Steve Hauschildt

Tragedy & Geometry

12" LP

Availability: In stock

$16.99

Quick Overview

2011 release from the Electronic artist. The title Tragedy & Geometry is an ambiguous but subtle reference to Melpomene (Muse of Tragedy) and Polyhymnia (Muse of Geometry), or more specifically the collision/overlap of what they invoke. The opening track is also a direct reference to Polyhymnia, Muse of Eloquence, the painting by the French artist Charles Meynier on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The album is a treatise on the idea that technology is becoming more disposable as it's becoming more accessible, and how this circumstance has a more evident/direct effect on the interpersonal, i.e. relations, with others in the so-called 'Age of Information.' What results is a gorgeous, flowing, floating world of postkosmische musik, Steve Hauschildt's first widely available release, and his first major statement as a solo artist.
