LA-based producer Robot Koch recently announced a new album to be released April 24, 2020 titled “The Next Billion Years”, available from the newly created Modern Recordings. The German-born artist debuted it from via serialgk.com late January. Click on the link to read about Jacques Yves Cousteau and how the new release was inspired by the French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water.
From the article, he bought a two-dollar tape to record his own material over it. “What you seek is seeking you,” says Robot quoting the Sufi mystic and poet Rumi. As Robot would find out later that evening, the cassette wasn’t blank – it contained a mysterious recording of a lecture by the late Jacques-Yves Cousteau. “It’s pure magic. I found something I didn’t consciously know I was looking for,” he adds.
The last we heard from Robot Koch, part of a group of producers who pioneered the vision of electronic music at the turn of the last decade, was during his release of “Spheres” in 2018, a project not only a musical exploration of space, but also an
observable voyage through outer space made especially to be exhibited in planetariums and full-dome venues.
