NN

Activity of our project is focused around minimal and ambient abstractions. Inspired by work of chain reaction and mille plateaux we decided to merge dub climate with ambient space our way, limiting to minimum amount of ornaments of composition to deeper and more abstractive content. 
Experimental, funny, random and unpredicted by programmers use of software can be heard in character and structure of our compositions. They are dominated by improvisation and ad hoc solutions instead of planned activities or realization of particular tasks.

A crucial experience concerning downbeat music was the purchase of Norman Feller’s Album „Frameless Structure “. Music like that had never been heard before including House and Broken Beatz. Discovering netlabel Thinner they noticed that this very special sound was very much alike the sound they had acquired in the nineties. A lot of Basic Channel records had gained access onto their shelves. Wandering about worlds it occurs that they appear at psy-trance festivals as well as Chaos Communication Congress.
