zeitkratzer & Carsten Nicolai (zeitkratzer records)
"This CD documents the cooperation between zeitkratzer and Carsten Nicolai, started nearly a decade ago; a cooperation between an avantgarde ensemble and a non-academic electronic musician. The electronic music of Carsten Nicolai - partly being of even aseptic clearness and quality – suddenly becomes sensual and physical through zeitkratzer’s instrumental sounds.
Inversely, zeitkratzer sounds different too: in „5 min“ the musicians play only electric sound generators: humming of plugs, the peeping of the synchronised zeitkratzer-clocks, white noise, TV cheeping at 10 kHz. „Synchron Bitwave“, the latest piece is the most sensual and warmest; no other sounds than a small third and its electric derivates, finally leading to high, dabbed string spiccati. While „c1“ transfers electronically conceived asymmetrical loops into a 19/16th rhythm. A strange undertow results, partly because of the pieces’ grounding with merging split sounds. Here, Carsten Nicolai virtually becomes metaphysical, perhaps even romantic…" (

Hört sich doch sehr interessant an...

Robert Henke, die eine Hälfte von Monolake, veröffentlicht das Album Atom/Document!
"This CD/LP contains the music written for the Atom performance by Christopher Bauder and Robert Henke. But since the performance is based on lots of spontaneous interaction between Christopher who controls the height of the balloons in the matrix, and me who controls the LED patterns by triggering various musical elements, each performance is different, and the recording only serves as a document of one possible scenario.

The music for the performance has been created according to a few basic principles: there are floating elements, that are not percussive and have no direct connection with the LEDs in the balloons. There are percussive elements, where in each piece each percussive element has to trigger an LED. And there are no percussive elements allowed that do not trigger LEDs. This strict conceptual approach made it possible to come up with impressive music and LED movements in a very limited period of time in 2007, before the first performance. Also each piece contains only four channels of percussive sounds, a deliberate limitation which made it possible to control the audio part of the performance entirely via a hardware MIDI controller box.

In early 2008 I decided to release the music of the performance on CD. I wanted to create more attention for the performance, I wanted to expose the photos of it, and I felt the musical effort deserves to be conserved too.
However, when working on it, I more and more came to the conclusion that in order to work without the massive visual stimulation, the music needs to be much more sophisticated and composed. I spent a lot of time refining each detail of the sounds and the patterns. Some of the pieces I rebuilt from scratch, and in some cases I went in a totally wrong direction and came back to a much earlier version after weeks of unsuccessful attempts.

The result is the most 'serious' album I created so far, and it marks a new coordinate in my musical universe, with its combination of noisy and rough industrial sounds, processed piano, and distant drones.

The album has been composed, mixed and edited entirely in Ableton Live 7, using many instances of the Operator synthesizer, recordings of a very loud and very big high-voltage transformer and a recording of some piano notes.
The vinyl edition is a heavy 180 gramm pressing in a luxury gatefold cover with full color print."

Man darf gespannt sein!

Fog and Noise

KTL - IV (Editions Mego, Daymare Recordings, Inoxia Records)
"And how things have evolved. Long awaited new album by the ongoing duo of Stephen O’Malley and Peter Rehberg.
KTL’s first full length release that is not commissioned work for theatre or film, showcases their approach to composition and structure as a highly active live band. Whereas the ‘Kindertotenlieder’ trilogy of 1, 2 and 3 were blurred washes of fog and noise polished in by ambient shine, IV is a more direct and demanding beast, referencing such diverse projects as; volume era Swans, Mecca period Cabaret Voltaire, phase one Wire, Fushitsusha and This Heat.....
Developed and composed over the spring and summer of 2008, KTL brought the material to Tokyo the following September and worked with Jim O’Rourke at the desk & controls, IV is a stunning new direction and great addition to both artists' already impressive canon.
The opening and shortest track, ‘Paraug’ is a dark shadow of previous KTL sounds, with its blowtorch riffs and sub bass rumbles. This leads the way for the album's monster ‘Paratrooper’. Over 21 minutes of driving bass pulse interwoven with razor sharp guitar from O’Malley & synth and organ blasts from Rehberg. Atsuo, from Japanese top-rockers Boris, glues it together with his arhythmic and punishing drumming. ‘Wicked Way’ is a breezy upbeat number, which if we were that way inclined would be the album's single. ‘Benbbet’ on the other hand is whole different ball game: a distant guitar loop is joined by slamming No Step beats and making way for a guitar riff to straddle all valleys and computer bass rattles. Possibly KTL’s most detailed recording. ‘Eternal Winter’ is an exercise in black frozen resonant harmonics, whereas ‘Natural Trouble’ is a slowly evolving twister of a track which is both spontaneous and focused.
KTL IV is issued on CD for the world (except Japan) on Editions Mego.
Daymere will be releasing the Japanese version, with Inoxia issuing a special vinyl edition." (Editions Mego)

Release: 9. Jänner 2009
