04 The Qualia Problem 5:45


Written, performed and produced by Jez Mond

This is my latest release. It is a collection of tracks that I have recorded over the last two years. It is an electronic album that contains a mixture of styles, but is predominantly dark and atmospheric. I use a mixture of analogue synths, digital synths and live instruments. I also use field recordings (sometimes heavily manipulated) that I have recorded on my travels. My intention is to create an immersive sound experience with a mobile mix.

Thanks for tuning in and I hope you enjoy the trip.

A micro-interview with Jorge Gisbert Soler on his album:

• is it a concept album, with its tracks following a common thread?
Yes, my second work develops as a progression without pretensions or anything established. It follows and explores sonic territories, which are more related to the analysis and enjoyment of sound experience, than an approach strictly linked to the dance floor. In fact, I think none of the tracks can be danced, at least I wouldn’t ;)

• what do the album & track titles mean in English?
Although I am Spanish I belong to the Levante region and I speak Valencian, and the titles are not in Spanish either. Bandname and album title are an anaphora of darkness, and this album is just a dense journey though it: "Dark Shadow - Output Transition Beyond a Rough Interior".

• is your music based on improvised playing or is it more conceptual composition?
I do not consider myself too much of a musician, rather a guy who knows how to change parameters in a computer software. But the composition of my songs, the albums, even the musical project itself, are quite conceptual and methodical. Being this one of the things that give character to the album.

• were there other musicians involved?
At the moment I work only on my tracks, although I do not rule out possible collaborations. In fact, I currently have a few musician friends working on remixes of the songs from this latest album. And I find myself working on other projects that also involve more musicians, in addition to a new LP to release under this same alias.

• what equipment do you use?
Mostly I’ve always been a software guy, I’ve tried various hardware gadgets but in the end I’ve always been discarding gear. Nowadays I work with a very small and simple setup, a laptop, ableton live as my DAW, a tiny audio interface, my headphones and a pair of small midi usb controllers also, only for lives. Working with such a small equipment allows me a lot of versatility and freedom of movement, also it allows me to put the focus on the production and not on tedious days of configuration and hardware patching.

Pink Dream is the third album released by Portland based ambient producer Elijah Knutsen under his new-age imprint Memory Color. The album is an exploration into the ambient side of cemented genres such as Shoegaze and Dream-Pop. Inspired by artists and groups like Harold Budd, My Bloody Valentine, and Cocteau Twins, Pink Dream consists of four translucent soundscapes, washed in reverb and tremolo-like modulation, and melded with subtle field recordings.
