Esoteric Tone Poem Pt. Even in Denmark nobody knows it. I did most of my bike-riding and tree-climbing there and since then I have been living all over Denmark. I have always liked instrumental music, here amongst the instrumental aspect of hip-hop. So beat-making seemed like the natural choice for me. I started out with turntables in and in I bought my first sampler.
Between those years i tried with different software but that never worked out for me. I always encountered technical problems Interlude - Mumledyr - Et Fjernt Fyrtaarn the computer or the software which drained my energy.
So hardware was definitely the right choice for me. I always try to get a beat done while the idea is fresh, if it takes too long the result will often be poor.
But I like making the music based on a concept of some kind. My first sampler was the mpc, I bought that one in Since then I have acquired a sp and a sp My favorite is the mpc because of the usability, but the sound of the sp is fantastic.
We tried to put our focus on the drums and the general atmosphere, which you describe as dark and sinister I guess. Actually not that different from what we do individually. We connected through myspace a few years ago, i think the first ideas emerged around the time Empire Guilt was released. Last summer I visited Marcin Idepthz in Poland and we agreed on how to release it and so forth. We did our parts seperately, but inspired by each others sounds. I started out making a beat inspired by one of his older tracks, sent that one to him and he made a continuation of the beat.
We made a few tracks like that and selected our 2 favorites for the 7 inch. A tone poem is an arrangement of sounds which evokes a certain atmosphere or mood. I sent him the music and he came up with some different sketches. As far as i know he painted it on canvas, took af photo of it and processed it from there.
The artwork on my previous releases was Interlude - Mumledyr - Et Fjernt Fyrtaarn made by him, he seems to have a remarkable ability to match the atmosphere of the music every time. Hope to have it out sometime in the fall. Are you still into climbing trees and bike-riding? Besides that I work as a physical therapist. Thanks to Pavel for the amazing artwork, Etienne at Vulgar for helping out with basically everything and thanks to Simon and Tim for helping out with distribution in Berlin and Dublin.
Vulgar Records Son of a Bricklayer myspace Idepthz myspace. Features Videos New Music Shop. Danish producer Son of a Bricklayer recently dropped an interesting 7-inch called Esoteric Tone Poem with collaborator Idepthz. Because of the strange artwork, haunting passages and ill-lighted, bit-smashed samples, perhaps this would make a good film Believe In Love - Diversiti - Diversiti for something like a Cronenberg film.
Each side is dynamic Interlude - Mumledyr - Et Fjernt Fyrtaarn intriguing with more than few cool change-ups to keep you interested. Thanks to Vulgar recordsthis 7-inch and other awesome releases is a documentation of the more obscure side of sample-based music.
