The work of Cologne-based Marcus Schmickler has over the years crossed the boundaries between classical and pop, improvisation and techno. He is active as a solo artist under his own name, as well as working under the Pluramon moniker with Julee Cruise, plus countless collaborations in the field of electronic improvisation. Altars of Science is Schmickler's first purely electronic release since 1998's prize-winning Sator Rotas. A fascinating tour de force of modern computer music composition. Intense in its outlook, yet polished in its execution, it is an essential addition to any serious collection of 21st century audio. This special dual sided DVD+ format disc contains two versions of the same piece; one side has a stereo mix playable on all CD playing devices while the other side features the mind-blowing multi channel mix, playable on DVD players set up to 5.1.
