Frank Metzger, one of the Oval founding members, on the project's split in 95:
"Strictly speaking, neither Sebastian nor I actually 'left' oval. In the summer of 95, it became clear that Markus had very different goals for oval than I did. Increasingly, he wanted to professionalize oval.
For him, it was no longer so much about the music and the fun that went along with it, than it was about strategical considerations and marketing. I wrote a letter to Markus regarding this, which he has not answered to this day.
With Sebastian, the situation was similar. He saw on television that he was no longer an oval member. In a piece on the Japanese tour of mouse on mars/microstoria/oval that was broadcasted by the German music television station VIVA, there was a subtitle in a video clip of one of the oval pieces, which read: "This video was generated on the computer by Markus Popp and ex-oval member Sebastian Oschatz." It’s pretty likely that Markus was responsible for this subtitle. And Sebastian also no longer has any kind of contact with Markus."
