On this mini lp the group’s work is focused on the acoustic sphere beyond usual gain signals. Elements of noise containing no original sense emerge to significant structures. The setup consists of six to eight "empty" record players which means that no gain signals but the empty or manipulated lock grooves or the paper labels of the records are played.
Besides that Institut Für Feinmotorik have found some other ways to generate acoustic signals out of empty record players: house-rubberbands, adhesive tape and tooth brushes are just a few instruments used to produce different sounds. Not only for friends of minimal techno in Brinkmann and Studio 1 style.
Institut Fuer Feinmotorik
Institut Fuer Feinmotorik is an artist’s group working in different formats and media, founded for a club-event in Basel (Switzerland) in 1997, creating “rough minimal mechanical rhythmic soundscapes”.
The Institut Fuer Feinmotorik (= institute for precision motoricity) project is interested in the complex relationship between perception of micro-phenomena in acoustic and visual spheres and the precision stumbling through micro-social behaviour in daily situations.
Originating in the Black Forest, Germany, the main activity is acoustic-art / music, created with 8 turntables, 4 DJ mixers + end-mixer. The setup consists of six to eight “empty“ record players which means that there are no gain signals but the empty or manipulated lock grooves or the paper labels of the records are played. Besides that Institut Für Feinmotorik have found some other ways to generate acoustic signals out of empty record players: household rubber-bands, adhesive tape and tooth brushes are just a few instruments used to produce different sounds.
The music of Institut Fuer Feinmotorik mostly appears in the context of electronic music, but is deeply mechanical and, if any, imitates structures and aesthetic codes of digital-/electronic music by the use of an important instrument of the electronic (dance-) music, namely the DJ set-up minus the records, to create an aesthetic approach of a stumble-structured rhythm music, sounding not unlike some state-of-the-art power-book click-hop piece listened to through some closed doors.
Different from many other generating-procedures of contemporary electronic music, no single piece of I.F.F. music is able to be reproduced; so every I.F.F. show is a unique event, but with a typical aesthetic recognition-effect caused by their radical purist attitude.
