m_nus / raster-noton

the collaboration of the labels m_nus and raster-noton dates back to the year 1999, when richie hawtin was invited by carsten nicolai to take part in the "new forms" cd/performance project that was staged at galerie für zeitgenössische kunst in leipzig, germany. since then both labels have shown their interest to finally launch a collaborative project.

in the last ten years both m_nus and raster-noton have set high standards of sound and visual presentation. their strong affinity to minimalist design and a compelling musical output of their catalogue has since been parallel in the labels' philosophy. especially the "concept" series of m_nus and the »20' to 2000« series of raster-noton have been landmarks of minimal electronic music and defined the start into the new century. a collaboration hence seems to be overdue and consistent.
