POOLcast 064 - ANN

The March edition of our POOLcast series is provided by ANN. One of the founders and integral part of The POOL Berlin, as well as curator of POOLcast. ANN has been exploring the different layers of electronic music for about 20 years now. A period of time in which you constantly search, find and comprehend yourself anew between different genres, styles, media and times.

POOLcast 064 could be titled "Between". Not only did his connection with electronic music originate between two formative decades in Berlin. ANN also witnessed many electronic music styles, media and developments that shaped the zeitgeist of the time. Never simply doing what was in the manual or what the past demanded, he always tried to look between the shell and the core. In the space between experiencing music and making music, an area is created which makes room for something new. ANN creates and experiences his music simultaneously. This is not limited to the temporal moment, but also to the use of media and instruments used for listening and making music. When the boundaries between generating and reproducing sounds become blurred, a cycle between experiencing music and generating music is formed. The space between action and reaction leads to the fact that it is not clear where the beginning and end of this creative cycle. It is often impossible to tell whether ANN is listening to music or making music. A disadvantage for outsiders, because if they are not there live, they do not often get to enjoy his work.

Therefore, we are of course even more pleased that ANN again provides us with one of his works. This time a mixtape that was created from his constantly growing vinyl collection. Somewhere between Jazz, Ambient and Musique Concrete.
