A set of impromptu performed electronic music, recorded at July 10, 2021, in Berlin, Germany.
Composed, programmed, and recorded in real-time by a crazy mind and his laptop. No prepared sequences, patterns, or melodies used.
»The cancer/zodiacal crab is also Berhard’s sign, and the hermit crab is called Pagurus Bernardus. This was meant to be. And didn’t last year turn us all into hermit crabs? And I have to think of Franz Kafka’s Mr. Samsa, who turned into an insect overnight just like that more than a hundred years ago.« – Chris Kriegerowski
Live recording of a private concert performance at Castle Studios on March 8, 2021.
Using the capabilities of the amazing Castle Studios, Magnet was recorded by mic’ing and re-amping all the electronic signals, turning them into “real” acoustic vibration. An actual reverb room, metal reverb plates and rotary speakers, plus the resonating strings of nearby grand piano have been picked up by microphones. These signals were used exclusively for this mix.
Magnet is not only about being a showcase of how vintage gear and current electronic sound production technologies can merge. It is an epic musical statement with a physical presence.
