LOUD NEIGHBOR // INTERFERENCE PATTERN // out now on DETROIT UNDERGROUND

Interference Pattern: an overall pattern that results when two or more waves interfere with each other, generally showing constructive and deconstructive interference. 

The title track was the gravitational force that pulled everything together. The simple, optical effect of intersecting lines creating the illusion of movement is what inspired the video collaboration with the Berlin based artist, Marmor. Loud Neighbor went to the studio with the intention to make this vision sound. Serendipitously Ernesto Romeo (Argentinean synthesist Jedi master) came into the picture along with his VCS3 and Sistemas Modulares Núcleo. That grey afternoon in Berlin, the core of Interference Pattern and Kosmonauten was captured in time.

Shortly after Michael Talbot’s book, The Holographic Universe, fell off the shelf. The author states that time and space as we perceive are just illusions. Like the shadows in Plato’s cave, reality as we see it is just a projection of a reality inaccessible to us. The parallel between these ideas and the op-art techniques they were exploring with video defined the concept of this release.
Over the next months these two tracks evolved into eleven, creating an album full of broken techno beats that dip into electro, ambient and house. Field recordings, found footage and Christina's vocals narrate the journey into this holographic universe.
The Interference Pattern came to life on February 2nd at Echo Echo in Berlin. Fellow Detroit Underground artist, Dinamite, opened the space beautifully with a dark and dense atmospheric set. Interference Pattern and Holographic were screened for the first time ever, followed by a live performance within the installation to present the album.
The Interference Pattern video installation is currently on display at Echo Echo, Grüntaler Strasse 9, 13357 Berlin, Germany until March 10. 2018. 
hologram /ˈhɒləɡram/ noun / 1. a three-dimensional image formed by the interference of light beams from a laser or other coherent light source. 1.1 a photograph of an interference pattern which, when suitably illuminated, produces a three-dimensional image.

holographic /hɒləˈɡrafɪk/ adjective / produced using holograms.

Debut screening of Interference Pattern & Holographic videos.
Live, analog visuals by the hands of Marmor accompanied Loud Neighbor.

"To make a hologram, the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of a laser beam. Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beams commingle) is captured on film. When the film is developed, it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines. But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam, a three-dimensional image of the original object appears." - Michael Talbot, The Holographic Universe
