Hommé is an artistic collaboration between German producer Hendrik Vaak and Polish cellist Piotr Piesiak. Hendrik is widely known as one half of Sender Berlin, who released music for Tresor.Berlin.
‘Realization For The Ear’ album Is a concept, inspired and written within the surroundings of a small wooden house, on the edge of Wysokie Lipy mountain in Poland. The album revolves around 8 tracks composed of electronics and recordings from the cello, all balanced into a unique flavour of pulsating dub, ambient and classical influences. The music is driven by refined and subtle dub-techno rhythms which compliment the cello orchestrations and improvisations. The overall listening experience is elevated with the album’s lyrical atmosphere while maintaining a solid relationship with the listener’s body.
Completing the original tracks, the remixes and interpretations cd works as its unique lyrical techno story. Making the trip from the opening aria with Nefeli’s enchanting voice to Ray Kajioka’s haunting remix on “Ein Haufen” and Sender Berlin’s club take on “Drei Haufen” or George Apergis’ nightmarish killer remix and back again with Alex Retsis’ ambient experimentations. A never ending research into the depths of human mind and soul driven by techno sounds.
