Kilchhofer - Dersu
Cat. no.: Marionette04
Format: 12” Vinyl EP (180g) + Digital
Release Date: May 2016


Marionette wanders through the polyrhythms and shifting harmonics of Benjamin Kilchhofer's 'Dersu'.
This is an expedition into modular synthesis and physical modelling, where patches become complex instruments, and the instruments become music. Kilchhofer composes the 4th Marionette instalment, enveloped in a film of spring reverb and tube distortion.


The Ransom Note
"The jungle floor vibrated under the weight of the noise..."

Fact Magazine
"Kilchhofer grows a modular forest on his brilliant Akira Kurosawa-inspired Dersu EP."

Inverted Audio
" aesthetic in which the organic and technological sound entangled or embedded in one another."

" a drum circle located deep in the uncanny valley."

Resident Advisor
"Kilchhofer has conjured a world that follows its own strange rules."
