Mama Matrix Most Mysterious was made with vintage Buchla and Serge systems.
Type is releasing an album of “tense, rhythmic minimalism” by Italian artist Andrea Taeggi.
Titled Mama Matrix Most Mysterious, the album is an exploration of rhythm and timbre produced entirely with old modular systems, namely the Buchla and Serge.
Better known as one half of Opal Tapes duo Lumisokea with Koenraad Ecker, Taeggi describes the process of making the album as having to “adapt” to the systems rather than mastering them.
You can get a preview of the album with a stream of the title track below, which perfectly encapsulates the label’s description of the album as “decades of beat-driven electronic music” driven through his machines to create “a record of chattering bass-heavy experiments.”
The album is out on September 3 via Type (a label independently operated by FACT’s John Twells).
