Singularry Ever had a dream?
Lost it?
Dived down?
Found misty fields, no lights?
All of a sudden blue spots with bleeding sparks light up, move, a humming fills the emptiness, sounds rise from the dark, film noir, blade runner, sure yo, thats the feeling kicking in,... Favorite track: Ascent.

about

Following a two-year break, Hamburg based synthesist Reinklang returns with a new full-length album of instrumental electronic music. Setting ambient and drone elements against IDM style beats with hints of retro synth pop and minimal electronica, Reinklang further expands his stylistic repertoire. Diving deeper into modular synthesis with this release Reinklang introduces generative elements into his improvisational patch performances.

Performed entirely on a Eurorack modular system and the Alesis A6 16-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer each track is an exercise in self-restriction, whenever possible avoiding the nowadays ubiquitous copy/paste editing and overdubbing typically associated with computer-based music production. Except for providing basic MIDI sequencing duties in two of the A6 solo tracks, the computer was only used in the mastering stage of this production.

Each track was recorded in a single pass – without overdubs or multi-tracking – direct to iPad in high-resolution stereo using PreSonus Capture software. The album was then mastered in PreSonus Studio One.

Instruments:
Eurorack modular system
Alesis A6 synthesizer solo performance (tracks 6, 8, 10)

Detailed patch notes are available for download with the purchase of this release.
