Pantha Du Prince has shared 'Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen' the second full song the producer has made available from his anticipated album The Triad out Friday 20 May via Rough Trade / Remote Control. It is the first Pantha Du Prince solo album since 2010’s breakout Black Noise.
The track, whose title translates to 'Woman In Moon, Stars Racing,' begins with characteristically beautiful shimmering ambience and seemingly scattered bits of percussion that coalesce into an addictive, ecstatic beat. The mysterious arpeggiated synth line that emerges from the ether is representative of Weber’s experiments with analog synthesizers throughout the album.
On the song’s conceptual genesis Weber said "This album is about concrete utopia: how does The Triad affect our direct interaction, and how can we have a better life in the moment and not in a future vision? I came to the conclusion that it's about social interaction with other human beings; otherwise we are just lost.
And the Fritz Lang movie Frau im Mond is basically about a concrete utopia as well. You have certain secret societies that control the world, and then you have the mad scientist who has the secret formula to a rocket engine.
But the funny thing is, for the premiere of the film they built a rocket, and this rocket model was then used as a real early rocket. And this is what I think happens a lot today, without the people recognising."
