Touching Extremes (IT)

In wrong hands, sequential electronics sound boring and sterile, but with two masters of the game like Frank Bretschneider and Ralph Steinbr├╝chel such a possibility is out of the question. The basic materials were exchanged between 2003 and 2005, evolving into a definitive form which works perfectly in the most diverse contexts; listened by headphones, the music reveals subterranean intersections under a bright linearity, while from the speakers it becomes an insinuating ambience where patterns, rhythms and ethereal configurations create a delicate balance that a knowledgeable ear cannot define differently from “pleasing”. Such a thorough control over every single nuance of this apparently perfect organism yields an overall feeling of beneficial pulsing radiation which delivers muscles and brain from the residual rust of confusion and displacement.
