Roman Fahls – Ataulf #techno

Roman Fahls returns with more Visigoth techno.

Ataulf (or Ata-Ulf) was Visigoth king 370-415, saying “At first I wanted to erase the Roman name and convert all Roman territory into a Gothic empire: I longed for Romania to become Gothia, and Athaulf to be what Caesar Augustus had been. But long experience has taught me that the ungoverned wildness of the Goths will never submit to laws, and that without law a state is not a state. Therefore I have more prudently chosen the different glory of reviving the Roman name with Gothic vigour, and I hope to be acknowledged by posterity as the initiator of a Roman restoration, since it is impossible for me to alter the character of this Empire.”

Roman Fahls’ Ataulf is a follow on from Alaric and he says “Ataulf was the brother in law of Alaric (the name of my tune from before, this tune has a similar intro.” Therefore you get some more ambient techno. Strung out over the best part of seven minutes, this takes time and space to unfold. Everything is suspended, lost in amber waiting to move on. Almost two minutes pass before the track takes a turn for the techno, with shuffling but insistent beats. The two strands intertwine to leave a dreamy techno space.
