Zwei mikroskopische Köstlichkeiten

to kick off our new year in micro-sound proper: 2 tasty teutonic offerings from the late, great Ritornel, slow smoked to perfection and full to the brim with flavor; the one-two punch like dark beer with (vegan?)sausages on a cold winter night, which, to these ears, comprise some of the most sophisticated digital sound design ever commited to record.
