Blank Manuskript

 

The Salzburg-based band Blank Manuskript seems to be a musical chamber of wonder – internationally successful with uncompromisingly bizarre rock music, the ensemble gained a unique reputation. Their music is characterized by its sophisticated symphonic arrangements as well as extensive psychedelic improvisations, thus rocking our everyday listening habits. Blank Manuskript creates music paired with mystical-vivid lyrics to transfer its audience into flamboyant musical spheres that have a unique effect on the listeners. Socio-critical escapism unites with creative excellence, creating contemporary programmatic rock music for insiders and seekers, far beyond the inhuman banality of the media-machine.

A Profound Path / 2013 (SOLD OUT)

This album is a limited edition of 222 pieces, each of them with unique artwork by the London-based designer Philip Reitsperger. The compositions deal with a journey from the underworld to heaven, loosely connected to Dante’s Divinia Comedia.
