Andrew Pekler & Jan Jelinek play Ursula BognerDE
German producer Jan Jelinek discovered the work of Cologne electronic pioneer Ursula Bogner under strange circumstances. Flying back from Vilnius after a Northern European tour, he happened to sit next to Bogner’s son, Sébastien, and it was not long after the pair began conversing that the story of Ursula Bogner’s homebound hobby was revealed. Some time after the fateful flight, Jelinek received a box of Ursula Bogner’s works recorded between 1969 and 1988. They served as some of the earliest pure-electronics compositions recorded in Germany at that time. As a result, Jan Jelinek launched the Faitiche label to release her output. For the past 3 years, Jan Jelinek, Mo Loschelder, Andrew Pekler and Kassian Troyer have been sharing Ursula Bogner’s extensive body of work with the world at large. For MUTEK, Jan Jelinek and Andrew Pekler will serve as her musical interpreters.
