Pictures are often used as illustrations for music. Artists visualize CDs, Videos are made to support live performances. Why not turn this around?
<dE/mutE> asked several artists and photographers to send him pictures to transform into music. Seven artists replied and seven tracks came to life.
Given photography that included architecture, nature, a Romanian graveyard, arctic ice and 1970s business buildings, among others, <dE/mutE> took inspiration from the images and crafted the resulting album, "Visual Noise."
Visual Noise' soundscapes covers territories as diverse as the original imagery, from pulsing synth compositions, to ambient noise and open, ethereal works.
For <dE/mutE>, this was an adventure in sound construction as it hopefully will be for the listener/viewer.
released April 13, 2014
From the Berlin School and the sounds of early Industrial, <dE/mutE> has been influenced by and immersed in sound construction and composition since the 1980's.
In addition to his own works, <dE/mutE>, also works with Simona Turini and Ingo Loeb on "CALENDAR - an annual cycle in word - sound - image." Simona provides text and spoken word as Ingo contributes oppressive and touching images and <dE/mutE> layers loops of musical phrases and sounds.
<dE/mutE> has also provided remixes for Bad Sector, Epoch, Zindagi and Psychepoppet.
