Surgeon presents music ‘From Farthest Known Objects’ on new album
The release marks the analogue techno master's seventh full-length release as Surgeon
Anthony Child is set to release his seventh album under his Surgeon alias on January 29.
'From Farthest Known Objects' serves as the follow up to 2011's 'Breaking The Frame', the album that got snooker legend Steve Davis into techno.
Surgeon has taken inspiration from outer space for the record, due out on his Dynamic Tension imprint, with all the tracks named after distant galaxies following consultation with astrophysicist Andrew Read.
In a post on SoundCloud, Surgeon wrote: "While exploring new production techniques using old and unlikely hardware, the results were so unusual that I really had the sense that these pieces of equipment didn't actually create these sounds, rather they were in fact some kind of elaborate reception device that allowed me to tune into transmissions from Distant Galaxies.
"The music I could hear was actually the received transmissions of Pop Hits from those Distant Galaxies that were being played on their radio stations. I quickly recorded all that I could before losing the transmission.
"I consulted with Dr Andrew Read, the astrophysicist with whom I recorded Guitar Treatments in 1999. He has worked on the discovery of the most distant galaxies and astronomical objects in the Universe. Together we came up with a possible list of where these musical transmissions may have come from."
The album's seventh track 'BDF-3299' is streaming on SoundCloud now. Check it out along with the full tracklist below.
