*2024 stock* Edition DUR releases the new album "Umdrehen" by Thomas Fehlmann exclusively on vinyl. On "Umdrehen" he uses exclusively self-produced samples constructed with plug-in machines integrated in Ableton. He speaks of generative music in which chance plays a major role. It is important that a piece is not always processed further, but left unpolished.
And there are 12 of them, stretching over two LP sides and forming new sound combinations into a breathtaking experience. With "Umdrehen", Thomas Fehlmann presents music that lets you linger in the moment, but not in order to find yourself contemplatively, as is the case with many ambient releases, but rather as an activation for an individually enlightening journey of discovery.
He has freed himself from the functional demands on his music and has arrived in a mode of letting go. This is impressively documented on "Umdrehen". And that's why the album should be turned over and over again until every last sonic corner, of which there are many, has been heard.
