Grassow, Mathias

Mathias became increasingly fascinated with the flexibility and possibility inherent in keyboards and electronics and created experimental electronic music between traditional German and "New Age" styles.

Since the late 80's he has specialized in synthesizer drones and myriad forms of overtone music and explored their effect on the human psyche (similar to the old Indian Nada yoga) by using his voice, tambouras, zithers, flutes, guitars, singing bowls, and some home-built instruments.

Alio Die + Mathias Grassow - Praha Meditations

Artist:  Alio Die + Mathias Grassow
P: 2010
After the concert in Prague last year in may, we followed the proposal of friends to play some acoustic instruments spontaneously on top of the hill, in Troja, into a circle of stones installations.
Zithers, Tubes, Bells, Rattle and Shells, Flutes..the sessions were inspired from the special place and the spring's vibes in the wind. The recordings that are a blueprint of the spirit of that day, were edited in studio by Alio Die, then Mathias Grassow added his electronic drones to expand the point of view and enrich the flow and layers of the compositions. The result in eight tracks, show how mostly static and repetitive balanced sounds can interact with our perception during the listening time, bringing us into an active and intimate quiet mood, softly absorbing us into some dreams-like and time-opening experience.
Hic Sunt Leones nov.2010
"My first time in prague in 2007 was an outstanding event and I was impressed by the magic and history of this town.
Two years later I was invited again as a part of the project "Music & Virtues", which lives on like the magic of prague and the efforts of spiritual healing of the earth from here and many other places on earth.
I ever believed in music as a tool to heal this living organism and what's better than the universal speech of sound and music to be a part of this project ?
Beside the concert in the Church of St. Simon and Juda,Old Town we followed the proposal to play some acoustic instruments spontaneously on top of the hill... These recordings are a blueprint of the spirit there and so we decided to work on it and this is the result.."

Karma Cosmic + Darshini - Sat Chid Ananda

Artist: Karma Cosmic + Darshini
P: 2007

The exceptional singer Darshini, who earned a lot of attention with her mantra cd „Prema Bhava“, joined up with cosmic india trio Karmacosmic for a production well worthy to listen to.
After Karmacosmic debut „Music for Tantra & Meditation“, the three renowned musicians remained true to their distinctive style, a fancy composition of ethno- world- music and ambient & chill- out, but enriched their work with Darshinis sophisticated mantra-singings, who – being a trained yoga teacher – genuine lives spirituality.
Darshini, whose chanting emanates passion and magic affiliates her musical work with yoga techniques and meditation so that once being in this special state of consciousness, she can show herself to her chanting with all abandonment.
At last it shoudn`t be kept quiet that Karmacosmic incorporator Gleisberg, established since 15 years with symphonically coined compositions on numerous cd publishments, met Darshini in a yoga- ayurveda– ashram where the idea of a collaboration was born.

Mathias Grassow + Bruno Sanfilippo - Cromo

Artist: Mathias Grassow + Bruno Sanfilippo
P: 2010
Delicate Steinway Old Lady Grand Piano impressions and subtle, air-filled drones. Mathias Grassow lays down a series of gossamer drone textures reminiscent of distant fogs - hazy, grey beds of transparent tone with shifting densities that seep into the consciousness softening the atmosphere, drenching the soundscape. These electronic formations at times recede and hang in the background allowing Bruno Sanfilippo's piano work to dominate, but in other places they well up and fill the senses becoming dense, intense, engrossing. The piano parts are achingly beautiful and melodic on some tracks - sparse, unhurried developments that seem to pour straight from the heart of the player.
There are also darker passages of finger runs looming from the relative stillness of the synths. Sometimes the ivories sink deep within the mists, reverberating gently, becoming a part of the air or are so heavily effected as to merge with the backdrop.

Mathias Grassow + Thomas Weiss - Conscience

Artist: Mathias Grassow + Thomas Weiss
P: 2006
Conscience, their first collaboration, is about as close to perfect ambient minimalism as it gets. This disc starts with a low drone that envelops listeners with its overtone qualities and subtle pitch changes. Mathias and Thomas build layers of atmospheres upon and from this drone. The atmospheres are gentle, cerebral and serene and they control the pace - slow, so slow as to approach standing still.
That is the unique characteristic of this set. The music evolves slowly and deliberately. It seems to hang forever in listeners neuropathways as it triggers serotonin and neuroprenephrin activity. On the surface, the overtones have no substance or purpose. As they enter the biosonic feedback device (read: brain), they define themselves anew and allow listeners to float at will.
For such a low-key soundscape, this CD evokes and promotes lots of activity -all of intangible and unquantifiable. While it might be impossible to dance to this music, it is just as impossible to prevent one's insides from dancing to it. The music infects the mind, the heart, the spirit and the soul with its positive energy.
With this release, Thomas leaps to the forefront of the ambient community. Association with a master qualifies as a major endorsement. Mathias, with more than 100 releases in his discography, qualifies as a master. This CD is as good an introduction as any for his music. It comes with the highest recommendation.

Mathias Grassow + Tomas Weiss - Aestrata

Artist: Mathias Grassow + Tomas Weiss
P: 2010
Tomas Weiss and Mathis Grassow are known individually and as collaborators for their warm, beatless, often green ambient combining state-of-the-art electronics with instruments of non-Western origin. Here, they have crafted a dark ambient album in the best sense of the term, insofar as it creates and upholds a feeling of uncertainty and of being somewhere you could otherwise never visit. No chance of anything green growing here because there is no "here" here. No foothold. Instead of drifting, "Aestrata" hurtles. A rush of cold wind never relents, but riding the chinook is a deceptively-shifting kaleidoscope of monochromatic drones. There are many shades in the grey scale...
Recommended for headphone listening while travelling through some wormhold between galaxies.( Stephen Fuitman )

Mathias Grassow + Tomas Weiss - Electric Angels

Artist: Mathias Grassow + Tomas Weiss
P: 2010
Grassow & Weiss join up for another spacious adventure, showcasing an hour of  high quality Ambient with an amazing array of subtle and intricate detail.Although the music evolves slowly and deliberately, it's probably one of  their most varied albums up to date. Ranging from dynamic and engaging dronescapes to razor-sharp produced textures, flavored with a touch of early Space Music.
Electric angels is a fusion of heart and mind. Leaving the industrial age of the 19th century and the information age of the 20th century behind, the 21st century opens the door to the age of consciousness. Electric angels is a musical representation of this passage from the old era into a new one. Limited CD in special two panel digi file.

Mathias Grassow + Tomas Weiss - Quiet Calling III

Artist: Mathias Grassow + Tomas Weiss
P: 2011
Quiet calling 3, released in an Eco Digipak, is the final chapter of this trilogy. Rising and falling tonal layers fuse into a continuum that seems to lift the listener out of perceptual linearity, expanding space into a perpetual metamorphosis of form. Within its minimalist structure, Chapter 3 weaves intricate complexities that create a weightless veil of vibrating resonance. An amplified silence allows for intimate reflection, evoking both deep peace and a heightened awareness. In the end, the listener returns to the source from which these sounds were born - silence.

Quiet Calling IV - a mindbending continuation of this series. Deeper than ever before, the album features slow hypnotic movements with harmonic, morphing structures with a great sensation of space.

Mathias Grassow - 3rd Dimension

Artist: Mathias Grassow  
P: 2011
LTD 100

Mathias Grassow delivers on "3rd Dimension" his distinctive beatless drones, highly immersing and expansive minimal soundscapes for inner journey. "Dimension I" is perfect example while the next piece, over 20 minutes long, "Dimension II", is even more static infused movement, although quietly evolving and becoming at few moments more massive, but then again returning back to more minimal warmer and evocative drifting path. Wonderful track! Drones on "Dimension III" are spiced by Mathias' voice magics and occasional tribal beats, but sounding quite futuristic with various metallic sounds, bells and other environmental sounds. But still really cold and dark, another highly delicate and magnificent soundwalls, this is a pure blissful sonic excitement! "3rd Dimension" is truly hypnotic and tranquil dronescape by this German Maestro, a brilliant collector's item!

Mathias Grassow - Alchemystery (2CD)

Artist: Mathias Grassow  
P: 2012

Alchemystery is the first title in a suite dedicated to musical divinations seeking knowledge about the mystery of our origin and what binds our world together. Mathias explores music and its vibrations, both external and internal, as he treads an improvised path into the colourful and enigmatic realms of aural arcanum. Recent scientific theory and particle experiments are now challenging long accepted truths about our perception of the very world we inhabit. As mankind gazes further into space and our past the questions become more urgent and challenging. What is our origin and what is the nature of the universe, the very fabric holding life, matter and time together? Among academic disciplines and dogmatic faiths, our tertöns are striving to find the lost treasures, and among them Mathias has chosen the path of music as an insight into our cosmos. The Aural Alchemy sessions are dedicated to this very purpose. Comes in jewelcase with 16-page booklet.
