about

The Lines EP consists of 5 songs that were made for ski, extreme sports videos and documentaries featuring some of the best riders on the planet. Some of these films have already been released, while others are touring film festivals at the moment. It is a sequel to Alpine Universe’s epic soundtrack named ‘SEDNA’ released last summer.
ALPINE UNIVERSE: “The Lines EP is about living in the moment, being in tune with the elements and not being affected by the trends. It’s about choosing your own “line”. When you pick a certain line down the mountain, you may take risks, but only to push your own limits: it’s not about competition or fashion, it is about beauty and elegance.
Within an all-electronic environment, I have played and recorded real instruments such as guitars,
ancient drums, accordion and strings all integrated into a vast palette of musical genres, from the melodic dubstep of “Waterbender” to the industrial “Hyperion” and the big-beat sounds of “The Klimb”. It is balanced with the softer and earthy mood of “We are Found” and the fun, childlike “Freeski” song. The LINES EP doesn’t follow any recipe.”
The recording of ‘Lines’ was unusually long. Within a music sequencer, every note is quantized and each performance can be altered to perfection, but for this EP, Alpine was looking for a “human touch”. The addition of many layers of acoustic instruments was an incredible amount of work. Moreover, as a film composer, he is attached to storytelling, symbolism and raw emotions. Each Alpine Universe track is crafted to be an epic journey with its own storyline.
