E-MUSIKGRUPPE LUX OHR‘s long-awaited studio album, entitled Kometenbahn, is a compilation of six original sonic pieces that mirror both hemispheres of the band. While E-MUSIKGRUPPE LUX OHR‘s quest for cosmic experiences is proudly inspired by German kosmische musik of the 1970s, the band also boldly pursues to probe frontiers that have remained unchallenged for four decades. Kometenbahn is a journey into organic atmospheres, warm analogue timbres, and melodic sequences that bring the sound of the pioneers into the 21st century.
