There is something magical and inexplicable in creation, and Sand manifest absolutely these mysterious phenomena. Story-tellers, musicians, shamans, geniuses, Sand were known, at the end of the 60s, as P.O.T. (Part of Time). Then Sand - Ludwig Papenberg and his brother Ullrich Papenberg, and Johannes Vester, developed a more avant-gardist, proto-industrial, visionary experimental approach, a truly unique entity in the history of music.
Not dependant on a classical “Krautrock” style, Sand is nevertheless part of this movement of German cosmic/psychedelic bands, as well as being the originators of proto-industrial musics.
Still living in the mythical landscapes SAND not only created Golem who was a being
of the earth. Something else pulsated with a different energy of oscillation. The
invisible beings of the air performed their dances. The Golem was large, mighty and
of compact matter. He needed an external spirit to be navigated. Sylph creatures
moved with the clouds and the wind – from gentle breezes to violent storms, always
sensitive to the chimes of the motions. The sylphs are the children of the moonlight
as well as the elves with broken wings. The sylph ballet is riding upon ethereal
horses and its airy spirit comes true in dawn levitation.
