Modul on LP

Automat - Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Haut), Achim Färber (Phillip Boa & The Voodooclub, Skip McDonald), and Georg Zeitblom (wittmannzeitblom) - operates like a well-oiled machine: it buzzes, it whirrs, it follows an unswerving course. Together with modular magician Max Loderbauer and Paul St. Hilaire, aka Tikiman, Lydia Lunch, and Mika Bajinski on vocal duties, they now present Modul their most varied and consistent album to date, on Compost Records. On their fourth album, the trio shifts down a gear, further refines it's musical approach and partners with other figures from the world of adventurous music. The eight pieces on Modul were written collectively based on a building block system that dynamically set the compositional process in motion and evenly divided responsibility between all participants. The result is a musical perpetuum mobile - an album with the steady resting pulse of a dub production that always stays on the move. As an album, »Modul« captures a continuous process of transformation that was first to be experienced in the year 2018, when Automat presented an earlier version at the Pop-Kultur festival as part of a commissioned work. Having been invited by the curatorial team, Zeitblom, Färber, and Arbeit together with their guests St. Hilaire, Lunch, and Gemma Ray created a live set that was resolutely developed in the studio on the basis of single modular elements that were (re-)combined according to the principle of a resonance module: it's a to-and-fro between the individual members, structures morph and the sound incessantly takes on different shapes.
