After releasing "Aether" earlier this spring didn't work out as planned due to personal reasons, I'm happy to tell you that Aether is now officially available from Nomadic Kids Republic. After "Long Forgotten Days Under a Dust Covered Sky" released earlier in the month, "Aether" is the second release this year for this nice Japan based label.
Aether is the first album I produced entirely on a modular synthesizer in combination with additional processing and fieldrecordings. Although it is one hell of a dark record, it also is my most introspective and personal album. Most of the tracks are based on improvisations and aleatoric processes inside the synthesizer. The results are dark, slowing pulsating rooms, oozing a neon void, a dark glow like a promise of empty wet streets at dawn.
The album is available at your favourite record stores and online shops. You can also purchase it directly from me for $15 including postage or together with my "Long Forgotten Days … " album for $ 22.5 including postage. Just drop me a line.
