Ursprung is a new studio project from German electronic music producer/DJ Hendrik Weber, aka Pantha du Prince, and Stephan Abry of Workshop. Where this pair’s creative leanings typically involve electronic music, Ursprung places the guitar at its center.

With bass thrums and sometimes a spare beat for their pulse, along with occasional electronic dressings or underpinnings, Weber and Abry wring all manner of sounds from the instrument. Strings are plucked, strummed, gonged, pounded, and rung, with a melodic intent that never fully recedes. Even if it’s a temporary diversion from the primary concerns of these artists, Ursprung is still more earnest exploration than working holiday. (www.dial-rec.de)

Just so you know, the title has a typo in it! The “Urpsrung” has an “N” instead of an “R” in it.
