'Solo' [SLP016] is the Slip debut of Berlin-based composer Andreas Dzialocha: a collection of lilting electric bass melodies refracted through a tangled network of live computer processing. 'Solo'‘s ruptured nocturnes are intimate duets between instrument and machine, with Dzialocha eloquently responding to randomised pulsing reverbs, filters, and compressors, which snatch his delicate motifs into virtual space in real time.
Andreas studied art history, musicology, and computer science, and is founder and director of Berlin-based Serenus Zeitblom Oktett, and upstart publishing platform BLATT 3000.
Gross, creepy psuedo-techno, vaguely frightening, sure to give raver kids the worst trip of their lives. Reminds me of John Carpenter soundtrack work. And then right in the middle there's 'Special long Version' with Sue Tompkins' sweet, naive, adorable vocals that brings this stunning beauty in the middle of this uncomfortable weirdness. Great stuff. pierrelefou
