Chitran A dark shower brushes your soul from a strange, unreal, digitally created, ice-cold world. The mercilessly controlling entity knows no compassion and rules with relentless, icy severity. There is still an increase in sterility and perfectionism, nothing is left to chance, everything follows a repetitive, machine-like automated, completely controlled pattern. The belief in God leaves this world definitively – forever. A totally convincing, dark, dystopian masterpiece.
Favorite track: Describe Reality.

about

My debut album "Sex With The Machines" was released in the second half of the year 1997 on vinyl.
Back then this record was distributed by the infamous and Frankfurt Main based company Neuton Distribution.

The production time for SWTM was one and a half year.
I started with the composing in the year 1996.
At this time I had already released two techno experimental records on the label Kanzleramt under the pseudonym "PSI Performer".

Back than my regular day job was warehouse worker at Neuton. At night I was producing tracks in my tiny home studio and dreaming about a career as a musician.

The equipment in my home studio were a Behringer MX8000 mixing desk, a Roland JD-800 Synthesizer, a Ensoniq ASR-10 Sampler, a Ensoniq DP4/+ effect unit, a Pentium 286 PC with the software sequencer Cubase for Windows 3.0.

I was still in search of me as an artist and that brought me to follow my deepest inner feelings and to compose electro.

The production of SWTM opened for me for the first time the door to a deeper creativity that I never had experienced before.

Never before did I drifted into a shifting between reality and fantasy. It became so real that it was sometimes a bit scary.

During the production phase I dreamed about the album and than I took these dreams as a base to write new tracks for SWTM.
I became a day dreamer and till today that's what I am experiencing during the production of my music.


+++DEUTSCH+++

Mein Debütalbum "Sex With The Machines" wurde in der zweiten Jahreshälfte 1997 auf Vinyl veröffentlicht.
Damals wurde diese Platte von der berüchtigten und in Frankfurt Main ansässigen Firma Neuton Distribution vertrieben.

Die Produktionszeit für SWTM betrug eineinhalb Jahre.
Ich habe mit dem Komponieren im Jahr 1996 begonnen.
Zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte ich bereits zwei Techno-Experimental-Platten auf dem Label Kanzleramt unter dem Pseudonym "PSI Performer" veröffentlicht.

Damals war ich Lagerarbeiter bei Neuton. Nachts produzierte ich Tracks in meinem winzigen Heimstudio und träumte von einer Karriere als Musiker.

Die Ausrüstung in meinem Heimstudio war ein Behringer MX8000-Mischpult, ein Roland JD-800-Synthesizer, ein Ensoniq ASR-10-Sampler, ein Ensoniq DP4 / + -Effektgerät, ein Pentium 286-PC mit dem Software-Sequenzer Cubase für Windows 3.0.

Ich war immer noch auf der Suche nach mir als Künstler und das brachte mich dazu, meinen tiefsten inneren Gefühlen zu folgen und Elektro zu komponieren.

Die Produktion von SWTM öffnete mir zum ersten Mal die Tür zu einer tieferen Kreativität, die ich noch nie zuvor erlebt hatte.

Nie zuvor bin ich in einen Wechsel zwischen Realität und Fantasie geraten.
Es wurde so real, dass es manchmal ein bisschen beängstigend war.

Während der Produktionsphase habe ich von dem Album geträumt und dann diese Träume als Basis genommen, um neue Tracks für SWTM zu schreiben.

Ich wurde ein Tagträumer und bis heute erlebe ich das während der Produktion meiner Musik.

Diese kreative Tür ist immer offen und ich kann dort rein und raus gehen. Dafür bin ich sehr dankbar.
