Lumisokea certainly are a Berlin-based electronic duo (Koenraad Ecker and Andrea Taeggi) who all build dark, challenging atmospheres utilizing prepared pianos and other acoustic equipment, as well seeing that abrasive, mangled beats that often defy conventional rhythms. Their dub-inspired, bass-heavy parts occasionally resemble Autechre’s even more detached occasions, but with an increase of acoustic elements. In addition they incorporate a lot of field recordings, tape tests, and classic synthesizers to their function. The duo initial surfaced in 2011, launching Automatons on Dutch label Eat Cement, accompanied by Selva on a single label in 2012. In early 2014, Lumisokea released their most rhythmic discharge to time, Apophenia, on United kingdom experimental techno label Opal Tapes. The label also concurrently released a partner cassette entitled Contrapasso, that was even more ambient and experimental. The duo came back to Eat Cement the following summer months for an electronic EP entitled Eavesdropping on Pianists, which sampled percussion noises from Russian professional Vladimir Popov’s Sound Devices, designed in the 1920s. In 2015, the duo released a fresh album entitled Mnemosyne on Luke Younger’s Alter label. The record featured less of the emphasis on large bass textures than prior function, focusing even more on acoustic equipment such as for example gamelan bells and cello, aswell as improvisations documented on analog synths. Lumisokea came back to Opal Tapes in early 2016 with a fresh album entitled Transmissions from Revarsavr.
