DIRAC - PHON (CD)


"dirac refer to their output as 21st century chamber music. they use laptops in combination with various acoustic instruments, building up drone layers in their unique and precise manner with a focus on timbre, resonance and vibration. they create records based on the principle of direct recording: realtime composition, which the group mixes and edits afterwards, eventually adding some overdubs. their recordings are usually done over a longer period of time, within which dirac dedicate themselves solely to creating music and concentrated listening. phon, the group's third studio record, following their first self-titled album (ucover, 2007) and "emphasis" (spekk, 2009), consists only of one track, an uncut first take recording - 'performance time' and 'listening time' are equal to each other. the whole production was done by dirac themselves, from mixing to mastering to layouting. the postproduction, the additional brass-arrangement and the field-recording at the end of the track lift this record up to an astonishing monument of dirac's music and sound."
