In September 2011, Hinterlandt asked fellow Australian artists Broken Chip, Puzahki, Afxjim, Lawrence English, Telafonica, Godswounds, Simo Soo, and Seaworthy to create their own music based on a handful of tiny sound snippets that were taken from the original Hinterlandt track Motion.
The open briefing and limited source material led to a compilation that is fresh, surprising, and decidedly experimental in its nature. While glimpses of the source material peak through here and there, the results are as diverse as the artists themselves. From driving electronic beats via industrial drones and ambient sounds to psychedelic prog rock – Through the Motions is a pro-diversity statement showing what artistic creativity can achieve.
Hinterlandt is deeply honoured by the results and would like to thank all the artists involved as well as Feral Media for their efforts, their resourcefulness and their patience. Furthermore, thanks go out to Istanbul-based photographer Refik Anadol for the great cover image.
The original Hinterlandt track Motion is part of the album Migration Motion Movement, released in September 2011 by Tenzenmen and Bird’s Robe Records.
