As the release of his debut album draws nearer, SOHN has taken time out to film a 4AD Session with filmmaker and photographer Andreas Waldschuetz in his adopted Austria. Recorded in the outskirts of Vienna, SOHN – flanked by his live band Albin Janoska (synths) and Stefan Fallmann (bass) – performed four songs from his album Tremors.
The creative partnership between SOHN and Waldschuetz spans many years, and of late has seen the latter embrace unique techniques to capture SOHN visually, as can be seen in his previous work with the London- born producer – the unplugged live performance of Tremors opener ‘Tempest’ which you can see here.
“I recently rewatched Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey 2001 and was pretty inspired by it” says Austrian filmmaker Andreas Waldschuetz. “Listening to ‘Artifice’ the first thing that popped into my head were neon tubes – I love neon lights. I love its coldness and sterility, and the graphical element that comes with it. All in all a glitchy piece of art.”
