Interview and details here 

Artwork by FANTASTIC LANDS

"There is little know about the artistic persona of Stefan Blomeier. His recent music release Popular Electronics II / Radio Astronomy Research Laboratory Of Electronic Progress has given his persona somewhat of a minor cult status and only increased the flow of rumours around the artist behind it.
In the run-up to the Netaudio commission for new works, a close associate of Stefan has released the following statement:
Early morning. Alone in the centre of an empty Aalborg traffic island, Stefan Blomeier listens to the cars in the distance. He hopes their humming might crowd out his past, smoothing over the angry dissonance. Far too much is at stake here. At moments like these, his memories are all cartoons and his achievements all computer games, and yet it is beautiful. Stefan Blomeier has never felt more alive than he does at this split-second pause-button image-capture video-tape freeze-frame."

Experimentations in the steps of the pioneers of the "France electronique". From Jarre to GRM projects


"A brief biography. Self-taught musician having plunged in the electronic music at the age of 17, back in 1977. Having initially begun very modestly with Kawai 100-F resold for Korg MS-20, he since was interested in all the known forms of sound synthesis, in particular through the intensive and deepened use of software Plogue Bidule from Québec. Having acquired recently a Northern Clavia Modular G2, it is from now on with this extraordinary tool for research that it continues to explore the most moved back regions of sound creation." Panopticon

"Geometric games to reach a mesmerizing state of mind. Can you hear the signal ?"

"...Be prepared to be drowning in the ocean of cosmic signals and what they deliver. Vibrating drones smoothly and deliberately mantle consciousness. The sound is ambient and minimal. Cascades of geometric figures made of sound magma slowly approach through the vacuum. Almost physically palpable oscillations. Amazing..." Dumpster Diving Blog

Twins "Waiting" 

Press release :
"An unknown future lies on THE OTHER SIDE OF time. Action is your power, the vehicle through which you can arrive there. If the present seems hopeless you must explore this other way, the only way out. No one else can help you, you will find it yourself. The out of time way is the way of peace of mind. Pave the present with a pass-way to a better future, the future that is out of time. In this zone your are another side of yourself. This is not to be feared. Engage all side of yourself to succeed on the other side : the future is the only "time to move on." " Matt Weiner
