Excuse me for that shitty headline, but it looks pretty … um… pretty cool.
2 NEW albums are finished. Is that awesome or is that awesome? It’s probably just mediocre and boring, but at least I am excited.
I should stop making all those paragraphs and start to talk about the real stuff.
A NEW STEFANUS STROM ALBUM.
So… here’s the first album. It’s my 2nd album after “this is iii!”, which you still can download for free here. The name of the second album is “Presence Loop” and consists of one 63-minute-long soundscape, split into 11 tracks.
Cover art: Stefanus Strom / Annette S. (This is only the first suggestion of the album cover. If you find it stooopid or have a better cover, please tell me!!).
This album is a bit more aggressive, more propulsive than “this is iii!”. It’s the result of 13 months of work. I worked on both albums, iii! and Presence Loop, at the same time. Of course you can download this album for free when it’s published.
Date: probably October 2010.
ANOTHER ALBUM WITH STEFANUS STROM
This is the first album of Exc!amation Disko, a new post-rock project by a good friend of mine and myself. My friend played thee geenious e-geetar and thee dizzy drums. He also sings a little bit and we both play with a rusty metal xylophone. I added samples, ambient, drones, experimental stuff and found sound. The record is about 60 minutes long, 3 tracks. Yep, only 3 tracks. Every track is about 20 minutes each. Those lengthy songs are pretty diversified, experimental and… quite casual. This is the cover:Cover art: Stefanus Strom. The name of the album is “The Collapse of nearly everything”, which is a pretty ironic title. That’s why we chose it.
It’s a collage of post-rock bits, instrumental impro, weird samples, ambient drones, field recordings, shortwave transmissions… you’ll like it if you like post-rock and my music.
