feedback ep consists of two rather unusual tracks, different in their appearance, but quite similar in their structure and creative process that involved manual realtime tuning of it’s resonance frequencies in the feedback loop, to the point where it’s own audio output was moved into the area of ‘microphony’ frequences, which were then guided to form their own layers of tone and melody, by the means of active live manipulation of sound sources and their flows.
by achieving this state of ‘controlled chaos’, both of the tracks are completelly made free from it’s sequencing and let alone to roam, while still keeping it as a whole in the area of comprehensive music, rather than pure uncontrolled noise. the result is completelly genuine artificially generated music that is strikingly organic, although it is completelly made out of vapour in the artificial digital-analogue process.
both tracks are the original live recordings, not in any way modified from their original form. source sounds are our own drum recordings.
the names are chosen in respect to their general feel, as how could those extreme states of nature sound, if we could exist in their vicinity at all.
faktor & vektor is a collaboration project of dominator and trut, belgrade based computer+drums duo producing experimental music ranging from drum and bass, jungle and techno all the way to abstract ambient. it is founded in 2005 and to this date have no official releases, although their music is already featured in some movies and tv series, and also in public on various events ranging from dnb to abstract noize, performed and remixed by phase, codex, dominator, kdes and kosmoplovci.
dominator is active in music scene since 1993, producing all kinds of electronic music under various names. he is also a wide known demoscene, music and art activist, being the main person behind corrosion and kosmoplovci groups, involved in numerous projects as music, video, design and programming artist.
trut is best known as being a long time collaborator with serbian musician rambo amadeus, following him and supporting with live drums for most of his carreer, starting back in 1988. he is a bit less known for being a huge music activist, especially supporting and spreading jungle and drum’n’bass scene starting from the early days, but also having an open ear for the experimental side of electronic music. his drumming skills are exceptional and he is widely respected as being one of the best serbian drummers (if not THE best…) but he is also quite open-minded and interested in collaborations that can bring him to situations to develop and create new sounds and ideas by merging best of both analog and digital worlds.
this was the point where dominator and trut met and understood each other, and started to make music together as faktor & vektor.
this is faktor & vektor second public release.
