Dark Fader, established in 2009, is a duo formed by Roald Baudoux and Peer Baierlein which focuses on a sensitive approach to live electronic music. They create a sound which is extremely distinct and has very notable characteristics. From crisp granular impacts to fluid textures, from urban soundscapes to abstract sequences, from fleeting moments to developed structures, everything is smoothly balanced in order to create a perfect musical entity. With roots in acousmatic music, jazz, free improvisation and sound art, the two establish their own genre. Dark Fader pays attention not to deliver automated compositions but rather aims to play with attention, creating an organic connection between gestures and processed recordings. The design and interplay between controllers, interactive software and its programming become a part of the compositional process. The introduction of multiple modulation layers turns the listeners into partners in an unrepeatable creative process.
