Thrill Jockey is proud to announce the signing of Black To Comm, the solo moniker of German sound artist Marc Richter. Black To Comm's Thrill Jockey debut will be out in early 2019.
A distinctive voice in the experimental music underground, Richter’s output is grounded in elements of ambient, drone and contemporary composition, but reaches far beyond the limits of those genres. Weaving together warped samples, found sounds, vintage synthesisers and acoustic instruments into dense, heavily textured compositions, his music is as ambitious and imaginative as it is succinct. Whirring tape hiss, radio interference and vinyl crackle blur the lines between organic sounds and digital manipulation, adding an unnerving, surrealist quality that underscores all of Richter’s work.
As well as being an acclaimed producer, sampled by the likes of Evian Christ, Richter is also a champion of other experimental acts, running the eclectic Dekorder record label.
