ASUNA & Jan Jelinek

The Japanese sound artist's meandering organ drones merge with Jelinek's pulsating synthesizer and field recording loops to create dense superclusters that span broad harmonic arcs.


Beispiel (German for "example", also suggests "playing together") is a joint project by Frank Bretschneider and Jan Jelinek. They perform free electronic music, the result of spontaneous improvisations.


Ursula Bogner

It is only due to a fortunate coincidence that we know anything of Ursula Bogner, the musician. Born in 1946, she spent her professional life as a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry, simultaneously pursuing a hobby of experimenting with electronic music in seclusion over a span of nearly 30 years.

Frank Bretschneider

Frank Bretschneider works as a musician, composer and video artist in Berlin, making mainly electronic work based on complex rhythmic structures and interlocking textures. In 1986, he founded AG Geige, one of the most influential underground bands in East Germany. In 1996, he co-founded the label raster-noton.

Computer Soup & Jan Jelinek

Formed in Tokyo in 1996 as a quintet (including Shusaku Hariya and Daisuke Oishi), Computer Soup began by performing with acoustic instruments on the streets of Shibuya. Ikeda und Okubo soon switched instruments, and from then on the group's sound was defined by electronic toys, oscillators and Satoru Horia's trumpet.


From 1998 to 2004 Farben produced techno and house abstractions which were characterized by their simple, geometric rhythms and detailed sound aesthetics. Journalist Philip Sherburne subsequently named this music Microhouse.


Farben & James DIN A4

In the summer of 2013 Farben remixed his way through the extensive oeuvre of the sample and collage artist James DIN A4 (Dennis Busch) and gathered ten of his favorite titles.


Masayoshi Fujita & Jan Jelinek

Japanese vibraphonist Masayoshi Fujita prepares his instrument with various percussion elements as well as metal objects and toys, while Jan Jelinek layers loops made using small-scale electronic devices.

GES - Gesellschaft zur Emanzipation des Samples

GES is no official entity, but rather a rough idea, an association without membership or manifestation committed to one primary and pragmatic notion: financial backing and legal support in case of active breaches of copyright – the process of sampling.


Twenty years ago, Jan Jelinek’s debut album Personal Rock was released by Source Records. Under the pseudonym Gramm, it brings together eight tracks that have not been available on vinyl since their original release.

Muellie Messiah & Punk Not Punk

Berlin underground techno legends Muellie Messiah & Punk Not Punk, mainly known under their 100Records moniker.


Born in Ukraine and now based in Estonia, Nikolaienko has chosen a historical medium to record historical-sounding sequences. He also runs the two wonderful labels Muscut and Shukai, the latter being an archival project releasing electroacoustic obscurities from the Soviet past.

Andrew Pekler

Andrew Pekler was the musical director of the 2011 album Ursula Bogner – Sonne=Blackbox. Known for his albums on Senufo Editions, Entr’acte, Dekorder, Kranky and other labels, Andrew Pekler’s Tristes Tropiques is an album of synthetic exotica, pseudo-ethnographic music and unreal field recordings.

Roméo Poirier

Poirier takes music seriously as a time-based art – not just in the sense of duration, but also in the way time is refracted into autobiographical experience, historical dimensions and stages of evolution. He creates a succession of new balances between various tempos, iterations and developments. 

Jonathan Scherk

Jonathan Scherk is a master of his craft: He immerses us in a highly distinctive world of plunderphonics-sampledelica-variations acousmatiques that’s impossible to classify while feeling familiar nonetheless.

Jonathan Scherk & Daniel Majer

Jonathan Scherk and Daniel Majer hail from the post-rock and experimental scene in Vancouver, where they shared a studio for several years. They produce contemporary sound collages on samplers, laptops etc. using raw material drawn from YouTube videos, field recordings, cassettes, and LPs from the dollar bin.

Triosk meets Jan Jelinek

Trip Shrubb

Known to many from bands like Tuesday Weld or The Schneider TM Experience, Michael Beckett aka Trip Shrubb remixed his way through Harry Smith’s famous Anthology of American Folk Music.
