Prologue presents three new tracks from the Berlin based Cassegrain. This new EP draws in the focus as we see the duo further finesse their sonic language of complex tribal percussion and intense acidic elements. In anticipation of Cassegrain’s debut full-length due in autumn 2014, this next chapter of tracks – not taken from the LP, but acting as a sound manifesto of sorts – highlights their ongoing explorations.
When you close your eyes and stare into nothingness, that private virtual space, what does your brain see? Shimmering cells dancing in the void, clouds in your consciousness, the particle elements of a distant past – blood distributed as pure colour.
Cassegrain invite us to spark a connection with the ancients lying dormant within. Across three intense tribal studies, exploring fine potions of voodoo acids and hypnotic extra-sensory sonics, we are transported to places far and exotic. Up the winding rivers, into the jungle landscapes of our ancestors, where rhythm is sacred and blood is power.
Cassegrain originated via a chance meeting at the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona. The Berlin based duo, now well established in the sphere of electronic music, has found a home in Prologue Music after having several releases with the label including the highly acclaimed double 12″ «Tiamat». They have also appeared on Modal Analysis, M_Rec Ltd and Semantica while their ongoing collaboration with Tin Man is released through Berlin based Killekill.
Cassegrain have become known for their intricate, hardware based live sets which they have performed worldwide, from Berlin’s Berghain, Barcelona’s Sonar Festival to Tokyo and Taipei. 2014 will be a big year for the pair; they have been busy in the role of remixers, as well as getting the treatment themselves. «Tiamat Remixes» will be released in May, followed by their new EP «Blood Distributed as Pure Colour». This will be a new chapter for Cassegrain and will act as a sound manifesto of sorts for their debut album coming in Autumn.
