about

HV025 Equal Stones - Transgression

"Transgression" is a third release on Hidden Vibes by Amandus Schaap, an ambient producer from the Netherlands also active on the Myosotis project.

When Amandus put together the setlist to this release he had a lot of tracks already finished, laying about. He decided to go with a drone theme this time around. The tracks on Transgression are mainly built up from multilayered synths accompinied with a lot of microsounds, statics, vinyl sampling, scrapes and minimal guitar textures, alot of these slightly hidden in the high register. There are some vocal patterns holding the melody in place, but most of the experience is built upon textures.

The idea for the title of the third track, Reject All You Have Learned, comes from a quote of one of musician's favorite philisophers Emil M. Cioran. "Chaos is rejecting all you have learned, chaos is being yourself." This track is a lenghty experiment in which Amandus tries to give form to the chaos he experiences in life.


This album really shines when you take off your headphones and listen to the tracks on a well equipped stereo setup.

The vinyl version of Transgression comes on virgin 180 grams vinyl, and comes in a gatefold sleeve with beautiful artwork designed and produced by Tessel Dekker.

PRESS:

"This auditory “Transgression” is the manifestation of the chaos within the life of composer Amandus Schaap. But this chaos is more of an awakening than a harsh anarchy. The music embraces the chaos, as a rejection of everything he has come to know as truth. This theme is conveyed very well in this album however, the sonic turmoil is countered and balanced by atmospheres of positivity and deep introspection." (c) Bryan Hilyard // Tone Harvest
