*please note - due to the limited nature of the release, just one copy of "Umleitung" is available per person.
Handstitched* is pleased to announce a new EP by Yair Etziony. "Umleitung" - the follow-up to "Metamorphosis". "Umleitung features three pieces composed on a modular system, combining both the Roland SH101 & MC202.
All tracks were composed, mixed and played by Yair Etziony at the Handwerker Raum Studios, Berlin, Germany.
Mastered by Manes at Salz Mastering.
In the German language the word, Umleitung means diversion or detour, which in English means; a long or roundabout route that is taken to avoid something or to visit somewhere along the way, just like the release "Metamorphosis", I wrote "Umleitung" when winter was changing into spring, unlike last year, winter was cold but kind of sunny, and spring started in a vital and strong way. This changed the sound of the release, its less ominous, and much more optimistic and cosmic than "Metamorphosis".
This EP was written and played on a modular system using as many VCAs and LPGs as possible. I also used two vintage synths: Roland SH101, Roland MC202 mainly for their excellent sequencers and filters. After tracking those I used some polysynths and percussion-synth plugins.
Yair would like to thank the following people: Sivan, Tubi, Barry, Noam, Sam, Tim, Arik, Martin, Daniela and Alec for the support, help when making this release.
