every fragment of recorded sound has a story behind it. spark o (itamar weiner) has become a good friend over a short period of time, probably because one of the core factors in our connection is our sense of wonder surrounding sound. itamar has an astonishing knowledge of electronic music. his dj sets are more like a magical library tour than some tracks thrown together just to make you nod your head.
after a brief but intense bout of mystical improvisations and live performances as "tamarix" along with barry berko, itamar approached me to arrange and mix a few tracks for his debut vinyl print. i was more than intrigued by the raw recordings, and so began another fruitful collaboration.
"variations in intensity" is a true techno snowflake; a journey well beyond the four-on-the-floor dogma. i feel privileged to have arranged and mixed the first three tracks on this excellent album, which was released digitally and on vinyl by itamar's own co-founded label confused machines.
the album includes remixes by mule driver and klankman. listen/buy/order vinyl here.
