A couple of weeks ago Robot Koch announced his EP release “Sphere Outtakes”with one of the song ‘Another World’ receiving airplay on the latest Chill episode (Chill #54).. Released today April 26, 2019, he discusses the details behind the EP.
According to the press release, its designed as the soundtrack to an audio visual live show and conceived in collaboration with the artist Mickael Le Goff, the project is a musical exploration of space and will be exhibited in planetariums and full dome venues across Europe and North America starting at MUTEK San Francisco on May 2nd.
“I wanted to do something entirely new and different, move out of my comfort zone. I‘ve been playing in clubs for more than ten years and the idea of doing something in a planetarium has been in my head for a while. I just loved the idea of it being totally immersive; it lies somewhere between a 3D movie and a concert,” Koch explains.
With “Sphere Outtakes”, Koch delves into dark pockets that separate stars, sounds, and ultimately feelings: “The space around things, the nothingness of space, fascinates me and I seek that space in my work too, the right amount of reverb around a sound, making it small and intimate or epic and far away is something I play with a lot.” he adds.
BBC’s Bobby Friction described it perfectly; “it sounds like artificial intelligence discovering religion.”
