CD + Digipack w/ 12pp Booklet | F.0026.0001/Bleep 10
Komet's precise minimalism meets Bovine Life's chaotic electronics resulting in 17 tracks of economic sonic tapestry.
In addition to co-running Germany's influential Raster-Noton label/collective, Komet [Frank Bretschneider] has released works on a number of respected labels worldwide, including: Mille Plateaux, 12k and Raster-Noton. He describes his work as follows, "I like precise, short, impulsive sounds; clean sine waves and white noise, which are both simple and clear."
Bovine Life [Chris Dooks] has been collaborating musically through a 56k modem via his web-based label Social Electrics since 1999. His past collaborators have included, among others, Janek Schaeffer, Alku and The Third Eye Foundation. His album 'Social Electrics' was released on BiP-HOp in 2001. He describes his work as follows, "I'm a bit uncontrolled and easily distracted, but this allows my compositions to be guided by the circumstances of the moment."
Volume 1 features essays by Philip Sherburne [The Wire, XLR8R] and Susanna Bolle [XLR8R].
