The Extragalactic Sessions Part 3

The Extragalactic Sessions is a series of recordings, sonically spiralling amidst the outer filaments of the universe in an attempt to escape the fluxus of life on Earth. 

After traveling through blazar jets and crossing the great voids, we have arrived in an extragalactic planetary system. Drifting in orbit, gravitationally locked.

B-Wave Festival 2021 (cancelled)

Unfortunately the B-Wave festival has been cancelled. I would have had my debut performance with a special live show filled with electronic space music. Below a statement from the organization.

It is with great pain in our hearts that we (CC Muze, modular404, B-Wave) have to announce that the B-Wave Festival will not take place this year.

Due to the sudden flare-up of covid19 and the adjusted measures, unfortunately, we cannot offer the great experience we had in mind. Under these circumstances, we cannot guarantee the safety of the visitors, while we as organizer feel responsible not to spread the virus further. We first considered postponing the festival, but ultimately decided to cancel it.

All tickets and exhibitors will be refunded.

We think this is the right decision in these special circumstances.

B-Wave, modular404, CC Muze.

The Extragalactic Sessions Part 2

The Extragalactic Sessions is a series of recordings, sonically spiralling amidst the outer filaments of the universe in an attempt to escape the fluxus of life on Earth. 

After our journey in part one, we are now crossing the great voids in the northern and southern galactic hemispheres, accelerating into cosmological expansion.

The Extragalactic Sessions Part 1

The Extragalactic Sessions is a series of recordings, sonically spiralling amidst the outer filaments of the universe in an attempt to escape the fluxus of life on Earth.

In part one we head for Delta Cephei, about 887 million light-years away, and travel in superluminal motion like a light echo towards the jet of a distant blazar. Sit back and let yourself be guided through the cosmos by melodic mazes, ethereal soundscapes, and a touch of silk-like solos.

Manifolds

Out now on US imprint Synphaera: Manifolds. Three long-form post Berlin-school tracks in full sequencer galore. The album and track titles were inspired by various two-dimensional manifolds represented in a three dimensional space. A transformation that, from my perspective, is a good analogy for the way that my music transforms from a few notes in a straight line to a complex pattern where the notes move in every direction, but maintain their harmony.

Decennium

Today, November 15, marks my tenth anniversary on Bandcamp. In celebration of the past decade I offer you the full length versions of my first two releases; “Quiescence” and “Deity Reign“. Originally released as 26-minute versions due to Bandcamp’s file size limitations at the time for new artists, now available in their full 73-minute glory.

In addition to this, you can use the code ‘AS10’ for a 10% discount for the remainder of the month for everything in my discography.

Dronology MMXX

As part of my ten year anniversary on Bandcamp this month, I present an album that predates the platform in concept, though never had a formal release. Dronology was part my analog ambient project in 2007 and consisted of patches that would play throughout the night whilst recording them to MiniDisc during my sleep. 

The recordings for the 2020 version of the concept are various takes on composing drone music and include aleatoric composing techniques and signal processing, as well as live improvisation. 

I’ve included the five unreleased MiniDisc recordings from 2007 as bonus tracks, with individual cover photos of the original discs.

Cosmic Reef

Cosmic Reef, an image that marks Hubble’s thirty years in space, inspired an album that marks my ten years on Bandcamp. Clocking in at well over 100 minutes, it’s the longest sequencer-driven album I’ve released so far.
