Raster-Noton meets Time To Express: where the one label reinterprets the club as a bunker, the other operates an already legendary sound microscopy. The two meet where cognitive interest ducks searchlights in a haze of candle smoke, where the resilience of elementary particles defies thundering machines, and allows a sparse silicon music, virtually bereft of human traces, to emerge. Thus in the DJ set of the Raster-Noton co-founder Olaf Bender aka Byetone, Kyoka’s shattered rhythms, or in the unpredictable patterns of Mark Fell’s erratic process music, and likewise when Kangding Ray, another artist released on Raster-Noton, juxtaposes analog and digital processes, introspective melancholy and sharp industrial precision. This tension is finally processed by Time To Express figureheads Peter Van Hoesen and Yves De Mey, with bass-weighted consistency. The live incarnation of their AV project Sendai celebrates its world premiere this evening.
