HAUNTER RECORDS, HALLOW GROUND
As a monicker, S S S S is an exercise in difference and repetition, reducing swiss producer Samuel Savenberg’s name to a string of basic elements— all equal and different. Repetition as a mean of conceptual transport and physical transformation is integral to all forms of expression that aim for a wider understanding of reality within the realm perception, as it is to the reproductive process of knowledge itself.
With “Just Dead Stars For Dead Eyes“ Samuel Savenberg dismissed his usual technoid-industrial uniform and traded it for a dense assembly of droning ghosts, drifting rhythmic drills, disintegrated field recordings and faraway resonant harmonics. It represents an utter and extemporary deviation from the main course of S S S S’ noise explorations, though also an essential achievement, one sure to reverberate into his future production.
S S S S performs his variation of a new kind of Industrial in clubs from Milan over Berlin to Moscow. Throbbing Gristle’s, SPK’s or Haus Arafna’s audience can put their minds at rest: A new generation of uncompromising artists has been provided for.
Besides S S S S, Samuel Savenberg studies Music and Media Arts in Berne, writes about Club Culture for Swiss zweikommasieben magazine and runs Edition Gris, a small vinyl label for contemporary occult music.
