Embark on a sonic journey as we kick off our series with the mesmerizing sounds of Winkelschleifer. Operating from Vienna since 2014, Winkelschleifer is a manifestation of the fusion between a fascination with timbrally and rhythmically unique textures and a willingness to embrace improvisation. Maurizio Massaro, the mastermind behind Winkelschleifer, follows the trailblazing path set by experimentalists of various schools, drawing inspiration from the likes of Sonic Youth and Throbbing Gristle. His musical exploration is guided by intuition, with the key elements being guitar and homemade electronics. The result is an endeavor to create emotional resonance through sound.

In 2021, Winkelschleifer unveiled his latest sonic creation, the parasitic, dark, and sludgy album titled "Tiramigiù". This auditory experience features a re-enactment of straight noise rock riffs enveloped within meandering and brooding clouds of sound. Notably, there are no vocals in this sonic odyssey - Winkelschleifer communicates through more abstract means, allowing the music to speak volumes.

For enthusiasts of Post-Rock or those with a penchant for the more esoteric realms of music, such as fans of Wolf Eyes, Xiu Xiu, Ramleh, or Dean Blunt, Winkelschleifer's compositions promise a captivating journey into the uncharted territories of sound.

Join us as we unravel the sonic tapestry woven by Winkelschleifer, setting the stage for an exploration that transcends conventional musical boundaries.

Stay tuned for more sonic adventures in the Interstellar Pulse series!
