Benjamin Brunn has been honing his distinctive and original sound over a series
of intermittent releases, starting with his Fahrstuhlmusik series of CDs
distributed by Hardwax . Since then he has recorded for an impressive list of
labels; Ware, Mole Listening Pearls, Millions of Moments, Workshop, Neo Ouija,
United States of Mars, Mule Electronic and Smallville. Most recently he has made
Third Ear his home, releasing the wonderful Hello Ammmerika ep in 2011. His use
of the Nord Modular synth is one of the defining characteristics of his sound.
He uses the instrument in a wide-ranging and original way, accompanied by a
Roland TR707 drum machine. A Sun Life shows Benjamin Brunn achieving something
like a perfection of his sound.
Benjamin Brunns collaboration with Move D (David Moufang), the album Songs From
The Beehive, has, since its release in May 2008, been considered a landmark
album. A Sun Life is possibly another. One reviewer of Songs From The Beehive
perceptively described Benjamin Brunns modus operandi as something like fluid
mechanics, or the science of how fluids move. This may or may not be related to
the fact that he is a engineer currently working with fluid dynamics. All the
tracks on A Sun Life have a fluidity and viscosity, whether like water or oil or
honey .. air or sunlight. They start, flow and grow, shift and shimmer, their
latent power held in some kind of check. Then they dissipate and fade.
A Sun Life was not conceived as a piece of work with a theme. Over a period of
two years, Benjamin Brunn sent tracks to Third Ear. Slowly the album began to
take shape and become A Sun Life, an album full of different vibes, different
grooves, different flows. An album that we think presents Benjamin Brunns music
Mastered by Stefan Betke @ Scape Mastering, Berlin.
