1.234,8 it´s an album from the composer Ulises Conti produced by Ismael Pinkler. The album realized in Berlin and Buenos Aires with an extensive list of instruments and analogic and digital equipment, abords sounds and rhythms of different styles: Ambient, Techno, Experimental, IDM.
Though Ulises Conti's discography is characterized for being very different among each album, this one makes focus over some musical spaces that had not been explored in his previous publications. It goes through electronic language with a wide stylistic palette inside a musical challenging territory, where it seems to govern with rigor the idea of not recognizing the composer behind the work.
It’s name 1.234,8 refers to the speed in which the sound travels: 1.234,8 kilometres per hour. When a ship overcomes it, it breaks the barrier of sound producing a sonorous phenomenon called sonic boom.
The 10 pieces of this album are numerical fractions which sum gives as final result: 1.234,8. Since on all his previous albums, Ulises Conti proposes a hypnotic and narrative tour that reveals while hearing the tracks. This one is his most risky offer.
