Atom Heart - Schnittstelle

Label: Rather Interesting
Year: 1998
Styles: Ambient Techno, Electro-Jazz

Review: (

Following a pair of inexplicably ho-hum recordings, Atom Heart's Schnittstelle is something of a return to form. Elements of improvisational electronics remain, but Schmidt is back at the concept block with much of this one, constructing tracks from cracks and creases in the digital recording process (the title is German, loosely, for "the point at which something is cut"). Hard disk crashes, data corruption, tracking error, and digital noise and distortion are just a few of the methods applied, making of Schnittstelle something akin to the output of experimental digital abusers such as Farmers Manual, Mika Vainio, and Christian Fennesz. The album is far more varied than those comparisons suggest, however, and is among the very finest of Atom Heart's lengthy discography.

Ambient Techno, Electro-Jazz are the best kind of music, so I always try to get some music in the internet and some videos also.

"schnittstelle" comes down to "interface" like your usb port! uwe schmidt was a genius at the time, but than he lost it. there must be around 30 rather interesting releases at least.
