"Raumwerk" (Release date November 2nd 2012) is the fourth album by ART OFINFINITY. The two Thorstens colaborate with contributors to their previous albums but have added some new guests again. They created a new concept, this time with German lyrics. So "Raumwerk" sounds different, new and more authentic. At once Raumwerk is influenced by typical ingredients from Ambient, Art rock and Pop.
ART OF INFINITY “Raumwerk” (Press text)
A flying carpet – and you are allowed to join its ride. It carries you through “Space and Time” (“Raum und Zeit”) to distant galaxies. You feel the vastness of space and the depth of sound and you also feel the music.
With their fourth album “Raumwerk” ambient musicians ART OF INFINITY once again welcome you to a fantastic musical journey. They ask about the destination of your dreams and why “The Time” (“Die Zeit”) fades away. They move on and take you with them. Slowly you pass through “The Gate” (“Das Tor”) and enter the glittering “Glasufo” (“UFO made of glass”). You fly to the “Second World” (“Zur zweiten Welt”), melodies become blurred, rhythmic loops emerge from atmospheres.
Then you hear the sounds of a huge grand piano, you awake in the “Dream Room” (“Traumraum”) and continue the journey on rails. “Tunnel Lights” (“Tunnellichter”) come and go like one thousands thoughts. On your trip you encounter an “Electric Man” (“Elektrischer Mann”) and you end up in a movie, that is set in a galactic “Arena”. Through gloomy light you glide into the “Hall of Stars” (“Sternenhalle”). It is the end but also the starting point of the trip. The sweet sound of the guitar vanishes, the journey seems to be over. But only some minutes later the CD stops, you hear the hiss, and in your mind you still feel the sound of the music – on and on. (BSC Music/Prudence)

ART OF INFINITY “Endless Future” (Press text)
Four years after the release of their international breakthrough album „Dimension Universe“ the unique Frankfurt/Cologne music project Art Of Infinity push their magnificent Space Pop on to a new artistic level.
The two masterminds of Art Of Infinity, Thorsten Sudler-Mainz and Thorsten Rentsch, have given their complex and highly atmospheric compositions a stronger focus on classical song structures (“The Flow Of Time”, “Endless Future”). By inviting an illustrious cast of guest artists and a 60-head all-male choir they have added some remarkable new facets to the astonishing wealth of their music.
Thus the fans of Art Of Infinity are once again treated with the sensual Worldmusic chants by Eva Wolf, but for the first time also with the voice of Mexican composer Alquimia, who gives the title track “Endless Future” a refreshing exotic touch.
Lyrically the album once again deals with ancient topics and archaic dreams of mankind, cosmic journeys into the future and to magical mystic places. So the combination of electronics, progressive elements, Classical Music and Rock, which is Art Of Infinity’s unmistakable trademark, once again integrates beauty of sound and deep thinking to a fascinating and deeply rewarding experience.

ART OF INFINITY “Dimension Universe” (Press text)
Four years after their first album “New Horizon”, Art Of Infinity comes out with “their endless journey into space” - a concept album “Dimension Universe”.
Thorsten Sudler-Mainz and Thorsten Rentsch this time decided to create things in big, so they invited plenty of excellent musicians that can flaunt with their long acitvity and collaboration references that ranges from Deep Purple to Alan Parsons Project. The two Thorstens colaborate with most of the contributors to their first album but have added guitarist Klaus ‘Major’ Heuser (Bap), even a real drummer (Sibi Siebert, Twelve Drummers Drumming) for the first time, ex-Chandeen-vocalist Antje Schulz and percussionist Mario Argandona (Vocaleros).
The album opens with the short preface piece “All Galaxies Sun”, which sets the tone, accenting instrumentation this time being the dobro and acoustic guitar. “Cosmic Rain” is a more up-beat number (very drum ’n bass) with Antje Schulz providing the main vocals. Rick Wright’s influence is all over “Supernova” but the addition of live drums and an expert guitarist make their mark. The piano and acoustic guitar during the intro of the 14 minutes “Drift Upon The Sky” are crisp and pure in tone, the choir provides an almost Russian flavour, Stefan Höllering’s sax is incisive and the spoken vocals fit the mood of the piece. The final track “Trimelar Starflight” is resplendent with atmospherics throughout the slow build-up but finishes on a high with more acoustic guitar and chant-like female vocals. (BSC Music/Prudence)
