This project was founded in 1993 as a colaboration of the former cult-project Ars Moriendi by Phillip M?nch (Synapscape) and Andreas Schramm (Asche). The aim is very dense, ritual-ambient sounds. In 1995 Andrea B?rner (Morgenstern) joined this project. They made several interesting live-performances all over Germany. Actually Templegarden's is organized as a loose collective with several friends (among whom are Leigh Hunt and Raison d'Etre), so the sound-variety has become enormous; but always in the mystic ritual sector.
Old fairytales, nature, magic places and the unexplainable are their main inspirations. Most of the sounds are a result of sampled ethno-loops, a convertion from natural analog datas to digital. So the technical aspect of this project becomes a symbol for the dialectical relationship between nature and (industrial) culture, which can be experienced in those special Templegarden's atmosphere: the impression of ritual-emotional maturalness, which we're all seeking, is satisfied by the result of a technical cultural act.
