On the new album "Sequencing Detachments", the Viennese duo schtum
transforms elements of electronic dance music into detailed, oversized sound close-ups.
Through repetitive structures, layers of sound eventually detach themselves,
thus developing a life of their own,
leaving behind an abstract impression of emotional depth.
schtum continue the minimalist approach of their debut "Feed" on this new release:
All sounds on the album are generated with signals from
guitar, bass and a bass-drum-module fed through effect pedals.
Viennese musician Asfast was once again involved in the post-production.
Several video works will accompany the album, one of which shows a collaboration
with Marin Alsop, chief conductor of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra,
another shows a growing cress seed, and another an improvisation
in the huge metal storage basin of the Vienna water tower.
schtum performed at renowned festivals for
experimental electronic and contemporary music such as
CTM in Berlin's Berghain, Sonic Protest in Paris,
Donaufestival Krems, Novas Frequencias in Rio de Janeiro,
Wien Modern or Gamma Festival in St. Petersburg.
