- Kippschwingungen by Frank Bretschneider
8/10 Phil Staff review, 23 May 2012
Old Frank has been on loadsa respected labels like Raster Noton, Shitkatapult, Underscan, Mille Plateaux, Korm Plastics to name a few. Here's a newie on Richard Chartier's Line imprint. Frank was invited to create music for a Subharchord which is a subharmonic sound generator. The purpose of this release was to mix old technology (said subharmonic sound generator) and new production methods. There was a live concert in 2007 based around this and here we are now where that audio has been re-fondled with some overdubs for your ear digestion. Still with me?
So what you get are eight tracks all called Kippschwingungen which all flow nicely into each other. It's all very Raster Noton with some very clinical cold sounding microbeats which sound like they're almost splitting at the seams. There's some clever use of stereo in the mix as the music shifts from speaker to speaker making you feel a bit mental. It's micro-techno essentially and the word minimal has sprung to mind often as I'm listening to this. There's some nice spacey sound effect in the background and I'm as I'm progressing towards the end of the album it gets way more intense with the beat dissipating into a strange alien like insect noise. It's not for everyone but if you like experimental electronics with clean rhythms then you should check this out.
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
