Premiere - The effect of Butterfly Destiny (official video)
Enjoy the flapping of the wings of this distant butterfly ...
(and the little interview SECRET OF ELEMENTS granted us).
Johann Pätzold is a young self-taught pianist from Rostock in former Nord Germany. This former East German harbour town has ran into financial difficulties since the reunification. The city has been highlighted several times in national media for racial acts of aggressions. Since an early age he has been very active in the local cultural scene. He's a political and social activist that has fought to protect the activities and support the Volkstheater of Rostock financially. Johann has been volunteering for refugee assistance since the beginning of the Migrant crisis.
Musically, he has started with producing music for Theater, Dance and Film before publishing his own production under the Secret of Elements moniker. He set up his own label Gleichklang recording. We first discovered Johann's production whilst we were working on the first instalment of the #Explorer compilation series (from which "The effect of Butterfly Destiny" is taken from).
Since then, Johann has been hired for a very secret mission to bring one of our forthcoming project to the next stage. But it´s all very hush hush right now. In the meantime, we are thrilled to premiere the official video of his epic and classy debut track for InFiné.
For the last nine years, we have been exploring uncharted territories, bringing artists from various musical backgrounds together to go on new adventures. Artist development is an art that has become risky in todays climate, the certainty of success is comparable to the likelihood of an ice cube remaining frozen under a blazing sun.
To satisfy our ferocious appetite for brand new exciting sounds, we decided to bring eleven young producers together on an InFiné compilation released today.
This is also a way for us to celebrate the week when our annual summer artist residency Workshop InFiné would have normally taken place. Sadly, the Carrière du Normandoux venue is closed for refurbishment this summer so the 7th edition of Workshop InFiné will take place in 2016 instead.
Explorer#1 gathers emerging artists and anonymous producers who have contributed to this project with sheer enthusiasm. The international line-up swings between different genres, from ambient music to raw techno. They are all offering a personal and unique vision of modern electronic music. We bet that some of these artists will still be around to celebrate our 10th and 20th anniversaries with us!
We’ve chosen to present the artists music one by one during the summer, through podcasts, playlists and various other means to nourish your very own appetite of discovery!
Finally, this project’s singularity lies in the unprecendeted system we set up to produce the vinyl in collaboration with the start-up Vinyl It. Once 150 pre-orders is reached, we launch the fabrication: each and everyone contribution will enable the creation of a quality physical object that highlights the artists and their productions.
