'Bogenschutzer' is electronic composer/musician Matt Archer.
"Simple City" is his second full length album, following the 2005 self-titled release "Bogenschutzer".
"Serene, abstract, pulsating even quirky are a few words that come to mind when describing the second recording from Melbourne composer Matt Archer aka. Bogenschutzer. From the opening track "The Arrival", a beautiful ambient work with a wonderful bassline, he never lets the music just roll along, there is always something happening, and on each subsequent listening you will constantly discover new sounds. For this reviewer I heard elements of rock music ("Freeway Design" and "Plucked") and a kind of electronic folk music ("Very Serious Men" and "Little Fruits") but I don't really want to single out any particular tracks as every track has something to offer. A work of great imagination. Highly recommended. " - Phil Richards (Readings Monthly, Australia)
For lovers of Boards of Canada, Tortoise & Susumu Yokota, Bogenschutzer seamlessly blends ambient & beat driven works for a cinematic musical journey.
The sounds are put together at DesTone studio, a collection of keyboards, piano, computers, percussive & toy instruments,in Melbourne, Australia.
