FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER/PETER DUIMELINKS
Korm Plastics is proud to present the tenth release in the Brombron series. Originally a co-production between Staalplaat and Extrapool, it is now hosted by co-curator Frans de Waard. In the year 2000 Frans de Waard and Extrapool started the Brombron project. Two or more musicians become artists in residence in Extrapool, an arts initiative in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with a fully equipped sound recording studio. These artists can work in a certain amount of time on a collaborative project; a project they always wished to do, but didn't have the time or the equipment to realize.
Frank Bretschneider is one of the vital
producers in the global electronic network. A member of the raster-noton
collective, he also has releases under the names Komet and Produkt.
Bretschneider has created some spacial electronics of the late
90's and 00'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 captivating. Bretschneider goes
beyond the plug-in or plug research electronics. He redefins the
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,
In their playing together Bretschneider
and Duimelinks go back to the core of minimal, click related techno
music, to the early days of Komet and Goem. Minimal but engaging
music, always with the heartbeat pulse at the bottom.
