Android Lust - Berlin [Crater Vol.2]

$20,368

I’ve been thinking about how to approach Crater v.2 since v.1 came out. One thing was sure, I needed something new to inspire me. I’ve been experimenting with location recording for a while, and it's something I've wanted to delve deeper into. But it wasn’t until I was in Nepal earlier this year and recorded a group of monks chanting in Nagarkot that the idea really hit me — I needed to combine the experience of discovering new places, capturing sonic snapshots of that place and time, and base the record around that!

So now I want to go to a city that has become the center of my musical focus, Berlin. It spawned the Bowie-Eno trilogy which to this day remains among my biggest influences. And Einstürzende Neubauten, originally from West Berlin, who effortlessly transmute chaos into beauty - another huge influence. There’s a sense of history and fearless experimentation that has been calling to me.

This is the idea that has been inspiring me. I want to walk the streets of Berlin with my portable recorder and soak up the ambient sounds. I want to place my contact mics on the surface of historic structures and pick up their resonance. I want to bring all these sounds and experiences back with me to my studio and give you a new album.

This will be my 3rd release on Kickstarter and my 6th full length record. Thanks to those who have stuck with me so far and backed me, you have made it possible for 100% independent artists like me to keep making art.

Now it’s time to do another record and I am asking you to help me, again. I am really excited about this. Let’s make it happen!
