Intersonik Recordings presents a limited edition of 180gr vinyl records of previously unreleased material composed by Dimitris Kamarotos, titled “Εlectromagnetic Landscapes”, and ranging from Avant-garde to Εlectro-Acoustic and Ambient.
Dimitris began his career in 1979 using a mix of both analog and digital technologies. In particular, he made use of the analog EMS SYNTHI VCS3 the “4Χ” real time digital system (IRCAM, Paris, France), the UPIC System created by Iannis Xenakis (Center of Modern Music Research, Athens, Greece), Spectrum, Apple McIntosh personal computers and custom circuitries to create his early compositions.
Starting back in Paris in 1983 all the way up to Athens in 2016, he has created numerous audio compositions using both modern studio techniques as well as live performances.
This collection was created as a result of detailed research through Dimitris’s previously unreleased material, which included his private collection of analog reel-to-reel tapes, Hard discs and 48K digital memory devices!
All Side A material was transferred from original masters (stereo analog 1/4 inch tapes) except for the track A05, that was originally mastered on four-channel 1/2 inch analog tape and then remixed into stereo.
Available commercially for the first time since its initial 1991 release, Spiegel’s fantastic “intelligent instrument” album testifies to the power of an artist who pushed the boundaries of electronic music to unexplored territory. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 11, 2019
