Thomas Fehlmann 

Wednesday, Mar 31 2010

When a place is believed to inspire great art, people say something's in the water. But when it comes to Berlin, pioneering electronic composer Thomas Fehlmann thinks it's all about the good air, or Gute Luft, as he calls his latest full-length. Fehlmann has collaborated with numerous heavies in the electronic world — including the Orb's Alex Paterson, Detroit techno pioneer Juan Atkins, Basic Channel's Moritz von Oswald, and electrocoustic singer-songwriter Barbara Morgenstern — and began work on Gute Luft while scoring a 24-hour documentary about his home base. He then edited those abundant sessions into 15 tracks that offer phosphorescent melodies, pneumatic shuffles, and transient dub.
