Yann Tiersen has shared a new remix by Laurel Halo, and announced details of a 12” collating reworkings from his 2021 album Kerber. Kerber Remixes will be available on strictly limited edition white vinyl and digitally via Mute on 26 August 2022.
The remix 12” includes remixes and reworkings from Terence Fixmer, Beatrice Dillon, Laurel Halo, Iku Sakan and two remix competition winners, Sote and Simon Sky.
Listen to Laurel Halo’s remix of ‘Kerlann’:
While Kerber saw Tiersen incorporating modular synthesis and sampling into the recording process, his follow up album, 11 5 18 2 5 18, was born from further experimentation in the studio as the artist prepared for a performance at Berlin’s modular and synthesiser festival, Superbooth. Using samples as his source, Tiersen has resampled, reprogrammed and recomposed existing audio to create entirely new tracks unrecognisable and decontextualised from their original versions. The album completes a story he started Kerber but where that took a more nuanced and subtle approach, 11 5 18 2 5 18 brings the listener into new sonic spaces.
This new remix 12” bridges the worlds of Kerber and 11 5 18 2 5 18, pushing the tracks further onto the dancefloor and opening them up to new processes.
