"Maurizio Bianchi's unreleased 2-track album entitled, 'Teknoise'. Originally recorded in August 1980 this album has never been released in any format and is an extremely rare artifact from Maurizio's collection. Two long tracks, 'Tek' and 'Noise', deliver that unique sound that M.B. has made his own. Primitive drum machines pulse over sinister analogue synths, that create an unsettling atmosphere, perhaps only the true Italian master of Industrial and Musique Concrete could ever create."

Now this is interesting - one of the most unusual projects to have emerged on Editions Mego for a while. Markus Schmickler is better known for his electronic output as Pluramon, while Julian Rohrhuber is a Professor of Music Informatics and Media Theory at the Robert-Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf. Politken der Frequenz ('Politics of Frequency') draws on concepts from economics and advanced mathematics, including the work of contemporary philosopher Alain Badiou, for a literal sonification of cutting-edge theory and the abstractions of the modern world… Read more
