Über Wilhelm Bras / Lautbild
Wilhelm Bras – Paweł Kulczyński, a musician and sound artist immersed in his modular synthesizers and the physics of noise, an avid analogue synth enthusiast, who builds his own machines, a neo alchemist of sound. He sculpts analogue beats and subtle glitches and bleeps. His new album – Wordless Songs by the Electric Fire – is a prime example of noodles and glitches sourced from his living and breathing electronics, a result of years of DIY nerding and sonic research. Danceable, bubbling analogue beats and trippy atmospherics make it as apt for the dancefloor, as for your home listening. The warmth of analogue and the weird sounds conjure a world that’s playful and utterly likeable, in our universe, that is. The listener is invited into his analogue microcosm, guided by the steady rhythm, sometimes straying from the path, only to come back disoriented but convinced.
