When »Erster Teil - Zweiter Teil - Dritter Teil« was recorded at the Vox-Ton Studio in Berlin, early 2015, Roman Hagenbrock aka i am just a video girl brought his cameras and filmed the Serenus Zeitblom Oktett being recorded.
The resulting album long video that Hyperdelia is releasing alongside the LP is a poetic imagination of the recoding process as an outer space travel, in which the control room is preparing the musicians for take off.
Though it seems as if the music is not really controlled by the musicians any longer, rather by some estranged hands, by control panels, by machinery and cables and knobs. Instruments play themselves and become autonomous agents.
The images and sounds Hagenbrock layers are arbitrary and deploy a very own aesthetics of the acousmatic. Thus adding yet another layer of abstraction to the LP, which in itself is already dis/connected from the intitially recorded sounds.
Hagenbrock poetically embraces these moments of technicised abstraction and lets every cable, every blinking light and every sound signal have its own space of unfolding. If it weren’t for the all-encompassing tentacles of the control room.
