about

In the end of 2018, I was commissioned by Sebastian Gansrigler, the creative mind behind the ZEN mobile game and 'Die Letzt Kupferdrucker' (a short documentary film about Europe's last copper printer in Vienna), to provide musical score, sound effects and transitional sound material for a series of advertising campaign videos that would introduce his boutique photography magazine Auslöser. Having previously provided scoring work for both ZEN (whose soundtrack resides here at RP) and 'Kupferdrucker', I was elated to work with Sebastian once again on another new and entirely different project.

Auslöser is a beautifully minimalist photography magazine that is printed in Austria biannually. It can be purchased in over 50 carefully selected galleries, museum shops, magazine- and bookstores worldwide from Vienna to Russia, from Portugal to China, and as a single edition and subscription direct from Auslöser's website. Furthermore, you can find every issue at many universities and in libraries from Zurich to Amsterdam.

Musically, the sounds presented here are almost entirely sketches and palette-tests that would serve as liminal progress markers toward what ended up being refined and utilized in Auslöser marketing actions. Many of the recordings are completely informal and are presented here less as 'music' in a composed sense, and more as an interesting insight into my scoring process, patchmaking and perhaps even as a document of one of the more unique commissions that have come my way. Everything was created using a Korg Minilogue polyphonic analog synthesizer, except the 'Tanzmix' which was built alongside samplers, drum machines and overdubs using the Minilogue in different patch configurations, to provide a "single" for this otherwise noncommercial album...although it is somewhat ironic that music drafted for actual commercial use ends up presented more as library music than anything you'd typically find in modern advertising otherwise.

Auslöser Kunststoffe, or "Shutter Button Plastics", would likely appeal to fans of my Eufloria or ZEN soundtrack recordings, as well as Milieu albums like Improvisations For Hylian Piano & Woodwinds (also recorded using the same polysynth), Daughter or Quebrith & Yarrow.
