Thomas Brinkmann
What You Hear (Is What You Hear)

Following some innovative work in the areas of minimalism, ambiance and techno such as 'Klick', 'Variations' and last years duo with Oren Ambarchi 'The Mortimer Trap', 'What You Hear (Is What You Hear)' sees Brinkmann attempt to further separate the notions of auteurism from the act of creativity by removing intent from the process as much as possible. The tracks are a series of rhythmically self perpetuating structures for the listener to build their own associations and emotional content upon.

A 1000 KEYS

Ahhh, remember the days when you’d gather the family round and listen to the dot matrix printer rattle off your favourite concertos? Thomas Brinkmann Transfers the character of a grand piano into cold 0s and 1s and translates them into repetitive midi sequences of noise and fragments. What is left is far from the piano. Intrigue which follows in the black Midi train of thought.

A Certain Degree of Stasis

Thomas Brinkmann? Yes, I'll hold. The same tone. Forever. That's what our cerebral techno man did on What You Hear (Is What You Hear), a record of focused longform musings that droned, crackled and popped. He follows up with this CD on Frozen Reeds. A Certain Degree of Stasis is a tribute piece to the visuals of Agnes Lux, and so focuses on a variety of differently bold textural work -- it can be towards the overwhelming side of the spectrum or go super minimal. Frozen Reeds have said you can play it "in conjunction" with previous releases if you want... to get your neighbours... knocking...?
