Covenant were centimeters from quitting. But now the recharged band aims at version 2, with a new line-up (Daniel Myer), studio, sound and album. A new song was preimiered at Das Boot and the album recordings start in February.
But is this new talent enough to keep the group going, here you can find out more about his background in Architect and Haujob
architect is a hybrid of minimalistic drum’n'bass and smooth ambient soundscapes explored by the electronic mastermind daniel meyer.
like an architect who built up his constructions in different layers and channels, also daniel is working with this method by using only sampling tools. he’s constructing abstract sonic buildings which seem to be peculiar transparent – like concrete frames without any surfaces in a pleasant familiarity. the cold polyrhythmic drumcodes are bet into a melted ambience of safety and grace. it’s the warm timbre of this ambient drum’n bass recording which creates its own unique sonic profile.
The future of synth music – I hope not (well some of my friends may like this => you know who you are )
As much as I like Covenant, I am not sure where this is heading
Well I bring you Eskil’s side project (on request, hehe) Cement, enjoy…..
Have a great weekend, Cheers
