Profile:

Augst & Daemgen since 1998
With humor and willingness to experiment, not denouncing but not at all casual, Augst & Daemgen (formerly known as arbeit) convert playing a fine line through a historically ambivalent German language and music landscape.

You know all the patterns, but you have never heard them like this before. Distorted, blank, reduced and in each moment like created by irony, fear, humour and melancholy -- the ancient tradition of German songs ... Mahler's magic horn songs of 1892, Eisler's New German folksongs of 1949 and Augst, Daemgen and Korn's "revised" German folk songs of 2001- all three are attempts to free the ordinary and the collective from aesthetic restriction. One thing is sure: the latest attempt has hit the mark exactly.
