Pressing The Pause-Button of Life

Der umtriebige Laridae Labelgründer Herwig Holzmann präsentiert sein neues Listening Album auf Autoplate.

Herwig describes his method of making music as “musical storytelling“ – soundtracks for nonexistent movies. He wants listeners to create their own stories and images in their minds as they listen to what he describes as his pieces of “audio fiction.“ Most often when he creates a new track he begins with a hazy idea of the mood that he wants to establish and then instinctively generates sounds and rhythms that converge on that idea. The titles of the tracks, the artwork, and any samples used are as integral to his albums as the music itself. It‘s this network of ideas, sounds, and other parameters that he attaches to an album that allows its listeners to create his/her own mental picture (such as a story, a film, a painting, etc.) by association. As Herwig puts it: “My albums are intended as balanced dramaturgical stories, the tracks are the chapters.“ His approach to ambient is akin to that of Console‘s “Mono“ album or artists of the likes of Biosphere similar in style to the“ Scandinavian“ approach of smooth ambiance and sounds full of warmth and crackle.
