Wolfgang Voigt and J rg Burger have worked on many projects for the Kompakt label in the past -- both as a duo (on the series Burger/Ink and Burger/Voigt) and separately (with such entities as Mike Ink, Triola, Cologne Tape, and Kafkatrax). Now recording under the name Mohn, they have produced a truly strange and unsettling program of electronic music that could conceivably be called "goth ambient," except that "goth" implies a morbid self-seriousness that is nowhere in evidence here, and "ambient" implies a mood of restful contemplation that also has nothing to do with Mohn's agenda. The mood communicated here is more along the lines of understated dread -- by the end of the album you feel more disquieted than anything else. This is true of even the gentlest tracks. Notice, for example, the foreboding hiss that underlies the layers of soft gray sound on "Das Feld," and the subtly hair-raising operatic samples that give an edge of discomfort to the otherwise pleasant "Schwarzer Schwan." There are beats from time to time, but where they exist, such as on the gently plodding (and punningly titled) "Ambient t" and the dubby "Saturn," they're mostly pretty vestigial; they provide temporal structure but nothing that comes close to a groove. So what you've got here is basically an excellent soundtrack for reading novels by unhappy authors, or for staring out the window on a drizzly day. Call it "good bad-mood music."
