Frank Bretschneider - Elektra 12 - 7.05.11


Co-founder, along with Olaf Bender (byetone) and Carsten Nicolai (alva noto), of the highly respected label raster-noton, Frank Bretschneider presents the audiovisual version of EXP, his most recent album. Based on the idea that the image must achieve the same abstract purity as the sound, EXP attempts to interweave the music’s qualities (rhythm, tempo, mood, intensity and structure of the composition) with visual phenomena. Gracefully exploring the notion of synesthesia, Frank Bretschneider stages sound in all its beauty, whether simple geometric abstractions or extraordinarily complex shapes.
