Experimental trio Giraffe crystalize time on ‘Desert Haze’, their new LP on Marionette. Giraffe is the musical project of Sascha Demand (guitar), Juergen Hall (keys), and Charly Schoeppner (percussion). With only a couple of releases to date on the wonderful Meakusma imprint, little is known about Giraffe. After letting go of other artistic projects, the trio now focuses solely on Giraffe by continuously searching for and finding their own unique language.Sascha, Juergen and Charly have quite diverse musical backgrounds, though morphing into Giraffe they tower into one single composer. Their music is a critical statement, not in a political sense but rather an artistic one. The trio is mindful about what it means to create and how to position themselves as artists nowadays and in no way are concerned with the constant hassle of being en vogue and short-lived trends – affirming their rather rare and stoic artistic stance, an expression that has developed ever so naturally and refreshingly honest to witness.

On Desert Haze, they’ve created a vibrant and minimalistic tribal sound that feels inspired by the Saharan traditional music of the Tuareg, Jazz, and German psychedelic krautrock. Giraffe themselves list the radical music of the Viennese School (Schoenberg along with his pupils Berg and Webern) as well as the Köln School with its early electronic experiments as their main influence and inspiration. More precisely the composition process and the organization of musical material within space and time, where a conceptual and intellectual approach melds with an experimental yet expressive sound searching method.

Side A focuses on the trios studio work; it is built around tone color and pitch analysis of resonating prepared guitar sounds. Through a unique mixture of free improvisation and a serialism “rule set”, Giraffe develop instrumental layers and structures to form their tracks. Side B sees Giraffe playing more freely with a reduced setup – representative of what you may hear when listening to the trio live.

Desert Haze, along with its track-titles, showcases an almost mimetic approach to art. The haptic music grabs the listener not as a passive recipient but as an active resonant body to vibrate through. One can almost feel the Elements, pressure and heat forming a diamond, hypnotic overtones ringing through windy caves, shamanistic rhythms conjuring up mysterious and ancient landscapes – where the constant cycle of sedimentation and erosion reveals structures of fragile beauty – always gentle to the hand’s touch and the mind’s eye.
