Twin Paradox Series
Twin Paradox 001 Patronen A | Patronen B
There is a noticeable background noise in all these tracks and we love it. The background noise is mainly generated due to the recording method of Patronen and the machines he used to produce his tracks.
All tracks are recorded in real time to tape, there is no other reason for it than the quest for a concrete sound and that sound is what you can hear in each track. Modified analog machines recorded directly to tape and then to other tapes …
In the last few weeks Patronen and me discussed what way to choose for the mastering. There are incredible tools today to erase any type of noise, but we decided to keep the recordings exactly as they were. I think it is very important to keep the constant presence of the noise, not only during the tracks, but also the beginnings and ends, so after some tests we decided to keep the original sound of the tapes but with a precise mastering that works for vinyl. We are really proud of the result.
This record is not a compilation of good tracks, it's a conceptual album, the first release for the TWIN PARADOX SERIES.
The project of Patronen is the mirror through which we want to look at ourselves. This album represents a 100% the spirit of Fundamental Recods.
Twin Paradox 002 Das Muster | Mumm
DAS MUSTER - DER LANGE WEG
As Das Muster I am mostly doing dark science fiction electro. The meaning of Das Muster is or could be pattern, sample, model, a scheme. It depends on the listener, I always wanted to keep that open to the listener as I also imagine this or that. But the main meaning for me is the scheme or pattern behind things.
I want to transport feelings with that music, good or bad feelings like fear or being monitored, that's why it mostly sounds dark. The overall sound of Das Muster is done with analog synths to keep it timeless with the technique that is there since decades.
Twin Paradox 003 Luke Earggogle | Faceless Mind
Luke talks about Snow In June:
"Snow In June was mostly written and produced almost a year ago in Greece on the island Crete. Since Im not the biggest fan of the sun all day long I brought a mini studio to the hotel where I could escape the hot weather after the beach and put the the aircondition on the max. Machines were all in sync and the journey began... Also after having some nice conversations with Mr Alek Stark we planned and exchanged some thoughts around this record and it became this paradox double album. The music I guess speaks for it self. I think it has alot of my sound in it but also alot other influences that I think not even Eargoggle had heard before. For me like all music I do its a tribute to machines and feelings to create a new world. To be able to express and combine them... Travelling is always mysterious and interesting...
Hope you can travel with it! Use the Eargoggles!..
Faceless Mind about Data Bara:
Faceless Mind is the project of Johan inkinen & Luke Eargoggle. Basically its about experiment and alot of red wine. We have a sound that we dont want to challenge to much but still go deeper in what we do and discover on during the path. On this album its tracks from the last two years even if most of them are made pretty recent. We are really happy to release it on Fundamental Records
