interview on Tanzgemeinschaft
review on Drifting, Almost Falling
When classical pianist Jan Gerdes and electronic musician Frank Bogdanowitz aka Dr.Nojoke met on a rooftop party in Berlin they immediately hooked up. First musical improvisations led to serious examinations in sound, melody and rhythm with references to contemporary, minimal, romantic music, jazz, ambient, drone, clicks, glitch and club-music.
rand’s first EP now presents three early pieces, that explore synaptic potentials, a time-space texture full of suggestions – mysterious and slowly winding like in Voodoo River, scanning frozen moments like in Disabled Seconds or feeling days with no goal like in Tragically Hip.
It may be sung in the post-cerebral continuum.
