POOLcast 012 - GNILYF

The first edition in the second year of our POOLcast series we deliver an exclusive mix from Gnilyf, me. Part of the POOL Berlin and the POOLcast team. Member of the open collaboration project PLO, graphic designer at Klangscheiben and mastering engineer for mircomod music. And because it seems weird to me to write the same kind of text, like I did for the wonderful artists before, i will leave a personal note here.

Over more than a decade I became a self-educated graphic and sound designer. Enjoyed music, books, movies and games. Years in which I discover more and more what is possible by the interplay of the arts. Words, images and sound can shape new worlds. Not only the world that the creativity of the artist itself creates rather than the creativity that every person shapes in it own mind. A painting, a piece of music or a story can create million of imaginary worlds, based on the mind set and even by the daily mood of the beholder. The paint on canvas, the fibration of a string or the letters on a sheet of paper don't contain creativity on its own. These things are physical spells and mathematical wisdom. Mechanisms, the contrary of creativity. Art emerges from the dissonance of the pieces the artist create and the perspective of the beholder. And every attempt to reduce this dissonance will reduce your creativity and makes art more a mechanism.

With this personal guideline I arrange my POOLcast. Tracks from movie and game soundtracks combine with expressive instrumental pieces, the power of words and of cause synths. Sixty minutes creativity of different kind of artists with very different approaches. A challenging mixture of dynamics ranges in volume, frequencies and time.

Thank you for the first and enjoy the second year.
