Avbvrn is a producer, composer and DJ born in California and based in Frankfurt. Combining a history of digital production with study of composition under Claus Kühnl at the Hoch Conservatory, Avbvrn’s music is situated at the intersection between experimental, club and contemporary classical music.
Avbvrn is a formidable reworker—his output thus far includes several uniquely twisted edits and remixes. On Self/Similarity he turns his editing tools on himself: five prototype tracks were written as source material and then sampled and processed into five new tracks. The EP’s compositional self-reflexivity exudes solipsistic sonics rich with oddly stretched textures and highly sculpted artefacts. As a fully formed second iteration of a previous body of original work, the EP implies infinite further iterations…
Monochromatic, otherwordly and at times claustrauphobic, Self/Similarity is a compelling insight into Avbvrn’s conceptually inquisitive and singularly dank music practice.
