The Clock Of Dreams

Out now: “The Clock Of Dreams”, a collaborative album with the wonderful Network 23 from the UK. Three analog sequential frameworks I recorded, filled in by Alan and Simon with an eclectic range of elements, including guitar, samples, loops, and VSTi’s.

Audionautic Research Program

Audionautic Research Program was conceptualized in 2008 as a placeholder for experimental space music. The cosmic aspect has carried over, but eleven years later its emphasis lies on long-form live recordings, centered around complex sequential patterns in the vein of the Berlin-school of electronic music.

M-32 EP

Every sound on this EP has been sourced from a pair of Moog Mother-32s, some of the melodic structures were generated using their internal sequencers, or in conjunction with the Koma Komplex Sequencer. Processing included, but was not limited to, granular re-synthesis and aleatoric composition.

Out now: “Grenzwellen Drei”, a massive compilation with a boggling 55 tracks featuring artists like Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Ian Boddy, Hecq, and myself amongst many more. All proceeds will be used for the production of the Grenzwellen radio show, presented by Ecki Stieg and broadcasted on Radio Hannover.

Carinanevel

Ten years ago today, Dirk Troost (Nano.strike) and I recorded our longest cosmic journey to date under our collaborative name “Elektronikum Ltd”.

“Carinanevel” clocks well over an hour, and was recorded in my former studio “The Foundry” using a double Moog Little Phatty setup and Dirk’s Roland Juno-106, along with a Korg MS2000 and a bunch of Moogerfoogers.

In 2013 I did a remaster for private purposes, but it only seems fitting to make that available for download to celebrate the ten year anniversary.

 

Arjen Schat | Spectrum

“Arjen Schat | Spectrum” is out now and available on vinyl + digital + stream!

After months of preparation, we are really proud to present the launch of our record label Trésor D’argent by Arjen Schat en Rik de Voogd.

Our aim is to release the creative output of Arjen on vinyl, adding collectors value with each release by keeping the copies low and adding specialties in the form of printed art. Arjen’s sonic identity can be described as sequential ambient music, characterized by its emphasis on complex polyrhythmic sequencing and extensive use of analog synthesizers.

We are kicking off with the album “Spectrum” which is the first full length LP by Arjen Schat on vinyl. “Spectrum” is a contemporary continuation of the Berlin-school of electronic music. Though the essence of the style revolves around analogue synthesizers propagating melodic sequences, the sequences on this album are constantly evolving using an array of complex sequencing methods.

“Spectrum” is pressed on black 140g vinyl, full-colour sleeve, black poly-lined inner sleeve, full-colour insert, and limited to 300 copies worldwide. Every direct order through Trésor D’argent comes with a free download card which makes it easy to download your digital copy of the album.
