German multi-instrumentalist and producer, The
Micronaut has made a name for himself through
his richly textured and enthusiastic compositions.
His 2016 album, “Forms” has been described as a
true melting pot of sounds and it caught the
attention of the electronic music scene with its very
playful and original amalgamation of rhythms and
samples. This year, The Micronaut releases
Summer Games – an album which continues to
draw on his elaborate production style and is
coincided to be released with the Tokyo Olympic
Games.
Summer Games’ tracks are named after Olympic
sports - pole vault, archery and swimming are just
some examples of the 12 modalities chosen by the
artist. “For this album I chose Olympia as theme,
because apart from competition, it's also about a
movement of peace, where the focus is on people,
no matter what nation. The Summer Games are
coming now, the Winter Games will follow,” says
the producer. In the spirit of games, the music is
generally high-spirited and upbeat, with many
tracks being perfectly fitted for the dance floor. The
compositions move from broken bass rhythms to
catchy melodies to vocal samples and guitars in
just a few bars, making the overall listening experience seem like a fantastic rollercoaster ride,
“I would always describe my music as very lively,
expressive, dramatic, sometimes calm, sometimes
powerful,” says The Micronaut, “I think it is music
that fires the imagination.”
The ride is eclectic, but far from chaotic; transitions
are fluid, the momentum uninterrupted and the
direction cohesive. Behind the music’s energetic
flow are sophisticated arrangements and quasiscientific
constructions which crush stylistic
boundaries and give birth to a new collage-based
genre of music. The music is all the more
impressive considering that every sound contained
therein is crafted by The Micronaut himself, who
has been called a one-man-orchestra for exactly
that reason. At times, Summer Games veers
towards electro-pop, at other times it is inspired by
old-school hip-hop, and at other times still, it
climaxes and explodes in IDM, but through all the
commotion what is clear is that The Micronaut is an
avid music lover, collecting ideas and inspirations
far and wide, and translating them through his own
prism of emotions, “Music must always be a
journey, with ups and downs, with fears and with
happiness. Making music is always an expression
and somehow also a processing of experiences.
