"Blaze Colour Burn is a new work from electronic music pioneer and innovator Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars, Lithops, Microstoria) inaugurating Fiepblatter, a series of genre-dismantling releases on Thrill Jockey that will encompass electro-acoustic experimentation, algorithmic elements, scored music, digital signal processing, field recordings, improvisation, public performance and graphic works. These pieces aren't just about sound, they're about location, structure, time, aesthetics. Stories that overlap and interact with each other. St Werner's cutting edge technical prowess and avant-garde strategies go hand in hand with a natural and unshakeable sense of lyricism and harmony, complexity comes not at the cost of beauty. But in the end this record, and the Fiepblatter series at large, has a more serious purpose: to deconstruct and deterritorialise the very idea of sound, to liberate it from such limiting categories as "popular" or "academic", and to instead explore its potential as a raw material, massaging it into structures that are unconventional, non-hierarchical and free."
