As my previous work this work is also an intense examination of one specific instrument. With the album TRAC_[K]T I was trying to define my musical boundaries on the "Hackbrett".
In this work I am approaching the analogue synthesizer Yamaha CS-40M. I built up the research in a journalistic kind of way. At first I made a plan of procedures, gave myself a problem formulation. In my first step I was looking for sounds that represent the "soul" of this instrument. The next step was abstracting these sounds without losing the specific character of the instrument. An unconventional click sound was the result. This sound was then fed with additional information, field recordings, that supported that original sound and put it into new and different contexts. The third step was the analysis of the total information. I tried to maintain a basic sound character in all three tracks and also put it into form by overlapping the basic sound with field recordings and, despite my strong conceptual approach, let arise a musical structure that connects three tracks.
