Synopsis

Album Description
This is a re-release of the first Monolake album, Hongkong, originally released in 1997 on Chain Reaction and out-of-print for quite some time. Quote from the liner notes: "In 1996, Gerhard Behles and I attended the International Computer Music Conference in Hong Kong. I took the chance to capture field recordings in and around Hong Kong and Guangzhou. The trip was very inspiring, and we believe that the music we created afterwards reflects the atmosphere and mood of this experience. For the compilation of our first vinyl releases to a CD album in 1997, we not only chose the title Hongkong, but also refined the original songs with material derived from the field recordings I made. We also added a previously-unreleased closing title that is based on a recording captured in a subway train of Hong Kong's public transport." This re-release has been newly mastered, adding new levels of depth to the original recordings. Monolake also decided to remove the track "Index" from the remastered version, as it simply did not fit in. Produced by Gerhard Behles and Robert Henke, 1995-1997. Ambient recordings captured in Hong Kong & Guangzhou, 1996. Synthesizer solo on Mass Transit Railway by Wieland Samolak. Mastering of the second edition by Rashad Becker, edits by Robert Henke. Total running time 59:30.
