Stefan Gubatz // Telrae
Format // CD
This album was not inspired by Brian Eno's "Music For Airports", Stefan Gubatz remarks/ hisses when he talks about his debut album on Telrae. His album is the result of waiting room situations and undoubtfully it is an atmospheric piece of music which is based on landscapes of sounds, abstract beats... altogether creating an intense atmosphere not unlike his track "Transistor" on Telrae 009. Stefan has recorded two 10"s on Telrae so far and several remixes for the label filed mostly under the genre of dub techno. This album exceeds this genre categorisation but also keeps elements and key aspects of deepness. That his airport inspired concept failed to materialise is another story we will turn to later...

Originally the project was triggered of by the idea of making music in a comfort and safety zone while waiting for a delayed plane. As everyone knows, these hermetically sealed zones defy time... and time altogether gets a different meaning or better time itself is deprived of its meaning

hence there is no such thing as time anymore. In such a place, and there is no such other place in the world, Stefan started to write his 10 minute a piece epic trax, 8 different tracks. But the concept came to an bitter end.

Intrigued by the quietness and also the coldness (it was winter) all of this reminded him of his home town in Nordfriesland/ North Sea "always cold always bad weather" as he puts it... the connection to the North Sea was easily made... and since the concept of writing music in comfort zones had to be abandoned after delays where too small to write music in, hence 2-3 tracks were recorded in his home town Husum. The intention of the album is nothing more nothing less than to create an atmospheric intensity. The atmosphere is on the surface of all of the trax very similar but when you listen to them the music is very different. The whole album was recorded two years ago and took him a year to finish... and inspired him later to start with his 10" inch releases on label Telrae.
