(Artist Bandcamp) Stefan Fraunberger's Quellgeister#3 Bussd (Morphine Records) is recorded entirely on an abandoned church's organ in the village of Bussd, Romania, the album is the third installment of the series by Austrian artist and composer Stefan Fraunberger. His research on the influence of nature on culture touches on time, periphery, memory, and transience as evidenced in his Quellgeister research. The album is an archeological sonic research on the deteriorating Organ found in the Saxon church of Bussd / Transylvania.

“Quellgeister” (engl. ‘source-spirits’) is an alchemical musical research project into the unique sonic character of derelict pipe-organs in Transylvania’s abandoned fortress churches, left obsolete by the exodus to modernity that followed the fall of communism. In the long-term, Fraunberger’s project aims to document the various transformations that human-built ritual machines undergo once left devoid of human presence, as they are slowly “retaken by nature”.
