Price : 13.50 € - BUY
Description :Freiband is one of the long lasting projects of Frans de Waard, who is making music since more than 25 years under many aliases and in different line-ups, the most we ll-known being Kapotte Muziek, Goem, THU20, Beequeen and more recently Wieman, Ezdanitoff and Tobacconists. Solo he has been active under his own name, Shifts and of course Freiband. The name Freiband itself is picked from Asmus Tietchens' album Daseinsverfehlung, on which he explored sounds created by rubbing tape freely on magnetic heads. Frans de Waard transferred the concept to the digital field and now mostly uses that name for his computer-based pi eces.

Side A of the album seems to progress through an acid bath and take the magnifying glass to enhance the digital decays, evoking various stages of textural corrosions.

On side B, through some arcane wirings, some machines end up spitting out shifting binary patterns with a somewhat alienating feeling. Proof that electronic music can be minimal and eschew the 4/4 dance floor pattern, in favour of some dry and uncompromising 'Unerforschtes Gebiet' between minimal beats and Steve Reich' early tape compositions.
