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.
