Techno from Melbourne and beyond.

Brisbane native Metapattern has been announced as the next artist up on Melbourne label Machine, with his new EP Unification Algorithm

A lecturer in sound design and live performance for just under a decade, Metapattern has constructed an EP from successive iterations of live performances to create an emotional response to the vibe and energy of the space in which they were initially performed. 

A well-rounded, developed, intricate, and compelling 3 tracker debut release with bonus remixes from Ground Loop and Lateral, Metapattern has made his mark on the scene early. With the patience of an experienced and subtle hand, well-timed rises and falls make for an astute and articulate EP of techno from the leading edge of the blade. 

A standout from the EP, Rotation, takes arpeggiated, stuttering 16th notes and atonal melodies to create a patient and captivating track. Filled with builds, downs, and transitional elements, the downward motion of the bassline takes the listener through their eyes and relaxes the entire body. A clinical effort in effective and memorable techno. 

Unification Algorithm was released on January 15th via Machine, and is available in digital form. Stream snippets of the EP below via Machine’s Soundcloud.

Metapattern aka Peter Trimbacher is an experienced

studio and live producer from Australia’s northern city of Brisbane.

Lecturing in sound design and live performance for just under a decade is the premiere infuence in approach to music

making and performing. Successive iterations of live performance systems have steadily lead from pre-programmed as

sets to increasingly improvised rhythmic elements which are manipulated live in response to the vibe and energy of the

space.

‘Unifcation Algorithm’ is a well rounded, developed, intricate and compelling 3 tracker debut release with bonus remixes

from the masterful Ground Loop and Lateral. These tracks have all of the patience of an experienced and subtle hand.

Well timed rises and falls and cleverly disguised drop outs make for an astute and articulate EP of techno from the lead

ing edge of the blade.

1. Descendance

A congruent, head down, arse up, dance foor fller. Swirling intricate delays, driven and well weighted drums, plenty of

high end appeal derived from metallic rhythm layers. Descendance into a chaotic battle for existence, anticipation, prepa

ration and action building into a heightened tension and subsequent return to continuance. A siren calls at the beginning

as a battle warning and again as the peak of tension is reached.

2. Rotation

Arpeggiated, stuttering 16ths, compelling and alluring atonal melodic notes, patient, willing and captivating techno. Filled

with builds, down lifters and transitional elements. A downward motion of the baseline imitates a relaxation of

the body. A repeating shimmering call tolls like a bell ringing in the increasingly dynamic trip which blossoms into a mind

melting hyper expansion.

3. Osmosis

Recorded live in one take and slightly edited. – Odd length 303 sequence creates a forward moving direction. An imag

ined mixing of cultures in a modern city, the movement from start to to fnish sees each colour dynamically change as if

exploring its existence within the larger unifed experience.

4. Osmosis (Lateral Remix)

Luscious and full drums, well dispersed pads and captivating acid synth line: bouyant, weightless, foating.

5. Descendance (Ground Loop Remix)

Big pads beguile with an invitation into the foat tank before well executed crescendos lay waste to the dream state with

an edgy techno awakening
