grau& release their debut single on 11th February 2018

The name grau& - grau und - (= grey and) articulates the never ending curiosity about the “inbetween” and the search for anti dualism. Music and noise, tonality and atonality, black and white, or you name it.

The unit met in Berlin in autumn 2017 to score film music for the experimental filmmaker Caroline Schwarz. Ariel William Orah and Maximilian Kupi already formed a psychedelic electronic duo under the name “Kupi&Orah” at that time and previously released three tracks together with Luftmenschen Klangwerk, a soundscape subsidiary of Berlin-based empathy entity Luftmenschen. Pia Achternkamp (loh) is a sound artist, working on sound installations, scoring music for performances and building self-made instruments. She is also involved in jazz projects as a drummer, guitarist, and contrabassist and regularly participates in artist residency programs all over Europe.

For the grau& project the three combine their personal interests ranging from various synthesis methods to acoustic-electric sound sculpturing with conventional popular song structure twist – or completely the opposite. The output may vary from 3 minutes synth pop songs to 30 minutes experimental song with multiple layers of reverb and distortions, influenced by late 60´s kosmische musik (read: krautrock), 80´s FM Synth Pop, alongside with 90´s trip hop - techno - shoegaze.

Their first single “Edamame” and bonus track “Kaugummi”(available exclusively via bandcamp and limited cassette) are the first attempt on delivering their “inbetween” concept. Edamame is a 4 minutes synth pop song, driven with distortion layers and modular synthesis touch. While Kaugummi is their first composition that they made during their very first “jam” for the film scoring project back in autumn 2017.

The band recorded, mixed and mastered everything by themselves.

They are currently doing various gigs in Germany and working on their album which is scheduled for release in early summer 2018.


The digital release will be available from 11.02.2018 on bandcamp. The release date for other platforms (Spotify, iTunes,...) might deviate. Physical release (c60 audio cassette) will be available for order in Luftmenschen Klangwerk bandcamp site from 11.02.2018 on.

Track Name: Edamame
Fools...out, things that are loud
That mistrusted, falling apart.

Fools..seems to be light, it's only if...its only out right..
Fools..taught me of love, it's only if, its only if..
Oh.

Kiss me up allright (she said) blind me me oversight (he said)
Undertow…
Under vow..

Fools me up allright she said, fool me all around.
Embrace the truth,
Embrace, the truth, and fall.

Fools..
Driving me full to undo! The undone!

So fool! So dumb!
Corrupted on my currency, screw Nationality!
