Modal. What does it mean? Modal could be Jazz, but there’s also a Modal Logic, and there are Modal Verbs of course. But listening to the new release by Substak for Adeptlabel I actually think in Modal Fabric.
Modal is an artificial fiber. It is true that we tend to identify the artificial as something unnatural, false, but “artificial” form Latin artificiālis, which means hand-made or man-made. Art is artificial. Modal is artificial.
It’s usual to think that by means of textile fibers we could produce textile fabrics. But truth is that we could manufacture non-woven fabric. The key is how to weave the fiber. In textiles, fiber are weaved, sewed, tied; in non-woven fabric, fibers are related by means of friction, cohesion, adhesion, etc…
Modal fiber can be used to form part of woven or non-woven materials. Something similar happens with sounds. They can produce music or non-music in their mixing process. There’re rhythms and melodies in “Modal” obviously but what it’s crucially important is how the sonic fibers are fused together until reaching the bottom line.
So Modal is a non-woven musical fabric. It is a sound sheet of porous and absorbent rhythms stuck on with elastic melodies. That is the reason why Modal is highly accurate sonic fibers.
#43. Die Sendung danach. Post-Douglas-Adams, post-42,… SIe geht einen Schritt nach vorn, um dann drei Schritte zur Seite zu machen. Mal ruhig, mal betont repetitiv und laut, mal verwurmt melodisch, mal brummend und röchelnd… Viel Spaß!

An album that contains catchy theme movie music,
electronica, synthesizers, playfulness
great stories, old school times, and melodies that are unforgetable!
Never has the story of the attic’s age been told so colorfully in the bliss of music.
The thematic melodic compositions are compelling and friendly,
while always on the move from unsuspected story lines!
Next to the great music that will make synth pioneer Mister jarre probably skin color turn into yellow,
Stefano Balice also included the so called special FX and movie extra’s!
The only thing that you have to come up with yourself, is the actual visualization of it all,
unless you just want to dance on the grooves, show some skillful moves and enjoy these fine melodies!
The attic age is an album that you shouldn’t want to miss out on,
as it brings a diversity that is bright, catchy, groovable, interesting,
alienating, rhythmic, and above all extremely fun! (and slightly insane!)
Think polar bears, grooving with kraftwerk robots, and mister michel jarre tied up in a corner!
Think deep ambient, that is outrageously beautiful that it will definitely surprise you!
It’s the album of the year!
it’s ‘attic’s age’ by Stefano Balice!
free download, just to proof things actually do get better when they are non commercial!
