Comment: Alexander Neumann is an artist
from Germany who has been very prolific over the last three decades.
I read at Discogs that he has been doing his music with old-school
equipment by employing an Amiga computer system with tracker programs
and in this way got established his own idiosyncratic timbre and
sound. For sure, by listening to this 3-track outing (being released
on Miga) you can perceive his charmingly dusty yet exuberant timbre.
The result is invigorating and profound in terms of iterative,
hypnotic rhythmic patterns, lofty and spaced-out synthesisers atop.
Frequently one can hear different progressions running at the same
time yet all of that results in coherent, enchanting tracks. All of
that seems to be deeply analysed and much work to have been done you
can guess an obsessive professor to be behind it by scraping scarce
vibes from the beaker within his alchemic ward. That's not funny, it
is a serious, mandatory stuff. You can find out many similarities
with the Detroit techno and electro scene but not only in terms of
sound and rhythms but also in that sense that this sort of sound is
definitely directed toward the future. Although Invierano was
issued 11 years ago but by listening to it at the moment I have to
admit it hums like a space rocket within my ears.
