Industry

by Stefan Goldmann

  • Compact Disc (CD)

    INDUSTRY sheds all personalized effort and tests how far you can get by using presets only. All sounds are obscure factory presets from three obsolete 1990s Japanese workstation synths, all effects are presets, all notes are quantized and most panning is purely accidental (laid out in the presets themselves).

    INDUSTRY doesn’t rely on successful presets but on failed sounds of now obsolete synths – industrial assumption of where culture will go, but chose not to. The result is a surprisingly pleasant listening experience with effortless grooves and rich textures – and mildly demonic connotations. From smooth to kicking – a conveyor belt suffering from mood swings. As beautiful as the scheduled meeting of a pvc sheet and a thermoform mould on a workbench. 100% presets. 0% sound design.

    The cover artwork and booklet photography feature a series by multi-award winning artist Kirill Golovchenko.

  • Record/Vinyl

    The vinyl edition has been carefully cut at D&M Berlin and comes on especially heavy vinyl for the best audio reproduction possible. The cover is printed on thick cardboard with a matte finish.
