TANGOLECTRÓN is the latest production by the musician, composer and sound puzzler Nils Imhorst. Traditional tango and electronic music merge on this album, which oscillates between melancholy and nonchalance. The 14 tracks, the majority his own compositions, are arranged affectionately. At the same time, he does without the widespread minimalism. Consciously, Imhorst relies on meticulous arrangements, which thoroughly savour the emotional world of the titles.
Electronic drumbeats and sounds meet the traditional tango facets, represented by acoustic instruments like bandoneón, violin, guitar, piano, double bass and canto. Imhorst invited his favourite musicians for this project to the studio. Thus, Henrik Albrecht (award for audiobook in 2007) can be heard playing the bandoneón. The Spanish singer Minerva Díaz Pérez, at the moment touring Europe successfully with her band N.O.A.H., sings three titles. Apart from them the CD is instrumental. TANGOLECTRÓN is an album, which invites to dancing or to listening, depending on the mood. Or to both at the same time.Electrotango - Tangolectron
