WALLS, CORRIDORS, BAFFLES (LP)
12" Vinyl UK
Präsens Editionen presents the debut album from Swiss musician and producer Samuel Savenberg aka S S S S.
Following various releases on Haunter Records, aufnahme+wiedergabe, and LUX Records, the LP tries to find an approach to an artistic expression beyond tropes of darkness, harshness and excess.
The aesthetic of Walls, Corridors, Baffles is radically and uncompromisingly sober. Instead of treating the sound with an abstract, conceptual or symbolic overlay, Savenberg emphasizes its materiality. Unadulterated percussive force meets an astoundingly precise and frugal vocabulary of electroacoustic sounds. Passages extended over long melodies invite the listener to lose oneself in the contrastive emptiness. [info sheet from distr.]
