Stefan Goldmann - Industry

Nov 12, 2014 macrom40 INDUSTRY sheds all personalized effort and tests how far you can get by using presets only. All sounds are factory presets of 3 obsolete 1990s Japanese workstation synths, all effects are presets, all notes are quantized and most panning is purely accidental (laid out in the preset sounds). INDUSTRY doesn’t rely on successful presets, but on failed sounds of now obsolete synthesizers - industrial assumptions of where culture will go, but where it chose not to. The result is a surprisingly pleasant listening experience with effortless grooves and rich textures - andRead the whole story

Ernesto Ferreyra - Some Kind Of Sign

Nov 12, 2014 cadcd14Ernesto Ferreyra’s 2010 debut album for Cadenza, the intricate and balanced “El Paraíso De Las Tortugas”, was something of a landmark release, not only for the Argentinian DJ and producer, but also for the minimal electronic dance scene, taking the micro-techno genre out of the clubs and into a full length listening experience.

Four years on, and Ernesto has certainly lost none of the magic and spark that made his debut long player a ‘keeper’. On “Some Kind Of Sign”, we find the producer seriously in his element, with his productionRead the whole story

Hamlet - Piano

Oct 28, 2014 svt138Just in time for autumn, Fran invites us into club music’s parallel world with the project Hamlet: aided by Oded K.dar (NÖRD / The Koletzkis) on the piano, she presents cover versions of beloved electronic classics such as ‘Sky and Sand’, ‘Limit to your Love’, ‘Howling’ or ‘Hypnotized’ on the fittingly titled album ‘Piano’. The initial idea came to the duo at a birthday party; the first baby steps followed the very next day. Surprised by the potential, the autodidactic singer Fran and the studied concert pianist OdedRead the whole story

Baba Stiltz - Total

Oct 28, 2014 barn026Baba Stiltz hails from a tradition of funky outcasts centred around the calm yet unpredictable city of Stockholm, Sweden. Since his infant days he's been guided through the nitty-gritty basics of what it is to be a true music lover by some of the city's most prolific artists, producers and djs. Despite his youth, 20-year-old Baba boasts an impressive discography, with two albums of dreamy folk-pop (as The Betlehem Beard Corporation) and a string of hit singles within the elusive Skweee scene already under his belt. His more recent studio adventures have led to three 12''Read the whole story

Beat Magazin (DE): “Feature. ”

CHRY FM (CDA): “ Wonderful sound designs - mysterious yet immersive. ”

DJ Broadcast (NL): “Online feature. ”

Electronic Beats (UK/DE): “ Imagine a world in which musicians boast about a lack of soun design in their productions. Hard to fathom? This may change. Stefan Goldmann explores the taboos surrounding pre-programmed settings. ”

EQ Magazine (UK): “ Great and Interesting idea for an album - really like the results. ”

Faze Magazin (DE): “ Stefan Goldmann ist dafür bekannt, deutlich experimenteller an elektronische Musik heranzutreten als andere Künstler. Seien es leere Vinyls zum selbst gestalten oder ein Auftritt in einem Tempel. Nun folgt mit „Industry“ ein Album, das komplett aus Presets von Synthesizern aus den 90ern entstanden ist. Das Prinzip dahinter ist, die unbekannten und teils gescheiterten Voreinstellungen zu nutzen, um ein völlig anderes Bild von der Entwicklung elektronischer Musik zu zeichnen. Für das Album benutzte Goldmann den Yamaha TG33, den Technics WSA1R und den Korg Triton Rack. Sie alle zeugen von vermuteten Bewegungen der Musikszene, die dann doch nicht eintrafen. Darauf basiert der Klang von „Industry“. ”

Klubbers (ES): “Es ahora cuando con gran placer uno se adentra en este 11 cortes recién salido de la síntesis de Stefan Goldmann titulado INDUSTRY donde de nuevo la creatividad, musicalidad y sentir especial de este productor germano nos da una nueva lección de cómo entiende (y secundamos) que se puede presentar una factura sobresaliente de música salida de máquinas con estructuras de canciones creadas y sentidas para el disfrute, con secuencias más allá del cuatro por cuatro y con la experimentación de ciertas máquinas por bandera, con un sonido, mastering y mezcla perfectos, donde con la frescura de siempre nos hace evolucionar en un paraíso de creación analógica y síntesis compleja, alejada de modismos y con una fuerte carga personal a sus espaldas. Diferente y evocador desde el track inicial hasta momentos épicos y atmosféricos con temas como “Aureola” que van componiendo un paisaje sonoro para escuchar de una sentada sin encontrar un resquicio al aburrimiento y en la que vuelve a dar en el centro de la diana de un producto, claro, conciso, elemental y maravilloso que todo el mundo debería escuchar por el bien de su capacidad de síntesis personal salida de una aparatología simple y una mente privilegiada. ”

Lectures & Workshops:: “ Stefan Goldmann will present "Industry" and "Presets" at Universität der Künste Berlin (lecture, Techno Studies symposium), Folkwang Universität der Künste Essen (lecture & workshop), Goethe Institut Japan (4 workshops) & at Robert Johnson Theorie Offenbach. The book "Presets - Digital Shortcuts to sound" will be released in November by Bookworm UK. ”

Meoko (UK): “The Art of Sound - Ten best cover artworks selection, Stefan Goldmann 'Industry' = #2. ”

Musikexpress (DE): “Goldmann ist ja nicht nur Konzeptkünstler, sondern auch ein Schlingel. Die Sounds, die er auf INDUSTRY benutzt, kommen nicht etwa aus Hipster-Instrumenten wie der Roland 909 oder dem Yamaha DX7 sondern von unspektakulären Snythesizern und Workstations, die in einer Sackgasse der Instrumenten-Evolution gelandet sind. Das Album ... erzählt auf einer höheren Ebene eine neue Geschichte. Der Gebrauch der Soundbibliotheken allein ergibt noch keine Kunst, es bedarf schon eines Künstlers, der die Sounds auswählt, collagiert und zueinander in Beziehung setzt. Goldmann holt aus diesen Vintage-Klängen das Maximale heraus. ”

Noice! Radio (UK): “Outstanding album effort by Stefan. The Bribe 2011 and Lunar Caustic are both awesome.... we really like the way the album is presented. ”

roove Magazin (DE): “Feature. ”

Sound & Recording (JP): “ Review. ”

Soundwall (IT): “Stefan Goldmann è di gran lunga una delle menti migliori all’interno della scena elettronica odierna. Lo dice la sua attività da producer, lo dice quella da label manager, lo dice anche quella da editorialista. La sua ultima impresa riunisce un po’ tutte le sue qualità ed attività in un unico progetto: il Goldmann acuto teorico, il Goldmann producer, il Goldmann giornalista. Progetto che si divide in due parti: da un lato un libro, “PRESETS”, dall’altro, un vero e proprio album: il titolo è – beffardamente – “Industry”, il concept produttivo è molto interessante perché si tratterà di un lavoro composto esclusivamente di preset presi da tre workstation semi-dimenticate. ”

The Drone (FR): “ Pour la réalisation d'Industry, brillante pochade semi théorique dont la contrainte a consisté à reprendre ses propres tubes en n'utilisant que les sons d'usine de synthétiseurs laissés brut dans le multipiste, Stefan Goldmann prend un peu d'avance sur la mode en utilisant exclusivement 3 stations de travail typique de la fin des années 80 au milieu des années 90. Pourquoi se lancer dans un tel projet? Parce qu'au-delà des considérations critiques et esthétiques par collier de 100 - Industry fait évidemment quelque chose d'étrange au cerveau: il donne l'impression de plonger la tête dans le bain du début des années 90, quand ces sons à la modernité très problématique fabriquaient le tissu sonore de notre quotidien, en nous donnant à écouter des morceaux musiques qui n'auraient pour la plupart pas pu voir le jour à l'époque. ”
