We are proud to present the video for the title track of our new album, Interference Pattern, that just dropped on DETROIT UNDERGROUND.

Interference Pattern: an overall pattern that results when two or more waves interfere with each other, generally showing constructive and deconstructive interference. 

The Interference Pattern video installation is currently on display at Echo Echo, Grüntaler Strasse 9, 13357 Berlin, Germany until the end of February. 

Loud Neighbor is a gear based, techno live act from planet Earth formed by Christina Steel and Martín García Blaya that has been sequencing machines together throughout the Americas and Europe for 9 years and counting. Upon leaving Brooklyn to set base in Berlin the duo started working on Interference Pattern, Loud Neighbor's second album and latest mutation.

The title track was the gravitational force that pulled everything together. The simple, optical effect of intersecting lines creating the illusion of movement is what inspired the video collaboration with the Berlin based artist, Marmor. Loud Neighbor went to the studio with the intention to make this vision sound. Serendipitously Ernesto Romeo (Argentinean synthesist Jedi master) came into the picture along with his VCS3 and Sistemas Modulares Núcleo. That grey afternoon in Berlin, the core of Interference Pattern and Kosmonauten was captured in time.

Shortly after Michael Talbot’s book, The Holographic Universe, fell off the shelf. The author states that time and space as we perceive are just illusions. Like the shadows in Plato’s cave, reality as we see it is just a projection of a reality inaccessible to us. The parallel between these ideas and the op-art techniques they were exploring with video defined the concept of this release.

Over the next months these two tracks evolved into eleven, creating an album full of broken techno beats that dip into electro, ambient and house. Field recordings, found footage and Christina's vocals narrate the journey into this holographic universe.

The Interference Pattern came to life on February 2nd at Echo Echo in Berlin. Fellow Detroit Underground artist, Dinamite, opened the space beautifully with a dark and dense atmospheric set. Interference Pattern and Holographic were screened for the first time ever, followed by a live performance within the installation to present the album.

Live, analog visuals by the hands of Marmor accompanied Loud Neighbor.
