MARTIJN HOHMANN – THE HOHMANN TRANSFER (CD by De Fabriek Records & Tapes)

The first thing to notice here is this released by De Fabriek Records & Tapes, a label usually reserved for releases by De Fabriek, even when in ancient history they released music by Mark Lane, RTC, Gen Ken Montgomery and The Force Dimension. However, Hohmann belongs to the current rotating cast of members of De Fabriek and helps them out with the design of covers. So, that might explain this. Martijn Hohmann works as a visual and audio artist in Breda, The Netherlands,
and over the years he didn’t release that much as a solo artist. His last one was a limited run 3″CDR, Yunus’ (Vital Weekly 1114), which I enjoyed quite a bit, even when it was all way too brief. This time, Hohmann went to town. ‘The Hohmann Transfer’ is released in two editions. One is a standard digipack, with spot varnish and ‘teacup’ print inside, while the other is a box, about 7″ sized and it contains bigger printed cards, “giant 840 x 960mm poster, an art print, a unique signed and numbered artwork and various undisclosed theme-related artefacts”, which I am still not sure what they are. This is an edition of twenty-copies. The poster contains a map of the moon and that is what this release is about; transfers to the moon. The fateful mission of Apollo 10 and the death of Hohmann’s father; both travel towards the moon, the end of life. And, it is also the end of the line of the name Hohmann, so I am told. What is not said here, on the cover or otherwise, is what kind of
instruments Hohmann is using. Before he was interested in using vinyl as sources, but I would think this is replaced by the use of synthesizers, modular, analogue or software-based (I am not the sort of expert to say anything sensible about that), along with found sound from NASA (well, duh!), field recordings and an ancient recording from 1860 of ‘Au Claire De La Lune’. Throughout the music is slow and peaceful; it is like being a slow spaceship moving through a vast empty and dark night, destination moon, but maybe also destination unknown. It is heavy on the drone side but it is not exclusively just that. In ‘Deemesterhede’ there is some sort of pulse to be noted, next to crackles and drones, that reminded me of Pan Sonic and in ‘Au Claire De Lune’, lots static, vinyl crackles and transmissions. Sometimes the music is all-dark but, again, also not something that he does all over the place. ‘Morphin’ is a ray of light, despite the heavy-handed title. Here we have eight pieces,
sixty-three minutes of pure sonic bliss. If I had such a thing, this would be my pick of the week. (FdW)

MARTIJN HOHMANN – THE HOHMANN TRANSFER, De Fabriek
Toevallig draagt deze Nederlandse multimedia artiest dezelfde familienaam als de uitvinder van een spiraalvormige baan voor ruimtereizen. Dit gecombineerd met de dood (Alzheimer) van zijn vader maakt van dit album een verrassend concept rond het thema loslaten. Na enkele vinylreleases (verpakt in pizzadozen) is het de eerste cd voor Hohmann, die dit keer wel moeite doet om in een speciale verpakking te voorzien. Tweehonderd exemplaren komen in een gelakt digipack met als bijlage een individuele print. Een editie van vijfentwintig reist in een box met uniek artwork, en bijlagen waaronder een kaart van maankraters. De muziek werkt veelal met drones, afgewisseld met NASAsamples (Apollo 11), omgevingsgeluiden en radiosignalen. Maar diep verborgen zitten bassen, die af en toe krachtig tot ontploffing komen. Hoewel hij natuurlijk andere uitgangspunten heeft, zal deze cd zeker fans van Lustmord of Inade bevallen. Een bijzondere track vormt ‘lch Habe Mich Sozusagen Verloren’ met een verwarde stem (van zijn vader veronderstellen we) tegen een achtergrond van gedreun. Er komen (te) veel drone-cd’s op ons pad, maar dit is een juweeltje. (pv)
