sound-magic’s death ray destroys the vortex and has union with infinity
Guitarist Tim Gane and drummer Joe Dilworth spent years together recording and performing in the critically lauded kosmische pop group Stereolab before forming instrumental electronic trio Cavern of Anti-Matter in the winter of 2012.
Joined by synth player/general electronic manipulator Holger Zapf, the Berlin-based group quickly developed a Krautrock-indebted sound that relied heavily on treated instruments and experimental electronics. The mini-album Blood Drums was recorded completely in mono to analog tape, then digitally altered to replicate stereo. The album saw release on double-vinyl on the Grautag label in 2013; that year, the 12" You're an Art Soul EP also appeared on Associated Electronic Recordings. Two more short releases, 2014's Interlude Music and Total Availability & the Private Future, arrived before 2016's official debut album, Void Beats/Invocation Trex, which featured collaborations with Mouse on Mars' Jan St. Werner, Sonic Boom, and Deerhunter's Bradford Cox. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
