Macro greets rhythmic expressionism: Stefan Goldmann’s “The Grand Hemiola” is the first real innovation in the vinyl format in years! 144 locked grooves build a toolkit that breaks out of the limitation of one 4/4 cycle and brings unique possiblities to create complex polyrhythms just with two decks and a mixer. Stefan Goldmann’s first ever double vinyl album is a take on the infinite possibilities of rhythmic layering. Percussion-heavy, focussed on clashing metres, deeply exploring the sound set – from the orchestral “Grand Hemiola”, to the triplet-feel of “Megi’s Waltz”, from the 11/8 pattern of “Double Hendecagon” to the anti-loops of “Away From The Flock”: A unique, non-conformist album of haunted acoustics, haptic percussion and deep rhythmic expression. A true, first time invention comes on two sides of the vinyl set: “The Grand Hemiola” loop toolkit overcomes the time restriction of locked grooves: one record contains loops in 4/4, the other in 3/4 (employing the time differences of the rotation rates 33 and 45 rpm). In the mix, they sum up to an extended cycle of 3x 4/4 or 4x 3/4 and enable building complex “3 over 4” polyrhythms (“Hemiolas”). You can mix loop into loop for hours without ever getting trapped. More than an album, this is a Note: pitch down side D to approx. -1.5 to match the loops’ bpm rate on sides B & D
