"Urlichten" is the song playing on my stereo right now. This whole record is fantastic. I think "Walden 2" is my favorite track this week.

You ever have really good creeper bud, where you go around for 20 minutes not realizing what is happening to your head, but then there's this moment of realization where you're like, "Holy shit, I'm really high!" That's what walking around listening to this album on headphones is like. My #1 of 2007.

It's really lovely but there's something that prevents me from ever wanting to listen all the way through in one sitting. Perhaps its the limitations of the sound palette but there are some amazing melodic touches in there.

I finally bought it (issues of loyalty to record stores that haven't been able to get it in, as well as delayed release in north america (I think) held me back) and it's pretty much what I'd expect this to be, nothing short of sublime.
I'm dead serious when I say Pantha du Prince reminds me why I like music in the first place. Listening to this, It almost put me back to when I just first started listening to electronic music, and probably back to when I first heard a melody that I just couldn't get over. I got this distinct feeling halfway through the album of being 16 again and first listening to Lawrence (obviously the similarity of the two artists factors in, but Lawrence was one of the first techno/house producers I started listening to, and one of the very first I felt really strongly about)and just being amazed at this new (to me) music which was just so mesmerizing and astonishing. And Pantha du Prince brings that feeling back, and he puts everything since then into context, he provides this amazing feeling of hearing something that feels like it's the first time combined with the familiarity and knowledge that comes with experience.
For me, he is honestly one of those artists that only comes once in every few couple years, if that.

Two new remixes of his out recently: solomun , and errrm, someone else I can't remember, but of a track called deep tunnels, which has a lot of potential if it sounds like the title suggests. Downloaded the solomun one, haven't listened to it yet, but it sounds like a good remix, more dark and straightforward. Anyone heard the first one I mentioned?

boomkat sample of "deep tunnel" (the original is by 'blunt')(no, i haven't heard of him before either)(lousy name) sounds really nice. i have the solomun remix somewhere, but for some reason it didn't really stick with me, might have to give it a re-listen.

the whole of "deep tunnel" is really nice. also, its predictably pretty, but if can't really get enough melancholy minimal tech with orchestral flourishes (i'm not sure i can) check out his remix of raz ohara and the odd orchestra's "kisses".

I forgot to mention kisses, which I've kind of previewed to mixed feelings, but don't listen to that because it's very much the kind of thing you need to hear from beginning to end.
In my end of the year list which is still in progress, I made a conscious decision to limit it to 1 track per artist, as otherwise it would just be This Bliss! Honestly though, Saturn Strobe (my #1), Florac, and the Peacebone remix are all top 10 for sure.
― mehlt, Thursday, 6 December 2007 23:43 (5 years ago) Permalink
here's Howard Skempton's utterly sublime "Lento" which Pantha used as the basis for "Saturn Strobe". it was good of him to give Skempton the entire writing credit for the track but a little shameful of him to mis-credit the track to "Robert Skempton" on the sleeve! i sent this to a friend of mine a while back and he messaged me tonight to say that it had just brought him to the verge of tears.

There's no news like really fucking good news. One of our favourite labels in the world, Hamburg's Dial Records, has revealed its release plans for 2009, prompting at least one member of the FACT editorial team to wet himself.
First up, it looks as though there'll be a new Pantha Du Prince album hitting shelves before the year is out. The last album by Pantha AKA Henrik Weber (pictured above), This Bliss, was one of the albums of 2007, and it's shaping up to be one of the albums of the decade n'all. Details of its follow-up are scarce (i.e. non-existent), but we're reliably informed that it's going to surface "late 2009". It will be preceded in the early part of the year by a new 12" (dial45).
The most imminent Dial release is an EP collection entitled Pyramid Drift, due out on February 2nd. It features post-punk legend Momus along with Christoph de Babalon, Efdemin and Arises. This will be followed by Christian Naujok's debut LP on March 16th, which we're told will "deliver Marimba instrumentals, 12tone r 'n' b, piano pieces and endearing pop songs!"
In late April, Phantom/Ghost return with a new album, Thrown Out of Drama School, and 12" releases from Pigon and John Roberts are in the pipeline too. As if that's not enough, an album is expected from Pawel in the latter part of the year, while Carsten Jost is working on new material and Dial boss/figurehead Lawrence has completed an LP for release on Mule Electronic in late summer.
News comes and news goes, but this is too good of an announcement to help start to the new year
― mehlt, Tuesday, 13 January 2009 04:03 (4 years ago) Permalink
the new 12" is this big ominous riff that dissipates into this noodly melodic thing about 2/3rds of the way though, really great.

"Pantha du Prince signed to Rough Trade Records. New album Black Noise to be released on Rough Trade on the 8th of Febuary 2010.
Black Noise includes collaborations with Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear of Animal Collective and Tyler Pope of !!! and LCD Soundsystem. Prepared instruments played on location in Swiss by Joachim Schütz, Stephan Abry and Hendrik Weber. "
Intrigued, at the very least. The last single - "Behind The Stars" wasn't that engaging, but given that "This Bliss" still delivers sublime listening (even if xpost kinda sullied the whole thing with pointing out the trick) and is even now frequently listened to, I'm looking forward to the new album.

The remix album contains that Four Tet remix of the track that Panda Bear sings on, yeah, but it also contains a separate Animal Collective remix of a different track called "Welt am Draht"... I just don't like the flow and shapelessness of it very much. But I too find myself singing the Panda Bear song from Black Noise to myself all the freaking time, entirely randomly!

PANTHA DU PRINCE & THE BELL LABORATORY, ELEMENTS OF LIGHT, TO BE RELEASED ON 14TH JANUARYWork Composed by Pantha Du Prince Features a Three-Tonne, 50-Bell Carillon, Percussion and Electronics
Over the course of three albums—and as an in-demand remixer of artists ranging from Animal Collective to, most recently, Philip Glass—the Berlin-based musician and producer Pantha Du Prince (Hendrik Weber) has been celebrated for pushing the envelope of electronic music. His newest effort, Elements of Light, a collaborative project with The Bell Laboratory, is doubtless his most ambitious to date: The work is a symphony for electronics, percussion and bell carillon, a three-tonne instrument comprising 50 bronze bells. The genesis of the project began in Oslo in the summer of 2010, when Weber was having lunch with the local curators Mattis With and Håkon Vinnogg and heard, in the distance, one of the concerts that are played multiple times daily on a bell carillon inside the city hall. Weber was struck by how the frequencies and overtones unfolded unpredictably, influenced one another, and resonated, more or less, throughout the Norwegian capital. With and Vinnogg suggested he compose for the carillon, which was developed in China 3,500 years ago, during the Shang Dynasty, and made its way to Europe during the Middle Age. Weber began collaborating with the Norwegian Lars Petter Hagen, who served as arranger and conductor. For the recording, a bell carillon was shipped from Denmark to Germany, where Vegar Sandholt, the same carillonist that Weber had heard during his stay in Oslo, played it. A separate session, in Oslo, brought together a variety of percussionists, including Weber; Martin Horntveth, of Jaga Jazzist, Killl and The National Bank; Erland Dahlen, of Nils Petter Molvaer Trio, Susanne Sundfør, Madrugada, Xploding Plastix, and Kaada; the researcher and performer Håkon Stene, who teaches at the Norwegian Academy of Music; and Heming Valebjørg, of the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. They contributed numerous tubular bells, marimba, xylophone, cymbals, chimes, handclaps, finger snaps and other percussion. The album is a single continuous work, although it has been broken down into five tracks named for elements of light: “Wave,” “Particle,” Photon,” “Spectral Split” and “Quantum.” Sonically, the work is a fusion of electronic music and classical composition, and draws on house and minimalism, jazz and new music, gamelan and western sacred music. Influences include John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Steve Reich, LaMonte Young and Moondog.Elements of Light is a natural next step in the Pantha Du Prince oeuvre. Bells figured prominently on his last album, the highly acclaimed Black Noise, which Rough Trade Records released in 2010. In a Best New Music review of Black Noise, Pitchfork said, “each track is its own micro sound world with enough rich detail to draw you back for deeper investigation.”Elements of Light live performances are being planned for late 2013.
― lex pretend, Wednesday, 17 October 2012 17:40 (7 months ago) Permalink
I was quite excited upon reading that and the track is really nice but it does sound almost exactly like most of the last two albums but with live percussion. I still find myself wishing he'd stretch himself more either melodically or texturally.

Ooh, I quite like the youtube with live bells. It does seem to lift it above the "more of that same album he makes every years" thing. I'm not sure what exact envelope he's supposed to have been pushing exactly.
I didn't get around to listening to the remix album for Black Noise, maybe it will help me get into that record more. Magical words "Four Tet remix" appear in there.

His music is lovely but he doesn't "push the envelope" at all, that's just press release bollocks.
I mean when you read things like a fusion of electronic music and classical composition, and draws on house and minimalism, jazz and new music, gamelan and western sacred music. Influences include John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Steve Reich, LaMonte Young and Moondog then it's reasonable to expect a greater departure. Maybe the rest of the record will provide that.
Probably looking forward to the live performance more than anything right now.

pretty much, but for the encore did reworked older Pantha material (Eisbaden among them)
the ravey/percussiony bits were way more intense than on record, and it was really visually compelling too - the lights, the shadows, the weirdly robed musicians (at first I thought it was a religious thing - the whole thing sounds so devotional) - but their costumes were actually scientists' lab coats; also, the actual act of playing bells is oddly fun to watch
