Live At Honen-In Temple will be released in May on Macro.
Stefan Goldmann will release a new live album in May called Live At Honen-In Temple.
As the name implies, Live At Honen-In Temple is a recording of the Berlin-based producer's one-off performance last year at Honen-In Temple in Kyoto, Japan. According to a press release, only a handful of listeners were present at the concert, which took place "while daylight faded into the dark of night".
Goldmann's output over the years has certainly included plenty of house and techno-oriented material (for labels like Classic, Ovum and Perlon), but he's also shown a penchant for avant-garde experimentation, as heard on many of his prior LPs. It's perhaps unsurprising then, especially given the setting, that Live At Honen-In Temple sees him veer far from the dance floor to focus on abstract (and often beat-less) soundscapes. The album, heavy on unreleased material, will come out on CD and in digital formats through Macro, the label Goldmann runs alongside Finn Johannsen.
