Penjaga Insaf is a duo made of Henry Emich (Herbst9 / Land:Fire) and I. Sauerbrey. Their sound is a fusion with dark ambience, field recordings, ritual acts, spiritual chants and weird atmospheres.

For several years Ingo Sauerbrey made extensive travels through Indonesia, always carrying recording equipment to collect sounds as an audio diary. During periodic return trips to Germany, he started to work on the recordings with electronic devices. Some sounds were edited, cut and transformed, while others were kept completely intact. To name a few sound sources only recordings from Water Puppet and Shadow Theatres, Gamelan and various welcoming and fighting dances like Kecak, Jegog and the Tarian Caci were used for this album. Some of those impressive performances were made of 60 to 90 men chanting and dancing while a bamboo orchestra used 4 meter long bamboo sticks playing bass drums on it. SAMA SADJA is waving together the sounds of living traditions, religions and languages with spherical ambient pads and electronically edited drones from the field recordings. This is an contemplative and intimate soundtrack from the deepest heart of South East Asia.

FYI, I'm half-Indonesian and this band's name, album and tracks are all in Indonesian languange. Penjaga Insaf literally means 'Remorseful Guard'. See the meaning of each track in the bracket next to it. [sk@ds]
