Thomas Köner is one of the most influential modernist minimal composers. His music is often defined as dark ambient or drone, material from gongs, shadowy resonances and boreal ambience, but at the same time its sound with constant fluctuation. »Aubrite« was first released 1995 on the label Barooni.

Köners soundscapes were no longer simply dark, the question now is that of a profound blackness. Such is the generic darkness of the abyss, the void and vacuum, the darkness of more than silence, of catastrophe and cataclysm, but also the soundscapes have utopian moments. It is a cosmological blackness, the black of nonbeing.
