According to the duo, Synthwaves ‘pays homage to the masters of the past….Crisp, interlocking patterns are modulated and mutated with mathematical precision into eight pieces of pristine, post-kosmische sounds to float away to.’
Quaeschning and Schnauss spent two weeks in Berlin, in a studio full of vintage synthesizers, analog sequencers and drum machines, creating an album of pure electronic music.
Here’s what they have to say about the new album:
As with the finest Tangerine Dream soundtracks, it’s the kind of music that paints vivid pictures on the canvas of the listeners mind: synth plucks hang in the air like glaring neon in metropolitan dusk, and zero-gravity pads hover like ghostly morning mist traveling over empty coastlines.
Poly-rhythmic patterns are allowed to build – slowly but steadily – bar after bar, until synth-Satori is reached. By the time the last track on this album runs out, it’s obvious these two producers have themselves become masters of their craft.
Here’s a preview of the new album, Rain On Dry Concrete:
Quaeschning & Schnauss’s new album Synthwaves is available to order now via Bandcamp. There’s a limited vinyl bundle available, featuring an exclusive 10″ EP (contains two tracks, 13 minutes in total) limited to 100 copies.
