This special event will be hosted by Boiler Room’s Gabriel Szatan and will cover the whole of the GAS spectrum. After Gabriel has dissected the albums with Wolfgang, the audience will listen to selected tracks from across the GAS catalogue on Brilliant Corners’ world class audiophile sound system. The listening sessions will then be followed by a Q&A allowing guests to ask questions of their own.
GAS is perhaps the most revered of Wolfgang Voigt’s many projects, with each album consisting of several long tracks of dense, hypnotic, hissing, atmospheric sound joining the dots between ambient and techno.
Beginning in 1996 with a self-titled record and moving through 1997’s Zauberberg, 1998’s Königsforst, 1999’s Oktember 12″, the project wound up with 2000’s seminal Pop – recently called the 11th best ambient album of all time by Pitchfork, and the 6th best album of the 2000s by Resident Advisor.
