Jerry Spoon & starfrosch will release their melodic techno album “Absorbed” August 24th, 2019.
During the last six month Jerry Spoon & starfrosch are working together with various musicans on their new album. Jerry Spoon met starfrosch at Les Digitales, the festival for electronic and experimental music on various locations in Switzerland. Five month after that meeting, they produced their first track “Kalte Ohren”. Jerry Spoon & starfrosch realized, they want to create an album together.
The concept melts the international community around starfrosch with the local bernese community around Jerry Spoons mix and master Studio Voisier.
First they initiated a remix contest on the globaly networked remix community ccMixter.org. The result after only 14 days was exciting. Artists contributed 14 inspiring remixes from all around the world. Jerry Spoon & starfrosch selected one remix from Disfunction_AL (Rome, Italy) to appear on the album. You can hear to selected remixes on the “Kalte Ohren Remix” album.
At the same time Jerry Spoon asked his local community to contribute remixes. There will be at least 2 more remixes from Bern, Switzerland. Maybe there are some more suprises, hopefully all can copy with the deadline.
During the last 6 month they have worked on 15 melodic techno tracks with guest musicians Chrigu (Piano), Darja (Vocals), Skupin (Vocals) and Irina (Vocals). Six tracks and three to four remixes will appear on their album “Absorbed”.
“We’re glad to have the opportunity to work together with Switzerlands award winning photographer Florian Spring” says Jerry Spoon “he transformed our vision of “Absorbed” into press and album cover pictures.” All the pictures have been taken at former PTTs high-tech anechoic and echoic rooms. They have been used for decades to build precise acoustic machines. Now they served as perfect background to illustrate Jerry Spoon & starfroschs album “Absorbed”.
During the creation process of the album, they have been absorbed. “Music helps us to fall into a deep state of meditation and keeps us in a constant flow. While we are more and more distracted by short messages and constant attention seeking notifications by nudge product and software design, the more we need to focus and get absorbed. Absorbed in thought, musing to find inner peace.” says starfrosch “We’re sunken and absorbed by thoughts and music.”
