sample the album:
"The experience of following «No Furniture»'s vertiginous exploration of a multitude of different dynamics, sounds and moods is an exhilarating one. In principle, electronics open up the possibility of stepping far beyond the limitations of conventional musical instruments and scales. «No Furniture» make effective use of this potential, harnessing it not to a spirit of arid experimentalism but rather to an abundance of musical ideas and enthusiasm. In general, the group's fecundity of imagination offers a refreshing change from the paralysis and painfully extended monomaniac exploration of single, thin ideas and sounds too often committed to CD and mistaken for profundity. It illustrates what can ensue when the array of advanced ideas and techniques pursued in Berlin, Vienna, Tokyo and elsewhere are taken as elements of a widened musical palette rather than as prescriptions for a uniform, mandatory and quasi-sacred minimalism. In short, «No Furniture» is an excellent recording, perhaps the best example of electro-acoustic music yet to have emerged from the community of advanced musicians in Berlin. Considered along with «Cesura», it also testifies to the expanding range and burgeoning importance of the Lisbon-based Creative Sources label."-Wayne Spencer (Paris Transatlantic)

• Show Bio for Kai Fagaschinski
"The Berlin-based clarinetist and composer/performer focuses on a subtle musicality of sound and noise phenomena. As an autodidact he has developed dubious manners on his instrument. His music is rooted in abstractness, including increasingly an insidious expressivity and a pre-melodic quality. He works on the borderline of composition and improvisation, with a preference for long-term collaborations.
His projects are The International Nothing - clarinet duo with Michael Thieke (cd: Mainstream, ftarri 2006 / less action, less excitement, less everything, ftarri 2010 / the dark side of success, ftarri 2014), los glissandinos with klaus filip (cd: Stand clear, creative sources 2005), the magic i.D. - Song Project with margareth kammerer, christof kurzmann & michael thieke (cd/vinyl: Till my breath gives out, erstwhile 2008 / i'm so awake - sleepless i feel, staubgold 2011), duo with Burkhard Stangl (cd: Musik - ein portrait in sehnsucht, erstwhile 2009), the dogmatics with Chris Abrahams (lp: The sacrifice for the music became our lifestyle, monotype 2012), here comes the sun with gunter schneider & barbara romen (cd: Here comes the sun, mikroton 2012), Kommando Raumschiff Zitrone with Christof kurzmann (cd: First time ever i saw your face, quincunx 2006), duo with Bernhard Gal (cd: Going round in serpentines, charhizma 2005), rebecca with michael renkel (cd: Rebecca [two variations], charhizma 2003), No Furniture with Boris Baltschun and Axel Dörner (cd: No furniture, creative sources 2003), and (exceptionally) solo.
Kai has been the commander of Raumschiff Zitrone from 2000 to 2006, joined by christof kurzmann in 2002. Recently both commanders have been retired and closed the legendary raumschiff zitrone which has presented concerts of countless international artists. In 2001 he co-initiated together with gregor hotz and conrad noack berlin's experimental music platform www.Echtzeitmusik.De.
Kai was artist-in-residense at quartier21 (part of museumsquartierwien, vienna) in 2004. As a result of fruitful collaborations and good friendships vienna feels like a second home for him."-Kai Fagaschinski Website (http://kylie.klingt.org/bio.html)
