TAU 5 is Moritz Baumgärtner on drums and percussion, Philipp Gropper on saxophone, Philip Zoubek on electronics, Petter Eldh on bass - and Ludwig Wandinger as the producer and editor. For the editing work is indeed an integral, almost compositional part of their debut album that is carrying the all-embracing title "Kreise (Circles)". Over a period of three years, the material has drawn large circles at the various stages of the production process. From composition and concept to the final mixdown. What we hear is: Played notations, free jams and renewed improvisations on already edited sessions on this truely circular double longplayer. For TAU 5, the end of a process is always the beginning of a new process. Everything is morphing into everything else, just like in the artwork of Berlin artist Markus S. Fiedler. No one can say with certainty whether his pictorial worlds in all their colorful splendor are completely computer generated, or whether it is just a tableau on which photographic elements are further processed on the computer.
