Traumwelt is from Roswell, Georgia, USA

Traumwelt is in many ways a rejection of modern electronic music. Firstly, the raw production style stands in adamant opposition to the glossy, overly polished recordings that are so prevalent in the genre. Purity of sound is an illusion. We humans are flawed creatures, and thus, our music must be equally flawed, to reflect the human experience. As such, everything is recorded in one take, and "mistakes" are left alone. I'm not perfect, so neither is my work.

Secondly, Traumwelt is entirely without form or structure. Here again, this reflects the chaotic nature of our world, which exists in a state of constant fluctuation.

Lastly, Traumwelt combines beauty with dissonance, in order to achieve a true balance between darkness and light. The way in which electronic music tends to strive for ethereal soundscapes OR unbridled cacophony is entirely displeasing to me. One must have both in order to harmonize the forces of nature.

The term "Felix Culpa" is Latin for "Happy Fall", and it refers to the Renaissance idea that Adam and Eve's Fall from the Garden of Eden was necessary and beautiful, because it gave us knowledge.

However, the term also has personal meaning in my mind. Love is in itself a "Felix Culpa", because it speaks to the vulnerabilities and turbulence associated with completely devoting oneself to another person, hence the "Fall". Nevertheless, it also ignites within us an extraordinary feeling of elation and weightlessness.

Thus, love is a "Happy Fall", a Felix Culpa.
