On July 13th Lotic will present their debut album ‘Power’ amongst the immersive walls of MONOM’s 4DSOUND installation at Funkhaus, Berlin. As a physical realisation of the Houston born, Berlin based artist’s spatially inquisitive work, this one-off event will serve as both a manifestation of the album’s microscopic nuances and a celebration of its release that day via Tri Angle Records.
‘Power’ is the soundtrack to a search for empowerment, sourcing various strands of Lotic’s identity and binding them together with references both discreet and uncensored. At the same time, it questions the very definition of the word, reflecting on the varying ways in which empowerment might present itself. The hypnotic rhythmic patterns of Texan marching bands lend support to crystalline melodic airs and frenzied ambient distortions. For the first time, Lotic’s own vocals play a central role, commanding a dialogue within the animated ecosystem of their sonic world, whilst simultaneously addressing the listener directly.
Berlin-based Italian producer Shapednoise has been working as an independent musician for the past four years, releasing his music for some of the most influent labels in the avantgarde panorama like Hospital Productions and Type. He focuses his research on noises and innovative practices within the production process. More specifically, he is experimenting with unconventional production practices using field recordings, modular synthesizers, and extreme digital processing/editing in order to explore the metamorphosis of sounds when combining unusual timbres, structures, and rhythms. Shapednoise was involved in several collaborative projects, with Justin K. Broadrick, Black Rain, Rabit, Mumdance and Demdike Stare’s Miles Whittaker to name just a few. His unique style has shown its unquestionable versatility to the taste of illustrious colleagues like Aphex Twin.
