In collaboration with Graham Dunning (London), he released the album “Glocken” (2019, Invisible City Records). Together they dig deep into the beauty of textural studies, analogue media and surface details. As well as the Transoceanic EP (2020) on BB15/Linz, which deals with the cultural imagination of dematerialisation, historical sound carriers and digital colonialism.
His latest vinyl edition "Donaueschingen 2020" is a sound recording of the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2020, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. Brosamer documented the festival, that did not take place in a performative act of silence on tape. This record was the first release on the Cologne based label “Total Silence”, he co-founded with Manuel Schaub in 2021.
Brosamer's studio is the sound archive. He researches and works in the Phono Museum Paris, the Berlin Phonogramm-Archive and the Schmauder Collection, one of the most extensive collections of historical sound recordings.
