After starting the Raster label with Olaf Bender in 1996, prolific German artist Frank Bretschneider went on to release various strains of experimental music under a number of monikers, including Komet and Produkt. In 1999 he joined forces with fellow experimental German producer Carsten Nicolai, who ran the Noton label, to form the Raster-Noton collective. Later that same year, he released his debut full-length, Rand, under his own name on renowned German label Mille Plateaux. Similar to his Raster label, this album found Bretschneider embarking on a highbrow, almost academic affair, where he applied a philosophic backdrop to the music. A year later he returned with a second album, Curve, under his real name on Mille Plateaux. ~ Jason Birchmeier
