about

Off by German experimental ambient artist Markus Mehr, is the third and final part of a trilogy that includes the critically acclaimed releases In and On.

Off is not only the culmination of Markus Mehr’s trilogy, but it may also be the culmination of his career’s work thus far. The single-track album begins in silence, as a thrumming loop gradually emerges. From there, a beautiful piano refrain is introduced, noise ebbs and flows, threatening to engulf the piece, while field recordings and swooningly transportive synth patterns drift into focus. During its 42-minute runtime, the piece immerses the listener in a dizzyingly beautiful soundworld that’s ever-shifting. Certain passages allude to other sequences and samples in the preceding albums, linking the three albums into a kaleidoscopic mobius strip.

CD Release also available
The limited edition CD release consists of a deconstructed desert scene which appears as a whole through a combination of print substrates, one translucent, the other bright white art paper, sandwiched together in a clear vinyl pocket. This edition is limited to a run of 50 units only. All CD pre-orders come with an immediate download of the album and units will ship on the 7th of February.

about

Markus Mehr Germany

Markus Mehr’s debut, Lava, holds true to its title – it is a dense, steaming surge of glue-thick sound. But, after any destructive force there is new growth. Green shoots of melody arc out of the surface and populate the terrain as new possibilities emerge.
