Hainbach – Tagwerk (IC025)

| | , ,

Hainbach is the paradigm of the revaluation of outdated material and the reconditioning of machines destined for other purposes that have nothing to do with sound, although his work as a researcher is currently much broader, his technological mastery is possibly one of the most advanced of our era.

Industrial Complexx publishes a book that tells the story of this German producer and researcher, from his past as a musician and member of different bands to how his interest in synthesis and electronic instruments arose, and also talks about many of his machines and working techniques.

The book is published together with Tagwerk, an album that honors Hainbach’s way of working. It is recorded with a Crumar DS-2, a vintage Italian synthesizer he acquired and which started malfunctioning soon after he started it up, hence the title. This album is about embracing the broken and letting it inspire you. Much of it was recorded in two days, he didn’t even dare to open the window or turn off the synthesizer for fear that inspiration would escape or that it would break completely. He recorded 22 tracks in this marathon state, and the ones released on this release are the ones that survived. There is a sonic magic in that era that is unsurpassed.

The album has been mastered by SOJ. As for the book, Ximo Noguera has been in charge of the text, Mimusa has been in charge of the artcover and the graphic design has been the work of Iván Galíndez.

Release date: October 13th, 2022.
