Kassel Jaeger announces yet another album of fearless music with abstracted corners and dynamic leverage like it's no big deal

No big whoop, you guys, but Franco-Swiss electroacoustic composer Kassel Jaeger has announced the September 8 release of a double LP on Edition Mego. It’s called Aster, and it’ll be Jaeger’s second album this year, following a humble, little two-track ambient collaboration with Jim O’Rourke, you may have heard of called Wakes of the Cerulean.

The Paris-based Jaeger hails from an especially long and proud tradition of electroacoustic music; in fact, if you were in an “arguing” mood, you could argue that the entire experimental genre has its roots with Pierre Schaeffer and his pioneering work in musique concrète. Jaeger taps into the legacy of the French school “whilst forging a signature style of his own,” that of “rich deep music replete with dark ambient sonorities swirling amongst intense buzzing tones.” But…I’m sure you’re not in an arguing mood.

Either way, you can casually pre-order the album now through Editions Mego’s website and check out the album track “Rose Poussière” and full tracklisting down below like it ain’t nothing. No big deal. Really.
