◊ Eric Frye – Jeff Witscher (aka Rene Hell)
◊ Double bill: Kraak’s Yung Sheiks series
◊ Abstract techno and postmillennial melancholia
KRAAK’s exploration in what’s happening currently in underground music — aka the concert series Yung Sheikhs — presents a deep listening night with two elektronica masters working on the fringe of abstract techno and post-millennial melancholia.
You might know Jeff Witscher by his moniker Rene Hell. 10 years ago he popped out of the famous LA-noise scene to update Kosmiese Musik, making it suited for the post-internet generation. He impressed with records on PAN records and Type.
You can call Witscher a genuine electronic music pioneer, transcending music to an exercise in futurism. Synth arpeggios, abstract noise and ambient are forged into a beautiful, sonic abstraction that gives the ‘new wave of digital music’ a hint how it should be done. Music for people who like Object, Oneohtrix Point Never, M.E.S.H. or James Hoff.
Jeff Witscher runs also his own label Salon Records, on which Eric Frye released the sparkling Some Consequences of Four Incapacities. The liner notes are saying that the record investigates new modes of perception and spatial cognition. Interesting words for mathematical beauty a.k.a. far out abstract techno, or the best post-millennial melancholia is currently offering.
