Simulated Music marks something of a departure from my previous electronic music, the sound materials allowed much more freedom to ‘do their own thing’, left to unfold with minimal intervention. This is mirrored in a level of creative detachment from the music, which, in contrast to almost all my previous work, does not emanate from either religious, psychological or emotional concerns.
In total lasting just under an hour, the nine ‘Simulations’ are, both in terms of duration & content, a diverse collection, encompassing largescale, thundering noisescapes & soft, intimate whispers, wide clusters & narrow drones, piercing high pitches & powerful deep bass surges. Ever shifting & transforming, they are together suggestive of the worlds of noise, drone & ambient, yet stand apart from them all, occupying an abstract sonic space that is strange yet beguiling.
Simulated Music is dedicated to the memory of Roland Kayn.

Probably the greatest album of all time. A groundbreaking 6 and 1/2 hours of the musical progression of dementia. Truly beautiful and utterly terrifying. It makes you appreciate your sanity and life so much more after listening. Jacqueline Jones

*In this sprawling audio "cycle", Stephan explores analogue sounds and drones that are peaceful, subtle and abstract at times. Like any large compendium, one must revisit it time and again to capture all that is exquisitely presented. If resolute, there are many beautiful rewards to discover here.
Best w/ headphones... Enjoy!
