Product Notes

This is the first record from Detroit-based Rod Modell (Echospace, DeepChord) on the Plop label. Modell is a classic minimal techno producer and also founder of Deep chord Records in Detroit as an outlet for his "dirty" minimal tracks. Incense & Black Light is an intoxicating journey into darkness, a sonic travelogue through one mysterious night. The tracks represent 10 different scenes from the same night, taking the listener from dusk to dawn. A rainy, neon-lit trip into the seedier side of night temples, red light districts, and opium dens. Psychedelic dub-delays, sub bass, and slabs of alien atmosphere rule here. Otherworldly rainy-night field recordings saturate the tracks. Modell began producing music in the mid-'80s using analog synthesizers and drum machines. To date, Modell has about 60 releases to his credit. Rod's work was focused on electro-acoustic experimentation in the early years, making musique concrète compositions with a 4-track cassette machine and field recordings, then branching into industrial soundscape work. More recent recordings utilize more structure and beats, but still retain the atmospherics that Modell is known for. Mood is of paramount importance in a Rod Modell recording (often created with field recordings). One of Modell's favorite pastimes is making middle-of-the-night music with his portable DAT machine and dummy-head microphone. Incense & Black Light is ideal for 3:00am headphone listening.
