Schneider Kacirek – Shadows Documents [Bureau B] (2015)


Kenya meets Krautronics! Under the auspices of the Goethe Institute and Unesco, Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot, ex-Kreidler) and Sven Kacirek (“The Kenya Sessions”) have spent a fair amount of time in Kenya in recent years. As they travelled the country, they recorded rare, traditional music in different locations. On “Shadows Documents” they graft their acoustically gleaned impressions of Kenya onto pure electronic templates (with analogue accents). A central role is played by the repetitive, hypnotic element which is so integral to tribal music with its complex rhythms. On “Shadows Documents” the drums mutate into a sort of synthesizer instrument, almost subliminally melting into the sound of other instruments as a virtual observer, adding a certain nuance here and there, rather than performing a more catalytic function.
