about

I`m still fascinated by the sound reverberation of huge underground caves, vast spaces, natural surroundings, as well as sound reverberation in human made architecture. In my past productions I have experimented with lots of field recordings, as well as with analog synths to create huge echo spaces, which remind of underground caves.

In "Xars" I develope the idea in the direction of deep and dubbed out techno, creating more architectural spaces, using sound and field recordings of big "unnatural" city spaces such as garages and cellars, as well as nature recordings.

The emphasis is on vast echochambers, some elements are live recordings, others are arranged productions. I push more in the direction of using tape pops, crackles and interferences as well as
click n cut sounds from my two noise modules to create significant percussive sounds. I incorporated lots of field and sound recordings, from heavily modified nature recordings to garage door openers, steps, stones and glitches from old cassette tapes.
