Korhan Erel and Rahel Kraft (voice, electronics) met on October 14, 2016 at Club der polnischen Versager in Berlin. The amazing cello quartet Octopus was playing that night. They struck up a conversation while smoking outside the club, and decided to meet for a session when Rahel was back in Berlin. That session happened on December 14. Rahel and Korhan set their instruments up and started playing, experimenting, failing… basically having fun. Rahel had the idea then to contribute a part of this session to a compilation of works based on the human voice: Utterances. This compilation was put together by Richard Sanderson and released on his “Linear Obsessional” label, which releases “experimental, improvised, and other music that falls through the cracks”. It contains 112 tracks that are each exactly two minutes long, sorted in order of submission date. “Harscht?” is the 111th track. The compilation comes also with a PDF booklet containing information, drawings, images.
