raster-noton is one of the premier imprints fusing minimal electronic music / installation art / visual presentation and graphic design. "raster-noton . archiv für ton und nichtton" is meant to be a platform - a network covering the overlapping border areas of pop, art and science. emerged from the fusion of the two labels rastermusic and noton (in 1999), they realize music projects, publications and installation works. The common idea behind all releases is an experimental approach - an amalgamation of sound, art and design. So far the catalogue of the label consists of about 74 releases. Most of the projects follow the concept of a series with contributions by very different artists such as: Frank Bretschneider, William Basinski, alva noto, Ivan Pavlov aka COH, Ryoji Ikeda, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Senking, Richard Chartier, Pixel, Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic), Robert Lippok etc. Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai run raster-noton and the label is based in Chemnitz, Germany.
*New promotions office now based in the GTA and managed by Praveer Baijal / sales office & curatorial projects based in Montreal managed by Eric Mattson.
FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER is a founding member of Raster-Noton and one of the pioneering figures in ultra minimal post techno. Using the most basic sound sources--sine waves and white noise--Bretschneider creates minimal, flowing pieces with delicate textures and complex rhythmic patterns. Frank's new album "Rhythmic" will be released this week in Barcelona at the Sonar Festival. TORONTO DEBUT
SENKING is Cologne's Jens Massel, who also records as Fumble and as part of Poto & Cabengo. As Senking, Massell makes darkly atmospheric music that is deep, dubby, and intensely cinematic. His most recent CD, List, is out now on Raster-Noton. TORONTO DEBUT
SANS SOLEIL aka Michael Trommer is a Toronto based producer and visual artist who has recorded for such electronic music labels as Transmat, Wave, Truffle, Interchill, Nice'N'Smooth, Dragonfly, Ultra-Vista, Instinct, Impact, Liquid Sound Design and Dakini. He records under his own name, as well as aliases such as 'Sans Soleil" Broad-minded in his approach to electronic music, Michael also creates gallery-based audio installation work. 2005 saw him creating a site-specific sound installation for Australia's 'Liquid Architecture' exhibition. Another of his recent works was a net-based audio-manipulation project which was part of the 'from 0 to 1 and back again' exhibition at Kunsthalle Schirn in Frankfurt; this became the subject of many radio specials on both Deutsche Welle and Hessischer Rundfunk. In 2000, his work was nominated for the Prix Italia for experimental music. His field-recording based material has been featured on London's Resonance FM, www.vagueterrain.net, www.insine.net, and www.stasisfield.com." Special live set for June 26 with visuals by Additv.
