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
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.
