Le compositeur allemand Pantha du Prince viendra présenter son nouveau live en featuring avec The Triad, vendredi 4 septembre au Trianon.
A cette occasion, il donne et commente ses 5 tracks favorites.
It is one of the classic pantha du prince tracks, we did in the early days, it combines a deep poetic sonic world with dark house beats and a noise pop atmosphere ending in a wall of sound. it is a landscape of butterflies to dance to. full of rough beautieness and euphoria.
Describes a way to deal with electroaquoustique experimentation a whirlwind of real sounds recorded in my kitchen and further on transformed into a melodic ambient but danceable track, i think it was a true revelation when i experimented with the freeware plug ins of smart audio. still i tried to keep a melodic sensibility and stay true to the originally recorded sounds. i tried to zoom into the real sounds and hear the microscopic elements itself being music.
Steiner im Flug
Here i sampled a split second of popol vuh´s sound track to « the great extasy of ski jumper steiner » then i did a loop. i was very much sucked into this short movie of werner herzog.
Welt am Draht
Is also based on a movie series of rainer werner fassbinder: welt am draht is a classic in german tv production from the 70`S, here i recorded some flageolet tones from the akkustik guitar like the simulacrum in welt am draht.
for black noise we recorded in a landslide area in the swiss alps, this tones from outside i sampled and created my own instruments from it. welt am draht has a eeriness but still a beauty that is intertwined with sadness, i love the beat and how akkustik sounds fall into electronic process into a pleasurable journey to swing your body along to.
For this track i recorded an african thumb piano in a european tuning i processed the sounds to grm tools and it gives the sounds a multidimensional perspective.
it was a situation where tyler pope of !!! and lcd sound system was visiting my studio and he was playing along with his bass guitar.
also i recorded some analog synthesizer on top so it became this cluster of processes conected to a big thunderstorm i experienced during a stay at the dead sea.
we will definitely play this jam in paris in a special live version.
