about

Originally recorded in 1995 and released on Mille Plateaux a year later, this album was the first time I had the chance to work with a computer system which allowed me to "edit" my music. Before this, I was recording everything direct to tape in one take. The deep sound of some of these tracks reminded me about how I felt at that time. I recall that my affair with club culture had begun to feel shallow and a bit meaningless. I think the recordings on this album demonstrate that I was opening up to the realisation that my music had a lot more to express than simply being "banging".

An interesting fact about this album and its special place in some peoples' hearts; almost 18 years after its initial release, Gaspar Noe requested "Cancion Sintetica" for the soundtrack to his movie "Enter The Void", an unsettling cinematic masterpiece exploring psychedelics and the eternal cycle of life and death.

The remastering of "Specific Momentific" is quite different to the original - an improved song order and massively improved overall sound. Many thanks to all the crowd funders who made this remastering work possible.

"I can remember when I heard Specific Momentific (1996), first time I thought about techno in the same terms as classical music Cristian, you are a true visionary!!" - Bjørn Nesby
