(CMP 29) Testphasen negativ - The Final Hours (2013)

In the words of Mr. Rabendorn:
 "I'm currently signing the (very) limited edition of the new Testphasen negativ album.
 I'm so happy with the quality of the covers (the best of all we did at CMP) and the whole release.
 This music on this album is definitely not for everyone and nothing for school-kids.
 It's about a journey to death, if you will.
 To me it is the most emotional TN album so far. Somehow quiet, solemn and serious.
 The music itself is still experimental-organic-progressive-dark-ambient
 I hope some of you may appreciate it.

 I am really happy with it and especially proud, cause it made a long way round (2008-2013) and my good friend passed away in the meantime. To him this work is dedicated and he left some marks, too, on this album, before he died.

 Release date is 24th October 2013, exactly one year after he passed away.
 I love u, brother......RR"

Produced and mixed by Mr. Rabendorn, as one piece, without gaps.

(CMP 28) Black Hole Raven - First Flames (E.P.) (2013)
DIGITAL RELEASE ONLY
soon on all platforms like
"iTunes"   "Amazon"  "Spotify"  etc

This is the debut E.P. of Holywood's new Rock'n'Roll hope and glory "Black Hole Raven".
These 3 guys show us that true Rock'n''Roll is NOT dead. The music itself is mixture of 70's Rock, Classic Rock, Dirty Blues and Underground Rock.
It hits you in your cojones (if you're a guy)
But it is not just fun stuff. Songs like "down the drain" also show the political side, which is often present. And there is more to come.
The most obvious face of this band seems to be some kind of sick sarcasm, but also honest words of wisdom and luv!
...howauchever...it's unfuckingfassbar great music

Produced, mastered and photographed by Ralf Rabendorn

2012


(CMP 26) Ralf Rabendorn - Exile (2012)
Finally the full 4th length album "Exile" by Mr. Ralf Rabendorn that comes out just one day before the official End of the World!
This album has more different (experimental) rock elements than earlier solo albums, though it is not a typical rock album, of course.
Still MedusaDa, still a mix of different styles like: noisy post rock, avantgarde, avant--prog-rock, dark ambient, krautrock elements and experimental music in general.

Mr. Rabendorn recorded the majority of songs already in 2008. He almost didn't release this jewel,
that also features a 5 songs with words written by Mr. Gregory James Wyrick (*).
Everything else was written and performed by Rabendorn himself on instruments like electr. guitars, bass, acoustic drums, piano etc..no computer stuff!

"Exile" is a concept album. It's about you, about me. You may not understand every word of the German and English lyrics but you may enjoy it,especially if you kept yourself some of your childish imagination.

This release is a triple label collaboration release of Against it Records & ContraMusikProduktion & Global Hideout. The latter  is officially offering the digital version, too and you can also buy the CD through their store.

Photography (one pic by Iri Li though), artwork/cover design and production & mastering by Ralf Rabendorn

2010/2011



(CMP 25) Lunalilith - Walls vs. Love (2010)
Second Lunalilith album since 1999. This album is filled with very melodic and sometimes melancholic tunes, mostly sung by Irina  on lead vocals, while she also added a few additional synths sounds and occasional "noises". Ralli  also contributed a few vocals here and there and he performed all instruments like electric guitars, piano, acoustic drums, bass. synths etc.

Irina's fragile and sugar-sweet voice is definitely a trademark of this record, together with the fine instrumentation and melodic compositions. 
 
For friends of: Indie, Post Rock, 70's Rock, Ambient Rock......
 
It took a long time, till our new album here has been released and financed, that comes as a pro version with pro 6 panel digipak and it looks really gorgeous!
This is our most expensive and most comprehensive release to date!
 
Tracklist:
Never-Ending Story | Out of Time and Space | Sad Cliché | Viel zu weit | Little Fool | The Devil’s Got a Hold on Me | Insel | Nothing but Lies | Für immer Licht (Insel 2) |

2009


(CMP 24) Testphasen negativ - Hostia (2009)
"Testphasen negativ, Ralf Rabendorn's experimental dark project, brings you an album filled with dark ambient sounds. This time the sound on the album is probably more consequent (dark) ambient than on previous albums, which means: Less experimental (for TN standards).
Many choir sounds have been used (real voices, no midi stuff in general), mixed with TN's very own atmospheric sounds. The classic song "fading" (an older version was free available) has also made it on this album, in a slightly different and re-mastered version though.
A few, rather melodic ambient songs (Spark, Before the Afterlife) lift the dark mood of this unique album. (OT/ CMP-Crew)"
For friends of: MEDUSADA, Dark Ambient, Atmosfear, Choral, Ritual, Experimental Ambient, Spiritual (kind of), Dark Drones, etc
Artwork, photography and production by Ralf Rabendorn.

Tracklist & Samples:
always & forever | selbstverstümmelung | cigarettes & thoughts | fading | feels like the end of the world | gegenschmerz | spark | prayer (free MP3) | strength | before the afterlife

(CMP 23) Rita Galetti - Falter (2009)
Canadian female sound artist & guitarist "Rita Galetti" has recorded 9 wonderful experimental tracks (around 50 minutes of playing time), who offer great variety and depth.
You can hear drones, sound sculptures, experimental guitar sounds, field recordings, electro acoustic, noise, ambient and so much more. This album doesn't only offer experimental music. Rita also knows how to create fine melodies and great moods.
It's none of the albums, who drift away much too often into emotionless musical experiments.  
The songs and sounds have been recorded with great effort on 4-track tape (!), so don't expect sterile sounding computer music. No doubt, "Falter" is an excellent debut album!(RR)

Strictly limited collectors edition, prof. 3x foldable (6 panel) cover (digisleeve like), prof. printed in b&w on both sides, prof. thermo printed CD, pvc protection sleeve.

Artwork & photography by Ralf Rabendorn.

(CMP 22)  The Infrared Experience - White (2009)
Pure instrumental guitar project with two "faces". A few songs are really melodic, beautiful. Some kind of ambient post-rock. On the other side there are these disturbing sound textures in some songs.
For friends of ambient guitar/(ambient) post rock/ MEDUSADA/ experimental guitar/ ambient etc..Friends of early Kranky stuff, Flying Saucer Attack, Roy Montgomery,Windy&Carl, etc. could also like this album.
It's important to mention that No Computer, No Samples and No Synths were used. Just one guitar and a few effect pedals.

(CMP 21)  "Testphasen negativ - Burn, Giant, Burn!" (2009)
The follow up album to the appreciated debut "How I won the War" is out now.
It's hard to describe this concept album.
Maybe experimental psychedelic ritual dark ambient noise music? MEDUSADA?
I guess the best description is "Testphasen negativ".
Featuring Kenji Siratori on "Anti-Vital" and the "Choir of the Last Flame" on various tracks.(OT)

This exclusive limited collectors edition comes in a prof. 3x foldable (6 panel) oversized 13x18cm cover, prof. printed on both sides on special linen cardboard paper (b&w print) in a reclosable protection bag, diamond dye of course. Only available through us. Artwork by R. Rabendorn (OT)

2008


(CMP 20) "Iri Li - Broken Summer" (2008)
The queen of the MEDUSADA movement/genre and the driving force of the Infinitus Ensemble
has released her first solo album. Almost pure instrumental. You can hear acoustic violins, singing bowls, synths, piano, bells, gong, special field recordings (all recorded by herself) and sound manipulations, ambient soundscapes and much more.
Without a doubt one of  THE CMP highlights so far.
Therefore it comes in a great looking prof. Digipack!
For friends and fans of: MEDUSADA/ Conrète/ Avantgarde/ Electro- Acoustic/
(Dark) Ambient/ Surrealism/ Field Rec./ Drone/ Soundscapes/ Ritual/ DaDa etc
