For this recording we have dedicated ourselves to the Lo-Fi Manifesto, which provided the basis for a live recording and jam session. The LofiDogma was published by a Swiss cultural foundation and is inspired by the Danish film “Dogma95”.

Nine articles severely restrict the use of technology in music recording and create the charme of home-recorded music. We have adapted the manifesto, shortened it to 8 articles and explicitly allowed a synth. The rules are:

  • The piece must be recorded in one day.
  • All musicians and instruments must be in the same room.
  • A maximum of ten mixer channels may be used.
  • All channels must be mixed together into two channels during the recording.
  • Only equalisers and compressors may be used to influence the sound, synth is allowed!
  • Only one effects device may be used in the mix.
  • Nothing may be cut, added or corrected afterwards.
  • A result must be published.

What you will hear was recorded on the 31st of October 2021 at the Sendeschluss in Vienna.

Barbara Huber (noseflute, violin, xylophone and flute)
