about

Simulacron, the new album released by the very young electro-elders of TaboTago is program music to the book by Daniel F. Galouye of the same name, and even more inspired by Rainer Werner Fassbinder's film "Welt am Draht - World on a Wire", which also goes back to the novel.

In the music of TaboTago, which is influenced by and pays tribute to the band Tangerine Dream, the distinction between original and copy, model and image, reality and imagination is impossible - a mirror image without an original.

The 'busybodies' Leander Reininghaus, Bernhard Wöstheinrich and Andreas von Garnier pack their 2020's equipment to go back to the 1970s and dream of an exciting future that seemed possible at the time - Buckminster Fuller was on board the spaceship Earth at the time - which is obviously different from the one that has come. This sounds in a title like 'Counterfeit World', the fake world. Possibilities and confusion about one's own point of view is the theme, dreamed technological achievements like the 'Cortical Current' and the time confusions they produce are recreated with sequencers. Key figure 'Cau No' disappears in a vortex of hypnotic overtones. The listen-hear experience exceeds the 'look-see-coupling' by far.
