Saturn Strobe

April 28, 2010 queenemily

Liking this video of Pantha Du Prince’s “Saturn Strobe” a lot.  Most minimal techno tends to make me think of modernity–highways (the Autobahn in techno’s DNA), airports (Eno’s ambient influence, probably), futuristic urban landscapes.  But oddly enough as this video proves, this kind of minimal really suits nature documentary images, with the time-lapse photography mirroring the unfolding, ever-evolving loops.

Pantha apparently made a lot of field recordings of the Swiss alps for his most recent album Black Noise, which takes the term “glacial” so often applied to techno to a new level.  Perhaps National Geographic should take note, and throw techno producers some work.
