Video premiere: Joachim Spieth’s ‘Terrain,’ Stanislav Glazov, δημοσίευση CLOT Magazine [2/11/2022]Marilena Pateraki
German-based artist, DJ and producer Joachim Spieth founded the music label Affin in 2007. Spieth just released his Terrain, his fourth long-player on his Affin imprint. Terrain, forged in deep solitude, reflects on the human relationship with nature. The album title relates to the idea of exploring new facets of the sonic field Spieth usually operates in. My music is also a product of my environment. I regularly go out into nature. Spieth says.
The cover, created on an exploratory tour, is originally a photo, symbolising in an abstract form a summary of what he envisioned in making the album. The principle of experimentation is my concept. I’m fascinated by sculpting sound and pushing its limit with alienation, stretching, and compression. I wouldn’t go for something purely conceptual unless it can move me. He continues.
Artist Stanislav Glazov from Berlin’s LichtPfad Studio produced the video we are premiering today for one of the tracks of the album. Spieth became aware of Glazov’s work through the cooperation he did with Dasha Rush for the Antarctic Takt project: I was intrigued by the landscape in this work, so I felt he might provide a suitable visual narrative for Terrain. Furthermore, I think he understands well what moves me musically. In the past, we already talked about my work and what I value in the process of making music.
Glazov shares that after listening to the album’s first tracks, he got into it. I was in love with it and inspired by the music. The visual ideas came in organically: leisure flight through point clouds and virtual landscapes, as well as minimalistic cartographic elements reacting to the sound; Glazov explains on the initial spark that catalysed the idea.
