Memory Hole

Eric Oder’s debut album, “Memory Hole,” released on December 16, 2022, showcases the artist’s talent and understanding of Berlin’s electronic music scene.

Artistic concept

Eric Oder’s debut album, “Memory Hole,” takes its title from George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984”, in which “memory holes” are depicted as a means of censoring information and controlling the past. In the novel, these holes are part of the Ministry of Truth, where documents and historical records are systematically destroyed in order to erase any evidence that contradicts the ruling party’s propaganda.

The concept of memory holes has become a powerful metaphor for the manipulation and distortion of truth in modern society. By referencing this concept in the title of his album, Eric Oder is making a powerful statement about the importance of remembering the past and resisting disinformation to preserve the narrative of history.

The album itself is a sonic exploration of the complex interplay between memory and perception. It combines elements of techno, ambient, and downtempo music to create a richly textured and immersive sonic landscape. The result is an album that is both intellectually engaging and emotionally resonant.

The first single, At War, was produced in early March 2022, just days after the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It fits perfectly with the rest of the album, which photographs a historical moment as a mixture of alienation, bewilderment, and dystopia. Incorporating some references from George Orwell’s 1984 immersed in today’s reality, this album offers a new perspective, encouraging reflection and introspection.
