mr 001 - 2000
Radian operate in the space between music and noise, between live and sampled sounds, between driving me up the wall and being intriguing beyond words. Drummer Martin Brandlmayr produces rolling, stop-start meters both funky and freestyle while bassist John Norman occasionally adds muted sonic waves. The essence of Radian is dependent on Stefan Nemeth\'s Korg MS 10 playing and the group\'s overall integration of noise shrapnel, piercing tones and electronic feedback. These sounds are both microscopic and minimal, cold and bitter but acceptable, like a hungover Sunday morning where the night\'s revelry still echoes through your ringing ears. Fascinating.
This release is a co-production of the Mego and Rhiz labels.
