Whatever rise to the synthesizer came later on in the 00's is hardly of any concern to Greh Holger and his Hive Mind project. Having released private press cassettes of solo synth works as far back as 2002, Hive Mind exists as enigmatic in world of new-jack synthheads and the tidal wave of "neo kosmische" that goes with it by flying far under it's radar.
No blisscapes to be found here. No soaring latched arpeggios, no cosmic vistas. Not a single melody. Ancestral ruin in its clearest and most focused presentation. The brutality of the Earth and the harsh reality of all that it holds. Unknowable sounds - that of the dawn of the Earth, or perhaps the sound of its demise. A toxic swamp of chemicals and mutated organisms left behind long after man has wiped himself away for good. Field recordings from the end of the world. While others are racing for the stars, Hive Mind's tetonic plate shifting and brutal rumble will give you a brand new way to look at modern synthesizer composition with a focus on textural sounds and cyclic frequency registers.
