Frank Bretschneider (born 1956) is a German modern composer, sound designer and musician, also known as Komet, based in Berlin. In 1986 Frank started to experiment with tape machines, synthesizers, modified guitars and promptly acquired the knowledge how to create music. Frank works primary were focused on the sine waves and white noise in the academic perspective. He formed a band called AG in the 1986 and started his long lasting career. More meaningful works started when Frank and his colleague Olaf Bender (Byetone) co-founded the influential Raster-Noton label in 1996. Over a few decades Frank has released numerous records on labels such as 12k, Raster-Noton, Mille Plateaux, Fällt and Bip Hop. He also participates in a group called Signal where he shares his mastery with other skillful musicians Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) and Olaf Bender (Byetone).

“Kippschwingungen” is a penetrating album which will be released on LINE records. Formed of eight shimmering compositions which were recorded by using a subharmonic sound generators Subharchord and Clavia Micro Modular. They generate alternating sine waves on the ring modulator input of the instrument and computer processing. The basis of this album stands on the sequential developing of precisely modified instrument sound that frequently transforms its oscillation. Impressive variety of generated glitches and cinematic textures strengthens the whole atmosphere. It sounds like malfunction scene from Stanley Kubric’s timeless film “2001: A Space Odyssey” – mathematical and dimensional sound. It’s a very exquisite and extraordinary record that any text loses its meaning. Secret Thirteen Journal strongly recommends to experience it personally.

“Kippschwingungen” is like a speedy diving through the scenic cosmos wormholes and leaving chaotic turbulence that creates impossible bizarre Doppler effect.
