Founded in 2001 by Sebastian Ziegler and Tobias Engler as an instrumental project, gordon’s tsunami week tries to unify soulful melodies and brute walls of sound.
Influenced by bands like mono, explosions in the sky, envy, mogwai, 65daysofstatic, sigur rós, russian circles, deftones, dredg and aereogramme, we’re trying to catch atmosphere and express it experimentally.
Different instruments (among others: violin, lap steel guitar and spherical samples) are assisting to set courses and to achieve a dreamy, gloomily character.
Additional members of gordon’s tsunami week are: Jörg Schmaus(drums), Christian Bachmann(violin), Nepomuk Zettl(guitar), Florian Popp(bass).
In the withering year of 2006 our first EP called "a place for nowhere" was recorded, produced by Mario Dahmen (liquid aether). The second EP "dropped by branches" was recorded in summer 2007.
During the two successional years gordon’s tsunami supported bands like stellardrive (Fra), ef (Swe), Amen Ra (Bel), Our Ceasing Voice (Aut), suma (Swe), Blackwaves (D), I Not Dance (A), Geisha (UK), Talbot (Est), caspian (US), the drift (US), mom (US), this will destroy you (US), Steve van Till / Harvestman (US), orbe (IT), off minor (US) and les lutins patates de l´espace (Fra).
