Ibliss - Supernova (1972)


Zespól Ibliss założony został w 1971 roku w Niemczech. Skład tworzyli m.in. Andreas Hohmann znany z pierwszej płyty Kraftwerk oraz Basil Hammoudi grający w poprzedzającej Kraftwerk grupie Organisation. Ibliss nagrał tylko jedną płytę w 1972 roku, utrzymaną w atmosferze psychodelicznego jazz-rocka z etnicznymi elementami i silną rytmiką.



With a line-up that included Basil Hammoudi (an Organisation alumni) and Andreas Hohmann (who played in the first Kraftwerk album), Ibliss is closely associated to one of the most important cornerstones of krautrock. Overall, the band's style is heavily based on jams impregnated with the flavors of jazz-rock and fusion,: the psychedelic sounds serving more as adornments than as an essential element. The line-up is completed with saxophonist Rainer Buchel, guitarist Wolfgang and bassist Norbert Buelmeyer. The band's repertoire gives predominant room to percussive inputs, while the guitar and sax solos are more focused on completing the momentums or stating laid-back nuances. The band's tribal and fusion aspects are undeniably linked to Organisation, but the most obvious family resemblances in style are connected to Embryo, Xhol and Annexus Quam (first album): there is more jazz than rock in Ibliss. The band was short-lived, with the "Supernova" album (sound engineer: Conny Plank) being barely noticed by music critics and audiences. (progarchives)
