This is the first of two EPs that we’re happy to publish from Dominik Vogel. Like so many great artists, Dominik makes little fuss about the creation of his tracks: “It was recorded in one night in one go with my modular system and is therefore not reproducible.”
As charming as this understatement may be, it raises more questions than it answers. How many years did it take to study its modules to record three such tracks in one night? How many live performances had Dominik to do, to develop such a wonderful feeling for the tension in the arrangement? How many efforts and failed attempts did it take before everything came together so wonderfully in one night? And how can the tracks come along so easily nonchalant without sounding arbitrary?
