TIN MAN (Acid Test) U.S.A
ARGAND PLANE live
THE TOXIC TWINS
MUSIC: HOUSE / TECHNO
從Tin Man的音樂中你會發現他在電子音樂界的位置不受侷限，遊走於ambient與古典樂，再到house跟techno之間，雖然他的音樂明顯歸類於地下電子，但同時也能聽出流行搖滾文化帶給他的影響。文學也是Tin Man的重要啟發來源之一，Beat generation的代表作家William Burroughs和撰寫The Great Gatsby的F. Scott Fizgerald都是他創作專輯的靈感來源。
Tin Man最為人所知的莫過於他獨特使用Roland303的方式來重新定義acid，他玩弄出的acid不尖銳刺耳，彷如高溫機械般一步步融化你的腦漿。Tin Man在Absurd所發行的個人第六張專輯Neo Neo Acid可說是最好的例子，這張專輯也被譽為他目前至今最完整、豐富的音樂作品。
Tin Man is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Over the last decade now the man born Johannes Auvinen has explored an ever evolving sound palette that touches on house, techno and ambient. Much like his namesake’s character in the Wizard of Oz, he has been on a mission to find his true self, except this Tin Man’s medium has been music.
Most recently the California born producer and live act has been responsible for reinvigorating the acid scene with his unique and cerebral manipulations of real Roland 303s. His tracks have been laced with slow and subtly shifting patterns that are infused with a very real machine soul and exude captivating warmth. The finest proof of this yet was his slowly unfolding and tender LP, Neo Neo Acid on Absurd: it was his sixth full length to date and was arguably his most coherent and comprehensive work.
Taking influences from “Chicago and radio pop rock as well as melancholic UK electronics and Sahkö” Tin Man’s extensive discography also explores less sublime and seductive sounds on labels like Keys of Life and Acid Acid, and plenty of raw sonics on albums like Scared. He is also part of The Acid Symphony Orchestra (a live super group that features artists playing on ten 303, 707 and 808) and has turned out a standalone neo-classical and ambient work, Vienna Blue, which proves he does so much more than pure dancing music.
