International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Frank Bretschneider is a musician, composer and video artist in Berlin. He is also one of
the co-founders of the prestigious label Raster-Noton. His work is known for precise
sound placement, complex, interwoven rhythm structures and its minimal, flowing
approach. Bretschneider's subtle and detailed music is echoed by his visuals: perfect
translated realizations of the qualities found in music within visual phenomena.

SUPER.TRIGGER comes again in Bretschneider’s signature style of ultra-clean bleeps
and bouncing machine beats with terseness and precision, and a preference for
high-voltage sounds halfway between noise and tone. The combination of programming,
composition and construction is connected with his very idiosyncratic aesthetic of digital
sound: controlled and objective. The whole follows simple mechanical states – on/off,
up/down, soft/hard, slow/fast, loud/quiet – and is characterized by the absence of any
romanticism. Still this return to the elementary, the fundamental, does not diminish the
music to dance-floor functionality. Instead Bretschneider always stays emphatically
musical and manages to generate sophisticated and complex rhythm-structures, which
respectively induce minimal deviations in frequency and timing relationships to
generate a surplus of funk.
