about

this album (ramp008) was recorded between may 2010 and june 2011 at my cold furnace studio in bielefeld.

it was called "return" because it was the most analogue-sounding album ['ramp] had made so far, going back even further than "nodular" (1998') or "frozen radios" (2000). this album literally marked a return to heavily sequencer-driven electronic music combined with apocalyptic ambience.

it showcases a lot of analogue and early digital synthesisers and sequencers (such as the rmi harmonic synthesizer, mini moog, arp 2600, ems vcs-3, prophet 5, triadex muse, mellotron, korg polyphonic ensemble 2000, and elka rhapsody), and of course the entire album was produced without midi.

"infernal machines 1 & 2" was recorded on 12th march 2011 with nhk news broadcast on tv.

the album is dedicated to stanislav petrov.
