After a gap of several years, Adam Jansch has released a new full-length LP. Made under his moniker -otron, Voltronic/Galaxer features a vocalless blend of electronic beats and atmospheres.
Available to stream and download from the -otron Bandcamp, Voltronic/Galaxer can also be purchased on special-edition transparent orange cassette, limited to just 20 copies.
Running on the Wordpress platform, the site is a significant progression from Jansch's previous single-page 'holding' site. Details on the site are available in the Code section.
Employing a locative media engine, the app uses GPS positioning to present audio along the route of the Carnival Trail walk, intertwining a local narrative into the journey. CTC: Isle of Wight is available for free from the iOS App Store.
Adam Jansch is a musician and creative technologist whose practice covers bases across sound, art and programming. He is the mastermind behind electronic tunesmiths Dorian Zoyd and -otron, the open outcome record Futures EP and many more works and code projects.
As son of legendary folk guitarist Bert Jansch, Adam has been involved in music for most of his life, studying music technology and composition at college and university. During this time he created music under the monikers rev forty, Hydletts Zoo and Lost Zoyd; he was also part of laptop group HELOpg, and he played bass guitar on a number of his father's albums.
Cross-media works like Human jukebox x n, nullTV analog and A Sea of Goons were a hallmark of Adam's time gaining a doctorate in Music Composition from the University of Huddersfield between 2008-2012. An interest in iPhone programming flourished during this period also.
