[TRANSMISSION016] Viele Produkte – Geist-Mechaniker
Viele Produkte is the eclectic musical entity of Michael Aranda from Austin, Texas. Ranging from noise and dark ambient, drone, faux-classical to techno, house, and pop. Overall, VP is a celebration of all electronic music from Luigi Russolo to Afrika Bambaataa to Aphex Twin.
‘Geist-Mechaniker’ is the second VP album, recorded May-June 2011. The idea was to explore the sounds of heavy industry while imagining the factory as a conscious creation with a kind of spiritual sentience. It’s also sought to pay homage to the composer Karlheinz Stockhausen (hence the closing piece, ‘Stimmung’).
