Landschaft, formed in 2003 is Alan Walker, based in Nottingham, England and cyberspace.
And is a mood I've nurtured from the early 80s. My early drone work "Ghost Images of Forgotten Skyscrapers", which surfaced briefly in a 1985 event, "Fabricarta Illuminata" in the Nottingham Midland Group Gallery, then shelved for nearly 20 years was the spiritual start of Landschaft "Ghost Images..." was a nod in the direction of the 1983 early Zoviet France LP "Mohnomishe" and Industrial Records era Throbbing Gristle.
Landschaft was stired into being by a long out of print book, Chronicles of Lake Narocz (1939) by Polish author Mieczyslaw Lisiewicz, an elegaic autobiography/travelogue set in what is now the Republic of Belarus, which was then, greater Poland. The author finds himself wandering through renewing forests and shattered emplacements; then recent remnants of the WWI Battle of Lake Naroch (1916). I also have in my collections, a number of between-the-wars European photo-travelogues. I quote fragments of these in the graphic component of Landschaft tapping into forgotten borders and the lost memory of the landscape.

I received, in July 2006, an email from Mieczyslaw Lisiewicz' daughter and was touched by her respose to this website and my recognition of her father's work. I have now published in full the whole Chronicals of Lake Narocz book on this website - see History: Chronicals of Lake Narocz
