Boomkat Product Review:
Freiband is the latest moniker of Frand De Waard, who has been actively involved in producing music since 1984 as Goem, Beequeen, Quest, Shifts and others. For his new project the concept was borrowed from sonic pioneer Asmus Tietchens who developed the technique of producing new music by scratching analogue tape against the heads of a reel-to-reel machine. 'Microbes' is full of warm digital music made out of clicks, pops, scracthes....creating a post-modern take on the ambient scene. Recommended.
