FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER is definitely one of the vital producers in the global electronic network. A key member of the prestigious RASTER-NOTON collective (that includes the talented CARSTEN NICOLAI), he has critically acclaimed releases under the names KOMET and PRODUKT. BRETSCHNEIDER has created some of the most influencial spacial electronics of the late 90’s, unlike so much output in the microscopic music scene, his music has always flourished with activity. Precise sound placement, volume levels and the contrast of tones in BRETSCHNEIDER's production makes his compositions uniquely captivating. BRETSCHNEIDER returns for his second full length release on Mille Plateaux. CURVE takes a different approach that accomplishes the sensibilities of minimalist pop music. The unessentialist sounds of CLICKS & CUTS that have dominated Mille Plateaux are an intergral part of CURVE, however the evolution of this new genre continiues with the eloquent construction of majestic complexities. BRETSCHNEIDER goes beyond the plug-in or plug research electronics. He redefins the CLICKS & CUTS genre by rendering the parameters playable, reentering the musical domain with unprecedented ease. BRETSCHNEIDER discovers the complexity of the virtual: microtonality, clicks, complex rhythm textures, melodic fragments. A perfect musical body. BRETSCHNEIDER succeeds again in progressing the new age of laptop production and delivers a stunning exhibition of sound.
