Conny Plank article in Frieze Magazine

There’s an excellent new feature in Frieze magazine about pioneering German producer Conny Plank, who worked with John Foxx on Ultravox’s Systems Of Romance. Plank was one of the most innovative producers in electronic music, pivotal in the careers of Neu!, Kraftwerk, Cluster and many more. John is one of the artists interviewed, along with Brian Eno and Michael Rother from Neu! You can read the interview HERE

The Soft Moon vs John Foxx & The Maths – ‘Evidence’

The track ‘Evidence’ was born naturally out of the two artists’ mutual appreciation for one another. Speaking with Artrocker magazine last year, Luis Vasquez from The Soft Moon had this to say of John Foxx’s influence on his own music: ‘Foxx’s Metamatic album is what led me to discover the Arp Odyssey, the most crucial instrument in my collection, and the key synthesizer used in creating my unique sound. So, that album is very important to me and what I do.’ With regard to the collaboration, John Foxx said, ‘The Soft Moon are where minimalism maximises into a new universe of possibilities. It’s an absolute joy for us to work with them.’

‘Evidence’ will be released as a one-sided 7 inch single by Captured tracks on 26 June. It also features on the forthcoming Evidence mini-album by John Foxx & The Maths in early September.

Also, here’s a cool and completely unofficial video for the track:
