news Posted on Thu, December 31, 2015 00:24:45

to celebrate the last day of the year, here is s a new weird project of mine:

https://raisondetre.bandcamp.com/album/the-red-potato-nose-suite

Named after a late legendary local dipsomaniac in Boxholm, often found
on or lying around his bicycle terrorizing children, Kisaskräcken is
another weird project of Peter Andersson. Inexplicable mumbo jumbo
electronic sounds from the heart of Boxholm. Some of you may remember
the Bocksholm tune The Horror of Kisa, and yes, it’s the same scary
drunkard we are talking about. He had a big red nose.

The live version of The Red Potato Nose Suite is recorded at Hulterstad
Sound, Granforsen/Boxhohlm/Sweden on August the 8th, 2015.

Enjoy the free download!

To celebrate the first recorded observation of the Supernova 1604 (also called Kepler’s Supernova) on the 9th of October 1604 the new Atomine Elektrine album Laniakea will be released tomorrow! The album is dedicated to the late Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream. Available on CD (Wrotycz Records) and as download album (Yantra Atmopsheres). Pre-sale available now:

https://raisondetre.bandcamp.com/album/laniakea

Press release:
The word Laniakea means the immeasurable heaven: deep, spacious, dark and ostensibly emtpy but still full of energy, matter, structures and bright objects. The same words can be said about the sound on the new studio album by Atomine Elektrine. Further on, the ‘Laniakea’ album is also characterized by molecular reactions, eroding particles, nuclear fractals, diffused lightwaves and multiversed orbits. Old fashioned modular analogue electronic synthesis combined with modern digital processing is the gravitational focal point on ‘Laniakea’. The tracks have mainly sequencer driven narratives with ambient layers of both classic retro styled elements and advanced processed novel sounds.

The origin of the ‘Laniakea’ album is based on two fundamental occurrences: The definition of the galaxy supercluster Laniakea in 2014 and the decease of the Tangerine Dream mastermind Edgar Froese in 2015. ‘Laniakea’ is simply a homage to the vastness of space and a eulogy to the kosmische musik that appeared in the early 1970’s.

Three bonus tracks (sketches) are included on the CD version (duration 76 minutes) compared to the digital download album (duration 61 minutes). Comes in a 6-panel digipak sleeve with original art by Hypsis.

atomine elektrine – elemental severance (redux) is now available

news Posted on Mon, July 20, 2015 13:22:42

atomine elektrine – elemental severance redux 2CD / download is now available in my bandcamp webshop.

http://webshop.raison-detre.info/album/elemental-severance-redux

Press release:
Labelled as ‘new-age-sacro-trance’ at the time, ‘Elemental Severance’
actually shows a wide spectrum of electronic styles resulting in a
hybrid, yet cohesive masterwork. From trancey rhythms and dreamy, sacral
ambiences to occasional male/female choirs, melancholic melodies and
well inserted samples. As if the imaginary past and present could touch
each other, everything is involved by a majestic, unique surreal
atmosphere, producing gorgeous sounds that leaves you truly mesmerized.

This expanded double disc redux version of ‘Elemental Severance’
original album, first released on Cold Meat Industry in 1995, has been
carefully re-recorded and mixed in 2015 for a more enhanced and
contemporary experience. The extensive extra material, taken from the
same recording sessions as ‘Elemental Severance’, has in part been
reduxed else transfered from original master recordings.

Download also includes six bonus tracks

atomine elektrine – ‘leftfield’ – free download

news Posted on Sat, May 02, 2015 19:32:29

Atomine Elektrine – ‘Leftfield’ – Free digital album now available

http://webshop.raison-detre.info/album/leftfield

Leftovers compiled. Experimental electronic adventures created as test
recordings for evaluating equipment. The tracks are not unique since
they have been released before, but because of the kind of leftovers the
are they did not fit into the concept of those releases. So, a
dedicated concept album with only the experimental leftover tracks alone
suited better. Free and happy download.

Released 24 April 2015

All music by Peter Andersson.

Track 01-06 composed 1997-1998. Original release on ‘Atom Xtension’
CD-R, Yantra Atmospheres 1999. Also available on ‘Binomial Fusion’ 2CD
on Essence Music 2004.

Track 07-08 composed 2003. Original release on ‘Zektor X’ Download album, Yantra Atmospheres 2010.

Free download of Dementia – ‘Limbus (revisited)’ 1991

Free download of Dementia – ‘Limbus (revisited)’ 1991

http://webshop.raison-detre.info/album/limbus-revisited

With
‘Limbus (revisited)’ Peter Andersson goes back to the year 1991 and
select the best moments from an early demo tape by his Dementia-project.
The original demo contains 20 tracks, so half of them are included in
this revisit. The last track became an unique bonus track copied to the
master-tape alone a month later after the actual release. So the track,
which was obviously not treated with care concerning the quality, was
never included in the 1991 edition. The vocals of that last track is
written and performed by Johanna Rosenqvist (KOEFF, Institut).

Dementia was a project by Peter Andersson existing only in 1991. Influences came from EBM, Synthpop, Techno and Industrial.

Released 20 March 2015

Music by Peter Andersson 1991. K-14 mastering 2015.

Lyric and vocals on ‘Fasces (vocal)’ by Johanna Rosenqvist 1991.

Original released on May 21, 1991, as ‘Limbus’ MC (demo), B.o.C.a.t-003.

Digital release by Yantra Atmospheres. YA-2015-80.

Free download of Dementia – ‘The Noistracker Sessions’ 1991

news Posted on Mon, December 22, 2014 18:26:33

To celebrate
Christmas and New Year I have released a free download album as a gift
to the world. Dementia is a project I had in 1991. This is low-fi 8-bit
music is made on a Atari 1040STE and Noistracker software. The Atari
desktop inspired artwork may be the ugliest I have ever done. Enjoy
anyway, it’s free!

http://webshop.raison-detre.info/album/the-noisetracker-sessions

This is a homage to the Atari 1040STE computer and the Noisetracker software!

When I started making music with help of a computer this was my first
setup and ‘The Noisetracker Sessions’ contains the complete collection
of tracks that I made with Noisetracker. This is not the high quality
music you are used to hear from Peter Andersson. The sounds used in this
music is clearly low resolution 8-bit mono. At this point raison d’être existed only in
theory, but just a few weeks after working with Noisetracker I bought a
multi-timbral synthesizer and used Steinberg 12 software (soon replaced by Steinberg 24 Pro), and that marked
the real start of raison d’être.

Dementia was a project by Peter Andersson existing only in 1991.
Influences came from EBM, Synthpop, Techno and Industrial. I’m pretty
sure this is very weird music for most of us. Anyhow, it is a
documentation of a strange moment in the music career of Peter
Andersson.

Track 01-02 taken from Suffering Deaths Agony In Affliction, MC 1991, B.o.C.a.t-004.

Track 03-08+10+23+26+28-29 taken from Subhumans, MC 1991, B.o.C.a.t-002.

Track 09+13-16+18+20+22+24-25+27 taken from Lost Recipes Now Recovered, MC 1991, B.o.C.a.t-009.

Remaining tracks are previously unreleased.

All tracks made by Peter Andersson in 1991 using Atari 1040STE computer and Noisetracker software.

K-14 level mastering 2014 from original 2-channel MC master tapes.

Digital release by Yantra Atmospheres, YA-2014-79.
