Johannes was first brought to public attention in the USA with an interview
published by ND magazine in 1999. Before then, his work was mostly known
by a close circle of friends and students in Italy and Germany. That being the
case, the ND interview was a bit of an anomaly, especially since he didn't
really have a release to his credit apart from a very rare self-published
cassette which was not even mentioned in the article, and an obscure
field recording CD released in 2011 pertaining to Johannes' wind harps.

The tracks on this CD were recorded between 2005 and 2006, yet the music
seems to have surfaced from another time - completely isolated from
influences of the current era. Dimpflmeier also seems to be an "assistant"
to the unique and arcane instruments that he helped manifest. As he has
stated, his instruments seem to be "autonomous - their own masters"...
However, that is not to say that it doesn't require a form of mastery to
successfully "collaborate" with such strange instruments (with names like
"Erede", "Onkel Kranius", "Bicordo Meditar", "Rotellie", "Incubophon", etc.

For those in need of references to compare this otherwise idiosyncratic
artist's music with, it can be said that those who enjoy so-called
"koschmische musik", BBC Radiophonic Workshop or Laurie Spiegel,
would also find this music fascinating as well.
