I’d like to present you my new EP: „Not Enough Tracks For An Album EP“ I’ve titled it this way because there weren’t enough new tracks for an album.
This EP contains four new tracks. Style: Techno, sometimes more and sometimes less experimental. You can find all four tracks on Soundcloud. The EP will be released at Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Prime, Google Play,… on July 1st. I hope you like it!
And here are the stories behind the tracks:
I’ve often thought about building a setup in Ableton Live that writes it’s own track. Something you can switch on and which evolves and changes without even one note played by a human. „Complex Heaven“ was another try - but it failed. The reason why it failed was - me. The longer I worked on this track, the more „normal“ things like a 4/4-drum-beat or a melody I added. At some points you can still hear some of the automated elements from the early versions of this track, but after all it ended up like a nice techno-track with some not so normal sounds. I really like the result - even it is not what I thought it should be when I started working on it.
Yes, this was the next attempt on building a self-writing-track - that’s where the name comes from. And again - I failed. It was the same problem as with „Complex Heaven“: At some point - I don’t know how - there was a melody in this track. But there are more „randomized“ elements in „Try Again“ as in „Complex Heaven“, which you can hear in every second in this track. I love the dark, bright sounds and the „Blade Runner On Acid“-mood of this track.
The Mother Of All Bombs
The idea behind this track was: Take the noise from the end of „Try Again“ and build a complete new track around it. Shortly after I started working on this track, which had the working title „Noise“ at this time, I’ve read the news about the US dropping „The Mother of all bombs“, which really shocked me. That’s why this track now is called „The Mother Of All Bombs“ and why it sounds so rough, noisy and disturbing. It’s some kind of acoustic diary entry. We live in strange times and I wanted to say it with this strange track. Fun fact: I kicked the noise from the end of „Try Again“ out of this track and replaced it with a synth, because the processed „Try Again“-end-noise sounded too strange. Fun fact 2: Most of this track (except the piano and one pad-sound in the second half) is completely automated. You can play the project-file of this song for hours and will never sound the same.

This is the track with the longest title I’ve ever wrote. The working-title was „Arena“ - just because I’ve passed a hotel called „Arena“ when it came to the point where I needed a name for the file. But after listening to the final track (which I wrote in two hours - for me an unbelievable short time as I normally need several days for a track), I thought it could be a nice track for a movie-soundtrack and for this specific story. So I used it as the title of this track. And the reason why I wrote this track the way I wrote it was that I wanted this EP to end with something light and positive and not with the dark and noisy sounds of „The Mother Of All Bombs“.
Some words about me: Lagomorpha, Electronic Music Artist from Germany and winner of the Vox Pop Poll at the 13th Independent Music Awards in the category „Electronica/Dance Album“. I’m working on my fifth album - since 2014. Maybe it will be finished this year. Or there will be another EP. We’ll see.
Thanks for reading / listening!
