Austrian electronic composer Curd Duca is widely known for his 1990es series of critically acclaimed easy listening 1-5 (Normal) and elevator 1-3 (Mille Plateaux).

After a long break from the studio, Duca has issued part 1 of the Waves series in late 2020 on Magazine. That was in fact his first album since 20 years. The Waves recordings pick up the thread of his 90s work and open up a new chapter. Again, everything changes constantly and all tracks are quite different (soft, rough, melodic, abstract ... ), but complement each other in a surprisingly coherent way to form a singular universe.

Waves 2 takes off into more experimental realms, expanding on Duca's unusual ombination of avantgarde aesthetics and organic qualities.Duca navigates through spaces deep and wide, in a flowing succession of soothing and sometimes elusive moments. The music is elegant, light and transparent, occasionally dark and raw, sometimes veering off into microtonal scales.
