hyper-active & multi-talented american musician, cordell klier has delivered an impressive body of work in various genres (glitch, click'n'cut, dark ambient, dark industrial, noise, minimal ambient, the list is endless!...) for various international labels (ad noiseam, mystery sea, afe records, gears of sand, and his own doctsect imprint), his latest cd being the dark-ambient collaboration with nordvargr & drakh out on old europa cafe.
"phono 4" shows another side of his talent, here cordell offers a very minimal lowercase/microsound piece, fascinating work full of silence & field recordings... headphones highly recommended!!!

Vital Weekly 651
Cordell Klier has already had a bunch of releases on labels as Ad Noiseam, Mystery Sea, Afe Records, Gears Of Sand and his own Doctsect label. Its not easy to hear what is going on 'Phono 4'. This hoovers very much on the edge of near silence. Soft crackles, even more soft drone like sounds, some field recording. And all of this in the middle of the storm of silence. Turn up the volume really high or use the best headphones. Its great minimalist beauty, in the best microsound tradition. (Frans de Waard)
