KRACH DER Roboter
DJ ALEX BECHBERGER
1994 marks the beginning of the whole story: Berlin painter and „pop-art“ activist Jim Avignon spots a one-man-entertainer-keyboard in the sales bin at the hardware store, right next to the cash register.
He wastes no time and purchases the instrument. In the ensuing months he will dedicate quite some time to his new keyboard. The instrument has funky accompanying rhythms and a snazzy sound but unfortunately there is no feature to save the songs. Not knowing how to read music Mr. Avignon develops his very own method to memorize the numerous melodies and chordal sketches which he had composed in no time.
Günter Reznicek is Nova Huta. A unique character: he, his Casio keyboard and what he defines as "datschadelic music". All in one. A showman and at the same time a sonorous investigator. Creator of unstoppable, magnificent and subversive songs that could be defined as gum-robot-pop-disco-electro-dada and at the same time a musician with a long history in noisy experimentation and in the most radical electroacoustic. In order to understand this properly Hamburg's influences in Reznicek must be emphasised.
KRACH DER ROBOTER:
Deriving from a secret government project 'Krach der Roboter' was develloped in the early years of the third millennium. After experiments with self-similarity based code structures, Krach refused to provide it's artificial intelligence to maintain authoritarian society structures and devoted himself relentlessly to music, cooking and feeding ducks.
