NºXX

The ambiguous title “NºXX” refers to both the Latin writing for night and number twenty. Much as “Tenth” (Other Heights, 2010) was a closing album for the Reduct series 1 to 9, “NºXX” is a closing album for the Reduct series 11 to 19.

As the reference in the title to night suggests, the music is all about nocturnal dub vibes, weaving through moonlit ambient clouds.

Nineteenth Reduct

For the nineteenth installment of the Reduct series I took inspiration from the initial series 1 through 9 with its extended hardware sessions, resulting in two 10+ minute dub techno tracks with a vintage flair.

I N F R A KLANG [Remastered]

Thirteen years after its conception, a remaster of the Infraklang catalog was long overdue. Set up as an audio blog, parallel to the Reduct series, its focus was to release more diverse recordings from the new studio. 

For this album though, I have limited myself to remaster just the Ohrwert recordings, which still clocks in at over 90 minutes. As none of the tracks dip below the ten minute mark, they range from extensive tube-amplified tape echo excercises, to a half-beat crossover between Berlin-school and dub techno, all documenting a slice of time I spent in the studio, jamming into the wee hours of the morning.

Eighteenth Reduct

These tracks have made several appearances this year on various podcasts. One of the versions has been published on Soundcloud with artwork created by a neural network, which is added as a bonus item. 

Technically, the music is an all-out hardware extravaganza, combining sequential and dub elements with both analog and digital sources. The main difference between the versions is the hihat programming, which, in a subtle way, dictates the density of the music.

Seventeenth Reduct

One year since the last Ohrwert release, a new Reduct has been long overdue. “Roozendaal” was originally composed around a short field recording taken in the heathlands near Roozendaal, but the actual field recording did not make the final cut. However, the original version is added as a bonus track. “C/2020 F3” was inspired by the comet “Neowise” that passed Earth last year and was visible to the naked eye for a few weeks. A photograph of the comet, taken right outside the studio, is added as a bonus item.

Sixteenth Reduct

For the sixteenth Reduct, I have selected two tracks which maintain the tempo acceleration of the fifteenth Reduct. “Levis” and “Levo” have an airy feel to them due to their melodic structures, but are grounded by solid bass lines.
