eRikm / Martin Brandlmayr: Ecotone (Mikroton Recordings)


An active set of recordings from eRikm in duo with drummer Martin Brandlmayr, the latter keeping both players' feet on the ground while the former introduces and intervenes with unusual sonic elements, disruptive and lyrical, an enjoyably complex and unpredictable set.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Both musicians have been active in the scene of improvised and experimental music for twenty years, both have been astounding their audiences with their intricately developed playing manners. Now they joined their forces on this album.

eRikm, based in Marseille, started his musicial activities as a virtuoso turntablist in early 90s, gradually shifting his focus to more abstract music, sometimes abandoning turntables or substituting them with minidiscs or CD-turntables. His recent record output includes collaborations with Catherine Jauniaux, Norbert Möslang, Michel Doneda, Jerome Noetinger, dieb13, as well as solo albums Variations Opportunistes, Sixpériodes, Stème, Lux Paylettes, Transfall and the most recent Select Archive. Ecotone is his third project for Mikroton, following Stodgy and Mal Des Ardents / Pantoneon.

Martin Brandlmayr, from Vienna, is known for his inhuman capability of overprecise percussion playing which at the same time retain a deep humanity and produce a beautiful sound. He's the driving force behind the superb trio Radian, who have released records on Mego and Thrill Jockey, the improvising trio Trapist with bassist Joe Williamson and Martin Siewert, the longrunning legendary quartet Polwechsel (along with Werner Dafeldecker, Michael Moser and Burkhard Beins), and other projects like Autistic Daughters (with Dean Roberts and Werner Dafeldecker) and Kapital Band 1 (with Nicholas Bussmann). Ecotone is his second project for Mikroton, following El Infierno Musical quintet's album with Christof Kurzmann, Ken Vandermark, Eva Reiter and Clayton Thomas.

Opening with an Apocalypse - a dis-covering where everything is assembled anew, where a snare drum gets dismembered. The drums instantly reanimate into a new body without organs, opening a breach, opening a space. The drummer lifts his sticks and hits; a vertical landscape emerges inbetween, unidentified as it first breaks into the ears, as some atmospheric depression: variations in grain, tracing, electronic mass - disparate energy where some new chemistry arises, all between skin and memory. Each impact, each collapsing, each crumbling of the surface sets anew the fiction of the encounter, of the game; devoid of catharsis, but definitely vital."-Mikroton



"More traditional, it seems, in terms of improvisation is the release 'Ecotone' by erikM (cdj & electronics) and Martin Brandlmayr (drums). It's especially the latter that brings this into the realm of jazz, free jazz and regular improvisation. His playing is hectic, nervous and all the usual banging that comes in this world, but always recognizable as playing a drum kit. Nothing wrong with that of course, but for me, a lover of more weirder and irregular improvisation, the spicing comes from erikM, who delivers a very vivid set of electronics. Drone like, noise based, ambient, clicks, cuts, crackles, erikM uses the entire spectrum of possibilities to effectively change moods and textures played by Brandlmayr into some even more abstracter and wilder. Don't get me wrong: this is a great release too - not as great the other one I just heard from the same label, I must admit - but this too is a fine addition to the world of improvisation and an excellent release on Mikroton."-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly
