Daniele Antezza and Marco Donnarumma link up with Andrea Familari, aka FAX, for a new audiovisual collaboration.
Hypersynchron, the second album from Italian bass wizards Dadub, takes as its inspiration post-apocalyptic scenarios that seem closer than ever. Daniele Antezza and Marco Donnarumma craft cavernous soundscapes out of seismic low-end, radioactive dub sampling and sci-fi sound design, gesturing towards any number of uncertain futures.
“Hypersynchron was entirely recorded during live improvisation sessions”, explains label Ohm Resistance, “where Dadub created music by feeding alien sounds from machines and traditional instruments to their signature hardware feedback system, for hours on end.”
“The quantum agency and dub spirit of the system – engineered and designed across several years by paying respect to the tradition of dubbing – served the duo well in bringing together extremely high-resolution sounds with chest-opening bass outrage.”
Berlin-based multimedia artist Andrea Familari, aka FAX, has collaborated with the duo to create Hypersynchronous, an audiovisual accompaniment to the album intended for live presentations. Focusing on data analysis of the duo’s sonic terrain, FAX generates distorted landscapes, surreal forms and abstract scenery.
Hypersynchron arrives on October 23 and is available to pre-order now. For more information about FAX and his work, you can visit his website and follow him on Instagram.
