about

With "Voices Of The Dead", Stefan Goldmann searches for the common root of all music in an electroacoustic setting. From this album “Turret” is already renowned as the intro sequence of Richie Hawtin’s groundbreaking DE9 Transitions mix album and was also added to the IMEB Phonoteque collection at Biblioteque Nationale de France.

“At first sight we recognise upfront elements like a melody or rhythmic pattern, which we associate with a certain piece or style of music, but there are tensions between two notes, hard-to-define background information that at a closer look is found everywhere - within the music of Coltrane and Stravinsky, Death Metal and 9th century Byzantine chants. If there is anything like a total, hidden and common ground, than it is this information lurking in the background, linking the tones. These are the “Voices Of The Dead", the heritage of an endless line of ancestors brought forward through the centuries. I tried to make these elements audible as clearly as possible. Anything else has been cleared from the music: tonal systems, metric patterns, stable timbres - all first order elements.”
