The Mouse On Mars producer will release a new solo album in June.
Jan St. Werner, AKA one half of Mouse On Mars, will release a new solo album in June.
Blaze Colour Burn will see release through the long-running Thrill Jockey imprint. It's the first in a new series called Fiepblatter, which the label says "will encompass electro-acoustic experimentation, algorithmic elements, scored music, digital signal processing, field recordings, improvisation, public performance and graphic works."
The album promises to be typically ambitious in scale: "Spiazzacorale," which has been divided into two parts, was trimmed down from an eight-hour live performance in Umbria, Italy. That piece alone apparently features a flute orchestra, a traditional Umbrian band and a vibraphonist. For an idea of what to expect from Blaze Colour Burn, you can listen to "Feed Opener" over on the Thrill Jockey SoundCloud page. To gain further insight into St. Werner's studio methods, check out our recent Machine Love piece with Mouse On Mars.
