Atom™: Texturen II

Part two of Atom™'s minimalist, ambient magnum opus, airdrops you into a void of undulating sonic modulation with nothing but the dream of silent huskies for company. Schmidt has always been a maestro of harnessing non-repetitive repetition and on "Texturen II" he takes that to a psychedelic extreme, constructing a smooth, digital crystal within the stereo field. Almost imperceptible sheets of binary sleet superimpose themselves on flows of deep, glacial pulse-width gestures. 

The ensemble is minimal but ever-fluctuating, expansive but hyper-detailed. A frozen mirage. Here, the vistas are endless, the peaks illusory, the troughs few and the symmetries pure. Eat your rations, try to keep moving and don't go snow blind. 

Available for Pre Order now, on limited edition compact disc and crystallised binary download.

The "Texturen" live set will be premiered on the 7th of May at the Minoritenkirche in Krems (Austria) as part of the Donaufestival 2016.

Atom™ & Tobias - Extended Live Set

Catalogue number AAA 157 is the first new and unreleased production on "AAA". As if this wasn't novelty enough it surprises with yet another superlative: unless proven otherwise, their "Extended Live Set, Berlin 10/12/2014" is the first release of its kind - not only that the live performance itself, executed at Berlin's "Panorama Bar", was of 6 hours of duration, the recording presented is released as ONE 5 hour digital (.wav) file (through the archive only)! Technically restricted to 4gB, a 16bit .wav file is what the 21st century offers as "high res" music data carrier, yet it is obvious to state, that "AAA 157" currently transcends any existing physical format. Due to technical reasons, the available MP3/AAC versions of this recording, offered through iTunes and other alike channels, had to be split into five one hour slices. The full five hour file is only available HERE directly through the archive.

Atom™: Texturen I

New Atom™ album out now!

“Texturen I” is Atom™’s first solo release on the No. label imprint which he is running with Material Object. Adding words to Atom™’s prolific 150+ album catalogue would be an exercise in futility. Especially in the field of ambient music, his output has been both prolific and profound from the early ‘90s onwards with albums such as “Orange”, “Live at del I/S/C”, or “Superficial Depth”, to name but a few.

“Texturen I” connects somewhere there in the ambient space, presenting a one hour track which can be described as a bright, lucid excursion into minimal sonic surfaces. Due to its obvious minimalism and perhaps because it lacks tension, darkness or the habitual psychedelic twists, “Texturen I” feels like a positive slow motion zoom into a limitless white void. Released as catalogue number No. 909, “Texturen I” continues the series of classic ambient releases “No.” had put out over the last 18 months, quite a few in which Atom™ himself had participated.
