"To let noise into the system is a fine art, both in cybernetic terms and in terms of making music, too."
5 1 1 5 9 3 is the first full-length album release of Vienna based artist Electric Indigo, who started DJing in the late 1980s, worked at the legendary Hard Wax record store in the early 1990s, and effortlessly manages to entertain the dancing crowd at Berghain as much as the contemporary music avant-garde at Wien Modern. 5 1 1 5 9 3 combines influences of both worlds into a consistent and coherent album. Crystalline metallic objects collide, embedded into fractured endless spaces, sparse rhythmical syncopations shaping grids, holding sonic particles in place. Rare vocal transformations inject a human touch. 5 1 1 5 9 3 offers a unique universe, full of color and light, partially flirting with current club music and at other times diving deep into sublime sonic areas.
The album was released on Imbalance Computer Music in 2018
I can't put into words how it feels to listen to this album. The sensation of increasing anxiety and dread throughout the stages is unique. It makes me want to keep listening and theorizing about what's happening in the songs, especially in the post-awareness stages. D0DGAMES
