I have made this album as a fieldrecording-project using only sounds directly from my neighbourhood. All came together in fall 2011 when I recorded all the sounds with a fieldrecorder. A week later I processed the stuff and did all the composing work using guitars and a Laptop. Two years later I decided to release it as a free record.
The most sounds you hear come from outside, processed guitar and foundsounds, I used synthesizers to feature the voicings.
UNOIKI celebrates its third anniversary with a special jubilee edition:
Sixteen tracks spread over two CDs hold in a handmade packaging in four different artworks! Bang!
Each packaging is a foldable poster and sculpture let you explore space, light and music in a very playful and extremely beautiful way. For the first time Jonathan Mangelinckx used photos for his artworks.
Music-wise choenyi from Asheville, USA, is back on board. He provides a further track with Easy Listening, his platform for microtonality, showcasing a session together with Daniel Abide on two 12 edo guitars.
Another new name here is Paralelo, a collaboration with J-Lab and Dr.Nojoke, who are working for one year on their album for UNOIKI based on their Berlin Wall of Sound project (realised live to the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 2009).
This is a first exclusive insight into it.
Tendts is the moniker of the Greece brothers Fotis and Christos Papadakis (aka Trigerfinger) researching on complex, abstract and melodic bass music.
DDrhode is nobody else than the Iranian Sohrab, who is known through his drone-ambient album on Touch. As DDrhode he explores deep and minimal House a la Farben (Jan Jelinek).
All others may not be introduced anymore.
For UNOIKI I`m doing the mastering and some tracks I released on the well designed CD compilations. One of the them is the new remix-project REDEFINITION. Soon there will be a second one which is in my ears a bit better than this one.
For REDEFINITION twenty-two carefully selected producers from diverse fields from all over the world had been asked for participation:
new upcoming talents as well as established artists – all of them standing for a highly interesting, exciting and unique style somewhere between dubstep, dubtechno, drone, glitch, sound-art, minimal, techno, house, IDM – always with an experimental approach right in the sense of UNOIKI.
Redefintion 1 – undefined compiles the first half of remixes of all tracks from the album UNdefinition, refined and made-up for a fine listening experience on a strictly limited CD in an edition of just 100 copies.
Jonathan Mangelinckx is responsible for the artwork and the book-sized handmade fold-up cover, which reflects the abstract music with its unusual design in a perfect way and which in a way stands for an implied and unspoken UNOIKI statement:
