»Memory Screen« — is the musical debut by
the producer Prcls on Duzz Down San.
But this isn’t a debut in the traditional sense,
Prcls aka Gerhard Senz has been making
music for quite some time. Up until now the
multimedia-artist has made a name for himself
with his video productions. On this 10”
record Prcls continues his artistic approach,
that is deeply influenced by a fascination
for old material and newest media technology.
Perhaps one could describe his method of
production as recycling: turning old sound
fragments and vague associations into modern
material through sampling, he tells abstract
stories and immerses into childhood
memories. A time in which the television
screen was grainier, everything less sterile
and most importantly far away of HD quality.
The result is a hybrid sound full of dreamy
glitches, broken melodies and wonky drums.
Music that has settled itself between VHSaesthetics
and club culture.
»Memory Screen« is less about aiming for
perfection but more about researching the
niches of the non-perfect, the warmth of
distortion and the beauty of mistakes. In
such a manner beats are created unifying
the old and the new in themselves, that are
a little bit nostalgic but never melancholic
because they are resolutely moving towards
