DARK~asian~ENERGY [singa~core album], 2014 – 2016

In autumn 2014 CLUBbleu went on a Singapore field recording trip trying to catch the most characteristic and unique urban sounds of the city. For 3 months the duo dived into the pulsating multi-cultural metropolis and returned to Frankfurt with a bunch of extraordinary Singaporean soundscapes to produce their upcoming CD:

CLUBbleu perceived Singapore as a city in which the social life is highly influenced by a clash of disparate cultures,  creating altogether a common, „transnational“, Singaporean character.  In connection to this CLUBbleu explore the interstices between these cultures from an external point of view, trying to research at the various points of contact in between. CLUBbleu  combine sounds of chinese markets, speaking doors and elevators, jungle soundscapes, indian temples, disordered mobile devices soundscapes, light rail transits, shopping mall sounds and the typical mixture-scapes of frogs, cicadas and car engines within the compositional creation of their DARK~asian~ENERGY [singa~core album]. CLUBbleu feed this delicate sound cocktail into Max/MSP patches that control interactive reacting electronic instruments.

The „DARK~asian~ENERGY [singa~core album]“ will be released in 2016 by Gruenrekorder.

DARK ENERGY [frankfurt album], 2013 – 2014

For their “DARK ENERGY [frankfurt album]“ CLUBbleu developed a special method for recycling urban soundscapes into musical sound material. The sound spectrum of the city Frankfurt am Main as a symbiosis of engine noises and domesticated nature turns into a fundamental element of compositional structure.

For over one year CLUBbleu recorded various public spaces in Frankfurt focussing on so-called non-places. During their explorations concerning the musical quality of public spaces they observed a striking imbalance of auditory and visual impressions. Associated with this, CLUBbleu question whether urban spaces – originally designed as local recreation areas – over time change into acoustic non-places.

CLUBbleu created a unique „sound of frankfurt“, based on polymorphic rhythm structures of sound waves reflecting between skyscrapers, sounds of circular saws and hammer blows spreading over the town, Europe’s largest building demolition to date and underwater recordings of the river Main. Especially the river works as a sort of natural band-pass-filter, that releases certain frequencies of the urban soundscapes, which are combined with sounds of ship’s propellers and flow generated noise. The recontextualization of non-place sounds is part of CLUBbleu ’s recycling process as well as the collection of sound material, its synthetic modulation and its integration into their compositional approach.

DARK ENERGY [munich album] /

DARK ENERGY [augsburg album], 2013

CLUBbleu ’s first CD production, the „DARK ENERGY [munich album]“ was released after the premiere in July 2013 @ Signalraum in Munich. First of all, inspired by apocalyptic horror movies and series just like 28 Days Later or The Walking Dead, CLUBbleu focussed on places that are considered as so called Non-Places, as Marc Augé describes them in his „Introduction to Supermodernity“. They were searching for places in public space that are either abandoned nowadays but seem to be highly frequented in the past, today’s „forgotten“ places of civilization, or places that look abandoned because they are designed to function without any need of communication with human beings, equipped with automats and computers. All in all places that look ugly, dark, unpleasant. It was quite a challenge to find these places in a city like Munich, clean, friendly and so … bavarian, which is – to be honest – more a mutated village than a big city. But with a bit of patience CLUBbleu managed to scrape out Munich’s dark energy. Civilization leaves its traces everywhere…

At the invitation of lab.30 Medienkunst Festival Augsburg they released a „DARK ENERGY [augsburg album]“ in October 2013.
