About

Bit-Tuner presents his new album EXO accompanied by a visual narration by filmmaker Joerg Hurschler.

Bit-Tuner’s new album «EXO» marks a milestone in his work. Focussing on musical storytelling and atmospheric depth, he is releasing a widescreen and beatless opus that invites listeners to dive deep into his sonic worlds. To a great extent, the album was written and recorded towards the end of his 2-year stay in Athens.

Influenced by topics like the social and structural turmoils of the past years, the strong connections between communities and the sensation of being in an economic deadlock, Bit-Tuner wrote an album that urges to be listened to in a (self-)reflective way. It is a call to listeners to listen closely, delve into the sounds surrounding them in the very moment and draw a quiet but firm inspiration from within.

Filmmaker Joerg Hurschler takes the album a step further by creating a 40-minute animated video that will be screened, mixed and live scored exclusively during Bit-Tuner’s concerts in 2020. The film follows the dramaturgy of the album, creating a visual narration based on its atmosphere. It is the story of molecular objects being propelled into a world similar to ours, where they operate, interact and affect their surroundings, creating and leaving behind something new and strange. Joerg Hurschler’s carefully crafted 3D animations add another layer: What is it that surrounds us, and how do we approach and interact with forces that are beyond our (apparent) reach?
The combination of Joerg Hurschler’s visual storywold and Bit-Tuner’s atmospheric music congregate into an audiovisual experience between the disciplines.

Reviews

«There’s a physicality to EXO, however subtle and subliminal: there are textures that make your skin crawl, tonalities that make you twitch, tense, and tingle.»

Aural Aggravation

«Bit-Tuner accomplishes mastery in arousing emotions of trepidation and suspense.»

Wül Magazine

«Atmospheric, obscure, hopeful.»

Saiten Magazin (German)

«Bit-Tuner presents an inward looking, reflective melancholia contrasted with majestic, heavenly layered tracks.»

Nitestylez

«Bit-Tuner's 7th album EXO is an opulent observation of exotic worlds.»

Artnoir (German)

«EXO is a blackening virus, a virtual painting, a cheeping landscape. And: EXO tells a story.»

St.Galler Tagblatt (German)

«Sweepingly widescreen but intimately detailed electronic spaces.»

Boomkat

«Bit-Tuner’s 7th album is an introspective and reflective one, [...] filtering that mood into a pure strain of gentle melancholy that is then expressed in expansive, filmic instrumental electronica.»
