Errorsmith Returns to PAN with New LP
'Superlative Fatigue' LP is scheduled for October 20 release.
Besides collaborating with the likes of Mark Fell, to Berghain resident Fiedel as MMM, and Soundstream as Smith N Hack, Wiegand has released a string of seminal dancefloor tracks. Building his own instruments using modular software synthesizers is a large part of his work, and almost all the sounds on the LP were created with his synth, “Razor,”—a synthesizer plug-in he developed for Native instruments, released in 2011—or slightly modified versions of it.
The eight-track release is described as his most “optimistic” record yet, and places a “strong emphasis on spectral exploration.” In comparison to his previous productions, Errorsmith (Erik Wiegand) sees the release as less abstract, harsh or aggressive: “I would say it is rather accessible and cheerful; at times ridiculously cheerful but still very sincere and emotional.” He suggests. “I find it touching when this little android raises its pitch at the end of “Lightspeed” or the android catching its breath in “My Party” for instance.”
The album title, Superlative Fatigue, reflects this tension between an over-the-top, hysterical emotion, against more deeply felt expressions or realness.
