Albums Review

Landschaft Nach Der Schlacht (2000) EP 12ʼʼ

The second work and first EP of the group.It is an abstract album, very calm and a bit slow. However it has lots of polyrhythms and complex textures that makes it really interesting. It is a great example of how minimalism can be more than just repetitions.
The Album Artwork is a gloomy black & white picture. It produces a melancholic and mysterious feeling. Not the best of their works.

The John Peel Session (2001) CD

It is the fifth album of the group and my favorite. It combines electroacoustic and computer music as well as sample techniques. It is primarily a minimalist album with great melod
ic passages, futuristic soundscapes, rich rhythms and abstract electronic exploration. The Album Artwork is a modern illustration
of a japanese character. Only uses two colours; very simple and fresh.

Directorʼs Cut (2003) DVD/CD

This album is one of their audiovisual works. It is widely considered the best album to date. The animation is an abstract moving painting that combines 2D y 3D techniques. In this album Rechenzentrum exposes brilliantly their talent to fuse sound and visuals in order to create a perfect symbiosis between them.
The Album Artwork is a stunning still image extracted from the animation.
