The show must go on and we’re over mid-way through our busy schedule for 2019. Next we’re back in Germany as we welcome Mainz based artist Tobias Lorsbach who records as Logic Moon. I See Planets is a deep and dense Ambient/Drone album created using guitar and retro synths and it features the collage artwork of Thomas Easton. This will be available in 2019’s signature gatefold-LP style CD, in a run of 100 copies with packaging design arranged by the artists themselves. We’ll release this officially on or around the 13th of July 2019. This has plenty of detail so should not be viewed as a pure drone album and it should appeal to those who follow artists such as Truthiscolor, Hotel Neon or Tone Color.
Whitelabrecs low-run releases will be made available suddenly without official release dates, meaning they’re likely to sell out fast. The best way to keep informed is to join our mailing list which can be located through our website menu or you can click HERE
“Logic Moon is Tobias Lorsbach, an artist from Mainz, Germany. His previous releases have appeared on labels such as Archives, Archipel and his own spontanMusik imprint across all physical and digital formats. He spent many years in the minimal techno scenes since the early 2000s and whilst out on a field recording excursion, he fell upon the idea of layering some Ambient drones. From here, his debut album as Logic Moon was born, Herbst11.
Tobias’ musical background has drawn in a widescreen of genres with him having performed guitar in a death metal band, embarked on a DJ career and now as an Ambient musician. His varied experiences have only served to give birth to a range of ideas which are evident in his latest album ‘I See Planets’, clocking in at just over an hour.
Compositions typically start life as a sketch on guitar before synth and additional components were added to build an environment.
Retro-futurism is the over-arching concept to I See Planets, something which Tobias does not map out for you the listener to read so you’re clear. Instead, this bewildering atmosphere is a heady journey that requires the time and space for it to unfold carefully.
The title track opens proceedings over 8 minutes, taking its time to wash over science fiction tales from the 70s. ‘Somnia’ follows, hinting of a drowsy night’s gaze into the black sky above as you imagine all kinds of stars, galaxies and planets. Fleeting moments of warmth are interspersed with themes of artificial intelligence, comprehension of time and darkness.
We’ve teamed up with Thomas Easton for the artwork, who produces retro-futuristic collages. We discovered his work through Instagram and we’re pleased to find a work of art which truly encapsulates the tales of I See Planets.”
