Label: Mikroton Recordings
Jason Kahn, Günter Müller and Norbert Möslang, all from Switzerland, comprise MKM trio, spontaneously founded in 2006 in Tokyo during their Japanese tour. They immediately achieved very fine results and collaborate since then. Their sound hovers between the at times harsh rhythmic noise of Norbert Möslang’s cracked everyday electronics and the rich sonorities of Günter Müller’s percussion-based samples and electronics. Jason Kahn’s work on analog synthesizer bridges these two worlds, adding high frequency interference and processed short wave radio input. Günter Müller launched Mikroton with his beautiful and rich Cym_Bowl and featured later on Limmat along with Jason Kahn and Christian Wolfarth, which was also Kahn’s second project following Planes with Asher, and later on Five Lines which was Möslang’s second project after Stodgy, a duo with eRikm.
Instants // Paris, their second release after msa in 2008 on For 4 Ears, takes you into the world of thudding pulse, noisy intermissions, tonal atmospheric drones and changing layers of sounds slipping in and out of consciousness.
