Clausthome is a group of musicians and artists based in Riga who aims to analyse several new directions of the music subculture, while experimenting and participating in the field. Clausthome is mainly working with 'electronic space-dark ambient' and 'techno-noize' or 'drum&noize' that is based on 'tribal' style synthesis. They use radio (ether) structure, data gathered by radio telescopes and archives of universe research data servers. This information, processed through sound alteration programs is used as the starting point of and base for future materials, when in live performances through mixing and synthesizing they create sound environment. The name 'Clausthome' describes as an open experimentation phase, where these authentic audio samples are used without specific processing, and without making any references to the source they come from. It is a process of translation and transformation that leads towards awareness of that potential environment, which can be created using the gathered material. 'Claustrum' is the label, which refers to this final stage - when the musicians have formulated the material and created their original music. It is a sort of synthesis of this longer period of processing, when the musicians have formed and created all samples by themselves.
