spare parts

»spare parts« is the long awaited new album from the sonic laboratory of austria-based "psycho-physio" musican pomassl and the latest example of his interest in deconstructing musical structure and testing the limits of hearing.

still retaining his distinctive style, this record shows much more maturely arranged elements and carefully structured sections compared to his earlier output and features a dabbling and blurring experimental and advanced pop. it is pomassl’'s full-lenght debut for the german imprint raster-noton after several collaboration contributions for the label.

producing this album, pomassl has explored his arsenal of armaments with the initial use of original generators and synthesizers (polivoks, ritm-2) from soviet fabrics that were manufactured in the 80‘s. besides this, he uses a combination of prototypical self-customized electronic instruments versus state of the art technology. whilst taking the listener in the opposite direction via abstracted pieces like »atenna atoll« and »allied nippon« and furthermore experimental tunes like »l>-

the most anomalous track »qaraghandy storm« closes the album with a far off electrical desert storm.

pomassl is the executor of the seminal »trail error« (1996) album, one of the first records to really explore very low and very high tones as well as pioneering potentials of digital errors in terms of electronic music, a record which has inspired many fellow analog and digital artists, released on the laton label which he co-founded in the early 1990s. with the »skeleton« vinyl series, he released a number of cutting-edge minimal techno records, starting from 1997 on viennese sabotage/craft label.

»spare parts« was pre-presented successfully live throughout the raster-noton japan tour in october 2007.
