rasterfahndung from bern (.ch) is one of the rare projects that wonderfully melt acoustic instruments with electronic music. the guitar of niklaus erismann and the laptop of marcel kägi have equal parts in these very harmonic works influenced by studies at bern’s music conservatory. their release leads us from sunny-italian guitar chords over to ambient scapes with dadaistic-voices, and back to the classically-influenced maintheme “pizzicato suite”. besides being involved in the project nebelle.ch, the two are also known for their chilling sofa-live-acts.
in these days of foggy langscape-walks each track feels like eating a crispy pizza with various ingredients on a sunny terrace somewhere in the south. and the musical ingredients are so tasty, that bern’s own “troubadour” mani matter would have admired them.
