Born in 1974 in Kassel, Berlin based German DJ/producer Efdemin aka Phillip Sollmann recently turned toward microtonal composition. His Harry Partch-inspired Monophonie (2017) was performed at the Ruhrtriennale and Berlin Volksbühne. His 2019 album New Atlantis was inspired by Francis Bacon’s unfinished 17th century novel about a fictional island devoted to social progress.
