STEVE HAUSCHILDT PREMIERES NEW TRACK ‘VICINITIES’ FROM UPCOMING ALBUM WHERE ALL IS FLED; OUT 25TH SEPTEMBER VIA KRANKY

  Steve Hauschildt has revealed another preview of the upcoming new album, Where All Is Fled, to be released on 25th September via kranky. ‘Vicinities’ is beautifully sublime, forming a space emblematic of tranquility and serenity that perfectly captures the craft of Hauschildt’s electronic synth.

LISTEN TO THE NEW TRACK ‘VICINITIES’ 

His latest release since 2012’s Sequitur,  Where All Is Fled sonically harkens back to his earlier albums such as Rapt for Liquid Minister and Tragedy & Geometry, it slowly becomes apparent that it is also a divergence from those recordings. Both the artwork and the music on this new work were heavily inspired by surrealist landscape paintings, early alchemical emblems, and recurring visions Steve had from dreams. The result is a pristine series of cascading melodies, fantastical terrains of layered lattices, and overlapping patterns of synthesizers superimposed with orchestral instrumentation. Hidden in the crevices of the album are processed crowd sounds, re-sampled text-to-speech synthesis, piano, and animal noises which reveal themselves after repeated listens and blur together notions of artificial and natural sound. While slowly unfurling, each sound is given it’s own place and space, never hurried, never cluttered.

  The album is a modern kosmische milepost, and the most accomplished statement of Steve Hauschildt’s vision yet. Check out the artwork and track list below:
