Cryptic Scenery

Profile:
cryptic scenery is the main music outlet of the German musician Christian H. Sötemann. It has existed in a group line-up from 1994 to 2003, and has been continued in the so-called "solo line-up" between 2003 and 2009, and from mid-2009 to mid-2012, the line-up consisted of Christian H. Sötemann and Thomas Pertzel. Since then, the solo line-up has been reactivated.

The music varies in style, but could roughly be characterized as oscillating between mostly dark(er), atmospheric Art-Rock/Pop, Ambient, formalist minimalism and Drone. cryptic scenery has released a number of CDs, CD-Rs, Tapes, Vinyl and digital releases since mid-1995.
