After having presented mostly new faces in the last issues, it's time again to use POOLcast as a platform for our local community of musicians. We love to accompany the development of artists and their visions. That's why we've invited Sven Laux again for the September issue of POOLcast. He has undergone a remarkable transformation in his work in recent years. As an artist you are, like every human being, subject to constant change, this concerns your own work, your sense of self, your own personality and your social environment. If we look at the artist's pieces anachronistically and detached from the person itself, we could accuse the artists of indecision, but if we are able to place the works in the right temporal context, completely new perspectives open up for the viewer.
Sven, who was about to set up his own label Seasides on Postcards when he last appeared on POOLcast, now has three wonderful CD releases in his catalogue and the fourth one is about to happen. Sven Laux is continuously working on his vision of the fusion of melodic ambient, emotional drones, fragmented acoustics and modern classical music. The mixtape that Sven made available to us was created a little more than two years ago and shows impressively that apparent indecisiveness often turns out to be exactly the opposite. At that time Sven was still well known from his Minimal Techno releases on relevant labels like 31337, UNOIKI and Sleep is Commercial, but already in this recording his future change seems to manifest itself in a magical way. Melodic fragments, emotional soundscapes, granular textures and a clear vision, which at that time might have been called indecision, but today is quite the contrary..
Art is more than pure work.
