     new p.c.n - Album out now at
          "Back To The Futurama - Raymond Scott Reworked By p.c.n"


    the Internet-label invited to contribute to an album with a tribute-
    track for Raymond Scott using original audio-material by Scott himself. i
    participated with one track and instantaneously caught fire and wanted to do more
    and release them as well. luckily Reckless Night LLC., who own the rights of
    scotts heritage, were ok with that, and so i produced a whole album, wich is now
    available as free download on bandcamp.
    Raymond Scott was a pioneer in electronic music active in this fild since the 50ies
    but don´t published very little. but slowly his body of work gains attention.
    me anyway ended up with 12 tracks now and had not only fun doin it, i guess i was
    able to relate scotts music to nowadays styles as well. in ay case so it´s quite colorful
    and for the feet as well as for the head...
    here the link to the Album:

     pcn - track bei Aural Films: Krell Music - Various Artists

    the Internet-label has invited to contribute to their krell-music-
    compilation-project/  " imagine it was 1956 and record a Krell Music
    composition to be used at any point in the "Forbidden Planet" film."
    (more details see link). And this is mine:


    my considerations about the task:
    how may the music of the krells have sounded like? one can probably assume,
    as the strange life form they were, very differently than humans music. this
    brought me to the following idea: what if the Krell-music not places sound-events
    in the quiet like forms in empty space are set, but were notched and carved into a
    block of noise? this is the keynote after which I have tried to form this piece. it is
    virtually (for us) one negative music. musical movements or contentsare engraved
    in this block of white noise, which represents silence for them.
     on the other hand: to judge by the extremely high intelligence of the krells, they
    likely had very high demands for the complexity of the music put, so i think, what
    they produced would sound like white noise for us. because they have troubled so
    much, to suppress their primeval instinct, that they sunk their musical expressions
    like their emotions deeply in this sound block andsubjected to structural sound
    organization, as well as our earth-colleagues of the modernc lassical period, to
    very abstract methods, ideas and patterns - naturally at the extremely high
    krell-level. all this may appear to contradict to itself a little, but our human mind is
    not capable to see through this...
     if one looks at the planet on which they lived, they should not be of a condition too
    differently from us humans - at least they obviously had such a thing like ears;
    whether they had more than one, and whether and how far to her hearing excelled
    ours, I have let unconsidered frequencies above 20khz.
