klangstabil, who have been fascinated since childhood by this mysterious and ominous tale, playfully combined various musical elements on an electronic and acoustical level to achieve an innovative representation of krabat's story. 'kantorka', the singing girl, is the personification of love and represented a new feature in the works of the unique german project when this album was initially released on vinyl in 2001.
'kantorka's music is a mesh between mostly acoustic-sounding spacey electronica and small glitchy elements flowing at an energetic pace set by percussion drops. melancholic, quiet, expressive, and hauntingly beautiful. the complex monotony of the six tracks is carrying clear and unexpected structures, creating a balancing act between melancholic harmonies and the energetic expressiveness klangstabil are well-known to experienced listeners of their works.
