429Hz Formen von Stille CD
429Hz Formen von Stille« is the first album that Pantha Du Prince is releasing under his given name, Hendrik Weber. And here, the music that has been developed from an entire body of work sounds like it has been reduced to its essence. A substance, an elixir, a remedy—that’s slowly but constantly moving forward. After going all the way with sound and light and pushing club spaces to their limits for more than a decade as Pantha Du Prince, Weber’s music is now focused on resiliency within the space of the body. The music wants nothing more than to calm and heal, especially in the midst of the pandemic.
This album, Hendrik Weber’s most ambiguous work to date, was created with acoustic instruments that were played live. The results are light patterns of frequencies and specters. A flowing interplay of overtones and a sweeping undertone at a rate of 429 Hz. Paradoxical syntheses of fantasy and rationality provoke a persistent crackling between the music and ego. Pantha Du Prince had already been more deeply invested than others in the conviction that nature is a musician that can listen and take possession of itself, and now humans and nature share the roles of transmitter and recipient on the album of Hendrik Weber.
