Venn Diagram - Hunab Ku (FILTER062)
Release date: May 28th, 2012
Genres: Electronica, Leftfield, Bass, Ambient
For fans of: Bill Laswell, The Orb, Brian Eno
ABOUT THE RELEASE
We have a brand new release and it is another cinematic masterpiece. Venn Diagram has been developing his skills through media work and applied music projects and the result is an album that has the depth of the best Bill Laswell productions crossed with the juicy ambience of The Orb. With extensively creative use of stereo field, Venn Diagram matches mood and tempo to create subconscious mini movies. The suspense of Logan's Run, the space station feel of Chiaroscuro, the eastern promise of Hunab Ku, and the resonant floating of Ezekiel's Trumpet, they all add up to a well-rounded and masterfully crafted album.
Your releases are going from strength to strength - great work - will get in reviews / newsletter - Marc Reck
Excellent electronic psychedelia, really love the layered sound - reminds me also of Future Sound of London! - Ogie
As a whole Hunab Ku is a treat for the ears; there's enough happening to keep you on your toes, but it's never overpowering, always pulling you in rather than pushing you away. - Tom Pritchard
Really enjoyed listening to this - some very interesting soundscapes and I love the attention to detail in every track - definitely a keeper! - Mark Allsworth, Duane Barry / Innuendo
Hey, thanks for the Venn Diagram promo! - Tiit Kusnets, Klassikaraadio
Clever stuff, but a bit off-the-wall for me! - Bob Kickflip
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Venn Diagram draws on many and varied influences from the jazz stylings of Miles Davis, to the ambient explorations of Brian Eno and sonic vistas of early Warp Records and Artificial Intelligence releases.
More music for the mind than for the feet, his art is an exploration of sound and a homage to the pioneers of technological soul that have forged an ever changing musical blueprint for the modern world.
Everything from musique concrete to modern classical structures, environmental ambience and the modernism of splice and dice culture serve as inspiration for a sonic pallet that is as diverse and varied as the global internet driven world we live in.
From Reich to Stockhausen, Cage, Eno, Kraftwerk and the experimental jazz styling’s of Arve Henriksen, the mash-up counter culture of underground modern futurists and noise experimentalists like Jan Bang and Christian Fennesz serve as fertile ground for inspiration.
Venn Diagram explores not only “the art of noise” but the intricate patterns found in seemingly random chaos and the rich alchemy that can be found in the history of human musical evolution.
