Born in Nürnburg, Germany, Sogar’s Jürgen Heckel now lives and works in Paris. His music has become a signature blend of crystaline sound fragments, static, and simple transluscent melodies. Combining both the musical and non-musical, Sogar creates his sonic lifeforms with a combination of software, guitar, and found studio soundsources. Apikal.Blend is the 3rd release by Parisian-based Sogar. (his debut release, Basal, was on 12k in 2001 which was followed in 2002 by Stengel on the French label List). It is the perfect listen for winter days with its icy and fragile textures.
…Jürgen Heckel alias Sogar läßt es erst gar nicht so weit kkommen und beginnt gleich mit kristallklarem.
