Ulrich Troyer

Songs For William

Deep Medi Musik

Released: 13th August 2011 | 8 track dubstep album

Songs for William is the first in a trilogy of experimental dub projects from Ulrich Troyer and Deep Medi Musik. Ulrich Troyer was born in Innsbruck and raised in Tyrol Austria, he studied Architecture and Music at University and now resides in Vienna where he lives and works as a freelance artist and musician. Ulrich has been producing music and experimenting with electronics for over 10 years on various projects that include soundtracks for movies, dance productions, exhibitions and sound installations. Since 2005 Ulrich has also been performing live as a member of the Vegetable Orchestra. 'Songs For William' sees Ulrich explore his love for dub music and the experimentations of pioneers such as King Tubby, Sound Dimension and Rhythm and Sound alongside the influences of Mulatu, Tony Allen and the psychedelic sounds of Selda. To accompany this release is the first part chapter of a comic novel featuring the main character William (A guitar effect pedal!) and his journey! All analogue synthesizers, effects, stompboxes, samplers, guitars, percussion and melodica played, programmed, recorded and dubbed by Ulrich Troyer at the 4Bit Studio Vienna.

"The first in a trilogy for Deep Medi Musik, Songs for William sees Austrian producer and artist Ulrich Troyer linkering with the genre template of dub. William is the name of the guitar effect pedal whose journey is chronicled in the comic novel accompanying the release. The dub hallmarks you’d expect are here - spring-reverbing drum hits, offbeat chords, spacey sound effects and an improvisasional attitude to production. The strange, musique concrete-like soundworld of early analogue dub tech is noticed and amplified. But Troyer does build something discretely unique with the palette by keeping the speed relatively high, stirring together a wider range of components and trimming the ends off the samples, all with a nimble hand and a light heart. The result is a sort of microdub, stuffed with cute details and delighting in the messy noises of the genre’s early origins."
