a band. Forming in 2006, the group has evaded categorization with their particular brand of atmospheric improvisations. Their name itself means experimental arrangement in German and they definitely live up to their name. They have a list of goals that read like a mission statement, including ‘to create sound impressions full of atmosphere aiming to paint pictures in your head.’ Goal archieved. Whether it is a film score or a freeform song, this group lives in a land where no soundscape is ever played the same way twice. Well worth hunting down.”

"Die Band um den Kölner Grafiker & Musiker Christian Barthold geht nicht den geraden Weg. Hier hört man jazziges, Progressiv-Elemente, Post-Rock-Tristesse und immer wieder ganz unerwartete Sounds, die dann, wie in PONYHOF, zu einem Moll-Surf-Instrumental führen, das sehr an die wunderbaren Atomic Swing erinnert. Gemeinsam mit Jörg Düpjohann (dr.), Markus Blatzheim (bs) und dem Pianisten Christoph Uhlhaas ist ein sehr eigenwilliges Album gelungen, das neben der Musik auch für sein Verpackungsdesign die absolute Höchstwertung bekommt."

“Thanks to your intensive listening, Versuchsanordnung continues to be the most listend to Jazz-Project / Germany on REVERBNATION.”
