After years of making a name as a contemporary multimedia and performance artist, on November 20th, Berlin's very own Barotti is finally releasing his debut album on acclaimed German label Gomma Records.Barotti, member of PLATOON NETWORK, is throwing a big party to celebrate 'Rising'. At the release event you'll have the chance to get a special limited edition of Rising, painted by 'Sisybots’ - vacuum-cleaning robots which follow seemingly random patterns.
Dubbed the soundtrack for fantastic futuristic fairytales, 'Rising' is a symphonic oeuvre bound by deep electronic sound. Recorded with a full orchestra between Casablanca and Berlin, 'Rising' displays a mix of contemporary classical and improvised jazz rarely found in the electronic genre. Barotti’s experience of travelling the world creating sound installations and art exhibitions, has given him a unique perception as a performer and musician – a visionary, telling stories through sounds.
“Ohne Barottis klaren, rauen, modernen Cinecittà-Sound wäre Berlin eine dunkle, böse Stadt. Thank you!” (Maxim Biller)
“Immer Action. Immer Liebe. Es hört nie auf und wenn doch, dann wünsche ich mir mehr.” (Inga Humpe)
“This is not Techno – this is an opera!” (Peaches)
“Sounds like Woodkid jamming with Nicolas Jaar” (MAG mag)
“In der aktuellen Musikszene, die bald überhaupt keinen Puls mehr drauf hat, macht Barotti Musik für Gefängnisausbrüche.” (Klaus Lemke)
