“429 Hz Formen von Stille” renders a peaceful intimacy with shimmering echoes of acoustic sound objects. While Listening to it, Weber takes us on a journey into the inner landscapes of tranquillity and peace, that we can rarely experience in real life for the last months. With the 429 Hz pure intonation tuning of his Plate Bell set, Weber reconnects us with a deeper basic frequency than our normal western classical music pitches for the well tempered piano which has an agitative effect on our Mind and spirit. The relations within the Singing Bells 429 Hz tuning system is closer to cell communication and all natural and cosmic relations. It is deeply relaxing and we get carried away into a sublime poetic sound poem. Poetic as well as healing.
Hendrik Weber has recorded under numerous monikers over the years, including Glühen 4 and Panthel, yet Pantha du Prince became his most well known and celebrated. Weber aligned with Dial — a Hamburg-based experimental techno label helmed by Carsten Jost, Turner, and Lawrence — to release his Pantha du Prince material, which is characterized by its downcast and dark tone, as well as by its minimal and experimental tendencies.
The soundshaping process has led the Cologne resident to a different approach in his productions over the years not saying that he perceives music completely different now than in the beginning or as he puts it: ‘I don‘t think about a specific club, when I produce a track. I just want it to sound right in its whole.‘ But a change in terms of sound was inevitable for him yet natural as it was part of his personal development. In 2015 Lazaros came up with releases and remixes reflecting his musical approach on Kompakt‘s label KX or Moodmusic leaving footprints in the scene.
Last year saw the artist dropping tracks and EPs on Frankey & Sandrino‘s label Sum Over Histories, KX and his highly anticipated ‘GE EP‘ on Nautilus Rising, that put him under the radar of renowned DJs. His ‘Visitors EP‘ including the track ‘Under The Sun‘ – marked Lazaros‘ start into 2017 and the return to long term friend Sandrino and his Sum Over Histories label. With a release catalogue as strong as Lazaros‘ there is definitely a whole lot more to expect in the future.
