Adern X

Liebe ist wärmer als der Zeit

XVR007 Cover

The perception of suspended time, while you see someone deserving your deepest feelings, is one of the main themes of this release as it’s deeply connected to the notion of time in- volved in the form of the tape loop. The other is the perception of space, related to the stereo channels, seen as way to express the dialectic between persons and an hint to perceive them. So, the stereo version of solaris features the stereo separation of the sinewaves and samples while the radio AM is located at center. Memories features the recording of old analogue tapes and their faults and similar structures apply to all tracks in some form.

The concept:

Seeing an image, along with the subject represented, there’s another layer that is the effect of what is evoked or implied as feelings or memories. The “mental image” is a way to express this concept: what is outside of an image.

The structure:

The audio and the video track features contrasts and resonances on a timbral or chromatic level. Various source material as pictures, video, written text, field recordings, samples. This is a way to represent the difference between a real image and a mental one.

The audio:

The audio track is called “a Mental Image of F” and is based upon an idea of a separation between the two stereo channels juxtaposed on a central development as a way to depict the difference between a perceived image and a real one.

The video:

The video is focused upon the dialectic between moving pictures and static ones obtained as long-time exposures to the first cut of the video. So the mental image is depicted as a sort of static image, or a memory, of what was moving.
