A calendar of imperfections.

In late 2017, I dusted off my hardware setup and started making a few pieces with it again (now released with last year's "winter collection"), which was a lot of fun and made me want to try making a full length project with it.
During my other projects throughout the year, I started recording these pieces, first rather aimlessly, later with more thoughts about concept. They're all live-sessions, usually made in one sitting and one take, mostly hard to replicate. My methods and approaches changed quite a bit over time, the first pieces were recorded to a Zoom R16, the second half through a hardware mixer onto a single track in Ableton.
Some pieces have some overdubs, some don't; some are purely electronic, others feature some guitar or other instruments.
All of them are very raw and I was torn whether I should actually release this for quite a while, it has a lot of rough edges: there's clipping, bad soloing and the form feels incomplete with some months missing. But all of these points make this very electronic album human in a way, something I often try to find in electronic music anyway. I can't say I'm completely content putting out music that isn't always as good as it could be, but this humanity still somewhat appeals to me.
Thank you for listening!
