New rework for Siegmar Fricke by Marina Stewart.


Siegmar Fricke has released a compilation of unreleased tracks recorded and produced in 1995. ›Physical Modelling‹ spans seven unheard cues from the archive.

Regarding his recognition as a crafter of sampledelica these tracks showcase a mature and technically sophisticated approach towards electronica not too far from his later sonic explorations as Pharmakustik. Utilizing midi-controlled equipment and sampling, the album leaves the path of the previous light-hearted production characteristics.
Tracks like ›Monokuliert‹ or ›Cryoglide‹ inhabit a modernist feeling for 1995, closer to the irregular patterns of Warp attachés LFO or the zig zag techniques developed by Detroits Dopplereffekt.

›Physical Modelling‹ was carefully restored and remastered from the original 4-track master at Pharmakustik-Studio. As a bonus, Pharmakustik and Marina Stewart reworked two cues from the album. Diving into Zeitgeist experimentalism, the remixes update the already futuristic character of the originals to modern standards.

The album was released on 9th January and is available for download on Bandcamp.

Work on Fangs And Feathers started.


Thorsten Soltau started to work on his upcoming documentary Fangs And Feathers. The first shots have been made with more to follow during summer time. Edits and dubs are to follow during the second half of the year. The soundtrack spanning three interstices and two full-length compositions is conducted by Femurl.
