GENER8TION

Elec­tronic house mu­sic is some­thing that should seem alien to those who wear Aude­mars Piguet so when they an­nounced a project with Surkin from Gen­er8ion, it seemed like a mis­match. But in the end, the col­lab­o­ra­tion turned out to be re­ally cool. He spent a cou­ple of days in Le Bras­sus and Val­lée de Joux record­ing the sounds in and around the man­u­fac­ture. “When you get there, there are places that are re­ally si­lent, but then there are ar­eas where they are pol­ish­ing and work­ing with metal and it can get quite loud so that was sur­pris­ing,” he says. Surkin later turned what he had cap­tured into four sub­lime tracks. “The weather was chang­ing so quick, like in a day in Le Bras­sus, you could have like four dif­fer­ent sea­sons. And I re­ally wanted to con­vey that in the tracks,” he adds.
