Teimo is the second solo album from German Ambient music producer, Thomas Köner. Köner has already fully developed his characteristic drone style here. It is also the record which made Köner known in electronic scene and together with next album, "Permafrost" (which were later re-issued in 1996 on one disc by Mille Plateaux - Teimo & Permafrost) is considered by many critics and fans as his best work.[citation needed] Köner used a variety of techniques to record sound on "Teimo". One of which was recording gongs underwater, thus creating an almost disorienting yet beautiful drone.
