Kompakt’s next Pop Ambient compilation, curated by Wolfgang Voigt, comes out on November 30th, 2018. My friend Yui Onodera, who’s working on the soundtrack of the cage I’m currently producing, has also contributed a track.
Here’s Voigt’s statement: “When a record label thrives after 25 years thanks to a focus of what was expected to be a short-lived music phenomenon called techno, then it stands to prove two things; that techno has taken its place amongst ‘serious’ genres. KOMPAKT has never been only for techno, but stands as a broad-minded entity that has set out to cross-pollinatewithin the realm of electronic music. Through its course, KOMPAKT has sent all kinds of sub-genres, and crossover adventures based on the non-negotiable 4/4 beat around the world. The 100% kick drum-free Pop Ambient series is the most endearing and enduring concept that I have had the pleasure to curate. I felt there was a strong need to add a certain elegance — ensouled by discourse as much as hedonism — to a sound that was recognized as ‘chill out’ music that could be heard in back rooms and forgotten festival areas. Over the years, I like to imagine that Pop Ambient has crystallized into musical universe of its own. I put together this year’s edition by plowing through an ocean of sonic jewelry from all over the world. For this special edition, I create a homogenous experience that would both appeal to our followers and continue our tradition while integrating new micro-facets from neighboring musical universes as much as possible. The headline ‘Ambient’ might sound a little too humble but it still helps as a necessary means of orientation in the best possible sense. Same goes for another dear tradition: Veronika Unland’s abstract-floral cover design that keeps on pleasing our sore eyes year after year. Although every Pop Ambient edition doesn’t shy away from diving into the relevant question of ‘What is contemporary discourse music’, in the end it boils down to that elevated moment where all theory dissolves into ambient air, into a higher state of cosmic bliss. Pop Ambient is sacral music for non-believers.”

“Stories for a more-than-human world” is a group exhibition with a series of talks and tours. The invited positions for the exhibition range from sculptures, drawings and video, to installations with electronics or living bio-matter. The main selection criteria was that the works emphasize a non-anthropocentric viewpoint and critically or playfully investigate understandings of being human, being machine, being hybrid in a present where the impact of technology – be it on the environment or on our own bodies – is ubiquitous.
The theme of the event is a reaction to recent discussions between humanities and natural sciences about new approaches to thinking about, looking at, working with, and being inside nature. It draws references from fields of posthuman theory, new materialism, cybernetics and science and technology studies.
