The Salzburg-based band Blank Manuskript seems to be a musical chamber of wonder – internationally successful with uncompromisingly bizarre rock music, the ensemble gained a unique reputation. Their music is characterized by its sophisticated symphonic arrangements as well as extensive psychedelic improvisations, thus rocking our everyday listening habits. Blank Manuskript creates music paired with mystical-vivid lyrics to transfer its audience into flamboyant musical spheres that have a unique effect on the listeners. Socio-critical escapism unites with creative excellence, creating contemporary programmatic rock music for insiders and seekers, far beyond the inhuman banality of the media-machine.
Internet has changed the whole music business to an extreme degree in the course of the last 10 years. It is getting more difficult to generate sales due to the fact that the actual listening culture has decreased. On the one hand, it is easier to spread music around the world while on the other hand, we are surrounded by a constant surplus on every possible channel. We try to see the positive sides of this development, because as a niche product, nothing is more important than to reach the right audience for our music. Any music-listener, who actually pays attention to what he hears, will enjoy our music. Blank Manuskript is usually not something to listen on the side - it requires attention and what you will experience then is your reward!
The most rewarding moments in being a musician today is to perform in front of an attentive audience, who gets "into" the music. All our albums are concept albums and nothing makes us happier than to see people making their own movie in their mind while listening.
