Beatnadel (Beat Needle) is a piercing sonic outburst of razor-edged beats and pilot vocal art. AGF aka Antye Greie is a rare combination of a composer/ producer and vocalist. This is digital songwriting with beat structures and penetrating sound sculptures to inspire the mind. The tracks have been constructed out of large self-designed sample banks, voice, bass, synthesized sounds and discerning effect treatments. The music is sequenced to a large extend and holds an aggressive undertone compared to her recent works. AGF has cut out original tracks with surprise narrative and breathtaking precision in editing and sculpturing the sound. Deconstructed poetry, aggressive beat patterns, tender song writing, drone parts, full frequency spectrum.




"I have the gut intuition that music, as this vast terrain of human activity and inheritance of our species, will provide us with clues to our future survival, and that is a responsibility worth pursuing" David Dunn, The Book of Music & Nature




"If I could send snow sculpture kisses, like miniature data in space- we would meet air light years away" AGF 2010




"He says, the one who is not afraid is anyway cheerful and does not need to sing" Janosch in "Kleiner Hase, Grosser Held"

restless


my restless heart

is holding still

if you will

you come close

and touch it

its just a muscle

you can train it

just like your biceps

pump it

pump it up
