Thomas Brinkmann, german producer, founder of Max Ernst, just released via Editions Mego this track ‘Agent Orange’ taken from his new album ‘What You Hear (Is What You Hear)’ (official release May 25th, 2015).

We found the conceptual approach groundbreaking. We liked how the neutrality of the sounds creates a pacifist atmosphere in which the listener, as passive agent, starts unconsciously to counteract any inclinations toward labeling his listening experience..

Brinkmann’s intent is to distance himself from “descriptive musical terms that oppress creative output.” According to the label “Any associations, emotions and reactions are purely in the reasoning of the listener as the artist makes a strong and deliberate move away from intent.”
