After the records for my “Seasons” project arrived I started to work off the pre-orders. Since within less than a week all records were sold out I am very grateful that this experiment / project was actually successful. If there are still people who are interested in a 10″ (lathe cute, handmade, therefore relatively expensive) I ask them to contact me via my Bandcamp store by email.
In case there are still 20 interested people I would place another order for the production. For all those who don’t want to buy a physical copy of the music but still would like to have it, there is a permanent digital download of the project in my Bandcamp store…
Seasons is the result of a grant I worked on in the second half of 2021. Thematically, the EP deals with the translation of nature sounds and sensory impressions that I collected in countless walks in a nearby forest. As part of this scholarship, I have created two works that seasonally outline the rising as well as falling seasons. An important aspect of this was to use field recordings that I captured during these walks, but not to use them as sound collage in the classical sense. These recordings went through various digital signal paths so that they blurred with synthesized sounds, resulting in an independent sonic aesthetic.
To finish this work I have commissioned a 10″ which will be released in early 2022 in an extremely limited edition in my Bandcamp shop.
All vinyl EPs were handmade in real time, one by one (lathe cut). This results in a relatively high selling price.
Das Projekt wurde gefördert durch ein Stipendium des Ministeriums für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kultur Baden-Württemberg.
