Berlin electronic duo Driftmachine follow their 2014 debut, Nocturnes, with Eis Heauton, which takes it's title from the Greek phrase ta eis heauton, or, roughly, a conversation with oneself. Accordingly, the album was constructed from self-generating patches, with Florian Zimmer (Saroos) and Andreas Gerth (Tied & Tickled Trio) providing technical parameters and letting their modular system talk in it's own musical language. The self-generating patches recorded here can be understood as a transcript of those machine-produced monologues, and as artistic research. By evoking a ghostly presence of modular synthesis, the duo find traces of individuality inside their machines. Eis Heauton exhibits a strange and haunting musical cosmos, a quality that is always present in Driftmachine's live shows. Originally released on cassette by Umor Rex in 2015.
