It's hard to describe the mixture on this release, ranging from sharp edges and spiky needles over playing kids and cornflakes to candyfloss, stormclouds and holey skyscraper storefronts. For us, "Music Under Pin " is the result of euphony research within an area between white noise and pop.
The raw material for "echoes of bcn" was captured in Barcelona by Benjamin Brunn with his minidisc recorder only. The other three tracks ("raval cat", "dot obsession" and "developers developers") were crafted in the usual manner, from a single nord modular patch; the nord modular is his only instrument. Limiting his range of sounds lets Benjamin focus his attention on the smallest bits, leading to the best result: "get the most out of it".
When the product of this work flow gets released on vinyl along the mixes by artists like Move D and Scanner, it leads to something like "music under pin": music that carries itself and each other.
