about

A widescreen album about interactions and the traces they leave behind.

Bit-Tuner’s 7th album «EXO» marks a milestone in his work: the widescreen and nearly beatless opus focusses on musical storytelling and atmospheric depth. The album was written and recorded towards the end of Bit-Tuner’s 2-year stay in Athens.

Influenced by topics like the social and structural turmoils of the past years, the strong connections between communities and the sensation of being in an economic deadlock, Bit-Tuner wrote an album that urges to be listened to in a (self-)reflective way. It is a call to listeners to listen closely, delve into the sounds surrounding them in any given moment and draw a quiet but firm inspiration from within. Following his field recording-based albums «The China Syndrome» and «The Japan Syndrome», «EXO» highlights his interest in cinematic music and soundtracks.

For the album, Bit-Tuner is collaborating with film maker Joerg Hurschler, who is creating animated footage that is screened, mixed and live scored at Bit-Tuner’s shows in 2020. The material will also be released as video clips accompanying the album.

Joerg Hurschler’s work tells the story of molecular objects being propelled into a world similar to ours, where they operate, interact and affect their surroundings, creating and leaving behind something new and strange. What is it that surrounds us, and how do we approach and interact with forces that are beyond our (apparent) reach?
