Obscurum is a two man outfit based in Fuerth, Germany. Formed by Roland L. and D. Blaze, who have collaborated musically together since 1995. They also own the following labels: E-Com, Exalt and Seico Corp. Known for their preference for minimal Detroit Techno music, they command international credibility. Dark electronics and pumpin techno with an industrial tinge. Several releases on E-Com/Exalt/Seico Corp. unite their typical style of production which puts the mechanical part of their music in the front row. Functionality without any compromise.
In the Tape Studio, one of the most essential processes is the combination of one sound with another, or with many others to produce a new, composite sound. This process known as additive synthesis, is made possible from a digital and analog source. This process can have two results: (1) a single, more complex output in which the various input signals have lost their individual identities while creating a new sound (more or less analogous to the blending of colors); or (2) a texture with various individual components occurring simultaneously but distinctively. Since 1996, the Mechanisms Industries Tape Studio has been guided by composer Fanon Flowers and several anonymous associates.
