Frank Bretschneider + Steve Roden :: Suite Nuit (Line)

This space is the place for parallel trajectories of time and shape, inciding on perception of space and space for perception. Frank Bretschneider and Steve Roden strike as unlikely bedfellows. Despite both seeming to sit neatly under ‘post-digital avant-electronica’ or some such sub-genre, cursory comparison of two decades of separate endeavours reveals significantly differing aesthetics—lowercase Steve’s scuttling sitting-in-a-room stasis vs. minimal Frank’s LFOs […]

Steve Roden :: Flower & Water (Dragon’s Eye)

‘My hope was that the messiness of my process might offer some sound pieces that might relate to how a kitchen might look when I might have finished baking bread… with hands covered in flour, with dough stuck to the counter, etc.’ (Steve Roden) Steve Roden is credited with coining the term ‘lowercase’ to describe ‘a […]

Steve Roden & Machinefabriek :: Lichtung (Eat, Sleep, Repeat)

Ultimately, Lichtung‘s places remain elusive fragments, memory residue, illusory referents of the intangible drift of the music and its field infusions. [Release page] On returning from a spell spent somewhere, recall is far from total, more partial. Slippery, errant, an essence of place is what remains, fading over time.
