Jerry Spoon & starfrosch will release their melodic techno album “Absorbed” August 24th, 2019.

It begins

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.

Glocal

The concept melts the international community around starfrosch with the local bernese community around Jerry Spoons mix and master Studio Voisier.

Community

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.

The remixes

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.

Creating

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”.

The vision

“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”.

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.”

Cold ears, hot ears.

First of all I’d like to thank ccMixter and all participants to be part of the Cold Ears remix contest. It was a great pleasure to listen to all those creative works from all around the world. We didn’t expect such a good feedback and are very thankful for all remixes.

Finally we had to chose a winner. We have chosen Dysfunction_ALs remix with vocals from mindmapthat aka Kara Square. It’s a creative blend that takes our track Kalte Ohren to a new level. It’s fresh, exciting also on repeat and we like the production quality. We are very happy to include it on our upcoming album in 2019 with the working title “Neo-Hippie”.

Dysfunction_AL – Kalte Ohren (Remix feat. Jerry Spoon, starfrosch, Kara Square)

Very nice. Quite a lot of twists. It begins with a few big beats and psy approaches, and then ends as a successful hard trance number. Yes, well done.
