Artist Details: Troum

TROUM is a duo located in Bremen, Germany, established in early 1997. The two members “GlitH” and “Baraka[H]” were active before in the influental ambient industrial group MAEROR TRI (which existed from 1988 to 1996). TROUM is the old german word for “DREAM”. The dream seen as a central manifestation of the unconscious symbolizes the aim of TROUM to lead the listener into a hypnotizing dream-state of mind, a pre-verbal and primal consciousness sphere. TROUM uses music as the direct path to the Unconscious, pointing to the archaic “essence” of the humans inner psyche. TROUM tries to create music that works like a direct transformation of unconscious matter.

TROUM’s creations are influenced by post-industrial, minimal and drone-music. Both members use guitar, bass, voice, accordion, balalaika, flute, mouth-organ, melodica, gong, field recordings, pre-recorded-tapes and a diversity of sound-objects to build a kind of multi-layered and highly atmospheric dreaming-muzak. Their sound could be described as “dark atmospheric ambient industrial”, “transcendental noise” or just “Tiefenmusik”. TROUM doesn’t work with synths, samplers or computer-soundsources, the sounds are created “by hand” to reach a broader sensibility. TROUM uses a spiral as their logo, expressing the trance-inducing potential of the music and the wish to reach inner, deeper spheres of the mind with it. Music as a door to unknown & alien dimensions. Music as an expression of the mystery of existence itself.

Live appearances: TROUM played several times at various venues and did small tours in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Poland, Russia, England/Ireland, and USA, and played or toured with SPEAR, TARKATAK, VANCE ORCHESTRA, ULTRASOUND, BAD SECTOR and others.
