"Kapital Band 1 – Internationale Solidarität” is the third album of Martin Brandlmayr & Nicholas Bussmann. Since their first album “Kapital Band 1 – 2CD" in 2004 the duo explores the possibilities of improvising music with machines. Investigating parallel existences and mimetic affirmations of machine structures and human patterns. For their third album they revised their experimental settings once again. “Internationale Solidarität” is a search between impulse and logic, algorithms and attitudes, false random and real mistakes.
