Following the successful launch shows at Mona Foma Festival we’ve also had some initial reactions:

“All-acoustic spacious blend of contemporary chamber music, experimental sounds and alternative pop song” – The Mercury (AUS)
“Hinterlandt represents a distinctive, interesting and, I think, important stylistic excursion. Jochen Gutsch’s talent and vision as a multi-instrumentalist and composer has shaped an original project” – CutCommon (AUS)
“The lyricism is personal and witty, the composition is unparalleled, it’s just a fantastic little record.” MyIndieAustralia (AUS)
“A creative approach that is generally considered ‘high-art’, mixed with the qualities and characteristics of progressive/avant-garde music. Strings, brass and acoustic guitars, performing music that is romantic, rocky, creepy, percussive and sometimes mentally conflicting!” – 2SER Bandnextdoor (AUS)
“Gorgeous arrangements sprawling across seven tracks. Chamber music for indie lovers” – Cheap Slices (US)
“…an experiment to test the boundaries of what this format can offer … Overall, it’s a very interesting and diverse release from the Australian sextet.” – Canthisevenbecalledmusic (US)

The Mona Foma set was recorded by ABC Classic FM – an interview and some parts of the recording can be heard here. Another interview with Jochen about the composition can be read here.
