> History:


AVALON tontraeger was founded in spring 2001. it should be a forum for abstract noise art, harsh electronics and experimental techno. our releases was handmade and made with love. because of the limited releases we prefered CD-R. the artwork was a part of our concept and all releases should be designed in cooperation with our artists.

the first album on AVALON tontraeger was 'Nordwind's - Distortion Lounge. released on 21st of Sept. 2001. in January 2002 we released our first label compilation 'Sturmlicht Vol. 1' and are called as 'hopeful label' (Orkus Music-Magazine).

in April 2002 we found our sublabel Weltfunk Musik. it's the base for dark ambient music and harsh industrial-noise. the debut release was the album 'Bollock nort' from label founder Thorsten Knipp.

because of five years AVALON tontraeger we have made our own gift with the 4-Disc Platinum Edition of the 'Sturmlicht IV'-Compilation in September 2006. the Compilation contains 60 tracks. disc 4 was full of exclusive tracks. it was a strictly limited release of 55 copies!

in October 2006 we change the status of our labelfamily and found the KLANGKUNST group which contains AVALON tontraeger, Weltfunk Musik and Klangkunst Retro, the sublabel for all our rereleases.
