Dotflac Time is hardly distinguishable when we dive into the two pieces of this album, losing us in its eerie and psychedelic soundscapes.

Based on warm and blurry drones in the background, musical events occur every so often, reverberated and stretched through time, crossing our paths without troubling it.

An hallucinatory travel between the unseen dimensions, where we are transformed into a pure beam of light wandering in a magma of ever-changing colors.

A stunning work taking us far away. Favorite track: MARSEN JULES AT GRM PART 2.

Following his highly acclaimed album „Beautyfear“, which is still featured besides Trentemöller and Bonobo in the top-ten of german chill out-charts, sound poet Marsen Jules bridges the time with the release of a conceptual mini album on his own Oktaf Records. The two tracks on the 35 minutes long album were created during a two week residency in the legendary GRM-Studios at Radio France in paris. The „Groupe de Recherches Musicales“ is an institute for the exploration of electroacoustic music. It was founded 1958 by composer Pierre Schaeffer, one of the main protagonists of the so called „Musique Concrète“, a musical movement that focused on recorded sounds and sound manipulations as a basis for compositions. Therefore the artists used tape recorders and record players as their instruments and widened the musical horizon, which till then was only defined through classical known instruments. Especially these ideas of defining every acoustic event as possible music and the approach to explore the individual universe of such a sound, have always been a big inspiration for the music of german Martin Juhls. Therefore it was a big honor for the artist to be able to work at this legendary space for two weeks in 2009. For the two tracks created at GRM Jules dives deeply into the level of subatomic sound-particles. Clusters of string crescendos emerge from a nearly psychoacoustic sound-wall of warm drones in which they disappear with ultra long fade outs and reverbs. A touching work - which has the quality to let the listener drown into it completely.
