cleymoore Absolutely stunning work, reminiscent of Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto. Bogdan & Gerdes found a common ground for sonic exploration that is as musically deep as it is exciting. Favorite track: Voodoo River (Through Plains).

david pulsford Great collaboration to make a seamless crossover EP. Slightly classical sounding and slightly jazz-like piano of Jan Gerdes, with the perfect, unobtrusive electronic manipulations of Dr Nojoke. Favorite track: Tragically Hip.

about

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

Drifting, Almost Falling:
"Utilising space, silence, electroacoustic frameworks and tones, rand take minimal piano notes and re-purpose them into a sound world that has a eerie and slightly ominous feel. You get the sense that this collaboration isn’t just about taking their respective musical experiences and joining them together. Instead you are catapulted into their own distinct world. "
