stephan mathieu & david sylvian - Wandermüde
A decade since the original was conceived, Stephen Mathieu renders instrumental source material from David Sylvian's seminal 'Blemish' LP into the free-floating, trans-dimensional spaces of 'Wandermüde'. Intended as an ambient score to a display of Sylvian's photography, Mathieu's diffuses the drones and guitar parts of 'Blemish' into gaseous harmonics and sensurreal spatial simulations, removing those stark, nerve-ringing vocals but somehow leaving vapourous traces of Sylvian's melancholic personality within the room(s), as he explains: "my work with computers is always live... i'm feeding selected material into a software process and record the output, which I either take as is, or discard completely. I don't multitrack, edit or re-arrange, i'm interested in self-evolving sound with all its rough and sometimes fault qualities. I never use effects like artificial reverb in my music, so what you hear is rather a piling up of spaces that surround the individual inputs used for me processes." Dispersed into the digital ether, the material on 'Wandermüde' takes form as an infinitely miasmic and terrifically beautiful soundworld, a reflective hall of mirrors where everything is heard glinting a millions times in a constellation of itself, an enveloping bed of starry light and black holes culminating with the cameo appearance of Christian Fennesz in the exquisite, chimeric ambient pop of 'Deceleration'.
