Drums and effect pedals are merging into an immersive sound machine with cinematic depth.
Multi-layered rhythms and abstract drum sounds
- sometimes they illuminate fragile spaces,
sometimes they cast thunderous shadows.
On stage, the organic sounds of drums and percussion are amplified by flashing effect devices to create multi-dimensional worlds. This cosmos creates impressive sound structures of atmospheric power and gloomy soundtrack charm.
„A sound-experience“... „award-worthy“ ... „fascinating“

With "Deep Space Transport" drummer Jonny König releases an album that encourages a lot of associations. Song title, soundscape and atmosphere remind of dystopian science fiction.
Like film scenes of a fragmented space odyssey, the ten instrumental tracks combine dramatic tension and deceptive calm. Sometimes heaps of vibrating tom sounds roll menacingly towards the listener ('Dancing Drones') - sometimes gentle cymbal overtones float lost through space ('Deep Space Overtones').
The drums on 'Deep Space Transport' are extended by a hodgepodge of sounds - on the one hand from various percussion instruments like small gamelan gongs, tongue drums or misappropriated kitchen utensils - on the other hand by radical miking and sound manipulation by effects. Every now and then synthetic basses and harmonic sounds expand the percussive structures.
