"the purpose has been lost in my disguise"
Blank Manuskript is an ArtRock project from Salzburg lead by Dominik Wallner and Alfons Wohlmuth. Typical long songs ornamented with a high level of symphonic density and elaborate polyphonics as well as extended improvised sections lead their audience through an entire musical adventure. Their compositional approach seeks to combine all sorts of different styles and traditions needed to serve the initial concept of their works. Hence the arrangements are carefully structured with complex rhythmical patterns and establish a sound-scape that can hardly be found in music nowadays. The lyrical elements are picturesque with a worked out mystic touch and though at a first glance arcane they always affect current life. As the music always follows the narrated concept one might label it contemporary rock program music ... what else?!
