TRICEPHALUS

In December 2019/January 2020 hackedepicciotto were invited to a sound residency in Cork/ Ireland.
For their residency at the “Guesthouse" they decided to collaborate with the inimitable Irish sound-artist Mick O’Shea and organized weekly improv sessions of exactly 60 minutes. This recording is the session which they think best. It is a three-headed beast and sounds like the film score to a futuristic, apocalyptic landscape painted by Cormac McCarthy in his deadliest moments.

hackedepicciotto- The Current

Album release 31.1.2020

“The Current” is the fourth album hackedepicciotto have recorded since becoming nomads in 2010. It is their most powerful album yet. After composing desert drones for their previous album “Perseverantia “ and dark foreboding melodies for “Menetekel”, their new album moves forwards, gaining in speed and energy. Alexander Hackes background with Einstürzende Neubauten can be felt in the many rhythmic tracks.  “We had the urge to include more percussive elements and electronic sounds to create a powerful rhythmic feel. A wilder and more danceable element. Something to get all of us on our feet, and moving. Away from depression and hopelessness.” The classic background of Danielle de Picciotto has become more prominent as well.  Glorious choirs and violin harmonies flow throughout the album giving it an almost symphonic sound.

The artist couple calls their music “cinematic-drone” and their album sounds like the film track to an apocalyptic feature-length film, hopefully with a happy end.

GERMAN

"The Current" ist das vierte Album, das hackedepicciotto seit Ihrem Entschluss im Jahr 2010 Nomaden zu werden aufgenommen hat. Es ist das bisher kraftvollste Album. Nachdem sie für ihre früheren Alben „Perseverantia“ und „Menetekel“ langsame und schwere Drones komponiert haben, bewegt sich ihr neues Album schneller und energischer. Alexander Hackes Verbindung zu den Einstürzenden Neubauten ist in vielen rhythmischen Tracks zu spüren. „Wir hatten das Bedürfnis, percussive Elemente und ungewöhnliche elektronische Klänge einzubeziehen, um einen starken Energiefluss zu erzeugen.“ Der klassische Hintergrund von Danielle de Picciotto ist ebenfalls prominenter geworden. Glorreiche Chöre und Violinen Harmonien fließen durch das Album und verleihen ihm einen fast symphonischen Klang.

 Das Künstlerpaar nennt seine Musik "cinematic-drone" und Ihr Album klingt wie der Filmtrack eines apokalyptischen Spielfilms der hoffentlich ein glückliches Ende hat.

Das Album ist sowohl über neubauten.org als auch über https://hackedepicciotto.bandcamp.com zu beziehen.
