Exploring the sonic landscapes of Thomas Köner today, a German artist whose journey from early instrumental prowess to groundbreaking drone compositions in the ’90s reflects a unique fusion of nature’s sublime influence and inventive recording techniques. From Teimo’s suspended tones captured through unconventional methods to the sparse, elemental drone of Permafrost, Köner’s work serves as a reminder that music, at its core, is the art of shaping moving air.
