Notstandskomitee – Release Candidate (SERK7002)

Nous sommes particulièrement heureux de sortir une cassette Notstandskomitee, cousin germain caché d’Autechre issu de la scène indus. Il a débuté dans la musique électronique en 1983, premiers concerts en 1986, et a créé Notstandskomitee en 1991. Artiste multimédia, sound designer, programmeur, maître des synthétiseurs modulaires, cet adepte de la technologie autant que du DIY (de l’analogique au digital) développe dans ses performances audiovisuelles son style inimitable entre musique industrielle, ambiant, bruitisme, et IDM. Membre de plusieurs groupes (Elektronengehirn, Das Kombinat, Akustikkoppler, Restlichtverstaerker..), il sort sa musique régulièrement depuis 1991 en cassette, vinyle, CD ou en ligne, sur son label block 4 entre autres.

———————–ENGLISH—————————

Notstandskomitee is a an electro-industrial project by the German electronic musician Malte Steiner. It started in 1991 as a side-project to the industrial outfit Das Kombinat and has developed to one of Steiner’s more extensive musical projects.
For Notstandskomitee, Steiner has developed an unique style of IDM working with different kinds of electronics, used in a variety of combinations to create his own unique rhythmic sound, where the source-material goes from analog via digital to software-based systems. Notstandskomitee concerts are supported by synthetic visual computer animations, made by Steiner especially for his live concerts. In this way the sounds and the images become a close connected entity, which is an important part of the Notstandskomitee identity. Notstandskomitee has played concerts world wide and made releases on cassette, CD, vinyl as well as online.
