Rashim | Mosz

Founded 2003 by Stefan Nemeth, member of Radian, and Michaela Schwentner aka Jade, Mosz – Vienna-Berilin "non-conform musical strategies supporting" label, took off as formaly non-comformistic with Kapital Band 1 first release including a blank CD-R beside the one their album was burnt on. Further volumes by Martin Siewert, Lokai, Metalycée, Boris Hauf etc. were exploring rather inner "unconventionalism" then coresponding to the basic statement precisely.
11th release, November 2006. Rashim "suns.shadows" on Mosz. Gina Hell and Yasmina Haddad – a female duo. "Intitially we wanted to bring Xenakis and Techno together... well, in the end it sounded really different....", Gina says.
Well, in my humble opinion, the interbreeding experiment was a success... simply some part of the final material mutated as a result of the operation or just wasn't involved in. The symbiosis of Iannis Xenakis and Techno is an exact definition for this full-lenght montage scheme. Xenakis' stochastic mathematical techniques in compositions (Maxwell-Boltzmann kinetic theory of gases, aleatory distribution of points on a plane, Gaussian distribution, Boolean algebra, Brownian motion) and techno' square patterns. Sharply mapped piece. Medley of sampled acoustic guitar snippets, jazz drum kit unsophisticated passages intersecting the sharp drum-synth lines. "Our work process-really simple: Reason and Logic, but the sounds are produced by us, which might be the reason why it sounds so analogue - guitars and some instruments (kalimba, tambourin, keyboard, voices, bags, chairs..) and a minimalistic approach cause we're both in permanent war with technique and virtuosity", - Gina and Yasmina say.
More info: Florian Horwath (guitar), Martin Brandlmayr (drums, percussion, bass?) – member of Radian, Kapital Band 1, Trapist, Autistic Daughters and Howe Gelb (piano) collaborated Gina and Yasmina to fill this album with analogue warmth of the acoustic instruments.
