Epic archival document from Raster Noton; the beginning of a comprehensive and authorized review of the past 20 years of the label. Comes with an exclusive CD featuring material from Kangding Ray, Emptyset, Alva Noto, Frank Bretschneider, Senking, Byetone, Atom Heart, Robert Lippok and more. A short introductory preface by Olaf Bender is followed by a keynote interview conducted by berlin publicist Max Dax that provides an insight into the identity and philosophy of the label heads. The main part of the book comprises the extensive catalog of all the releases published by the label between 1996 and 2016, while tabular listings of various formats and products that were distributed or curated by raster-noton complete the catalog.

A further exclusive part of the publication is the accompanying CD, which is only available when purchased with the book. Raster Noton‘s »archiv« series was first introduced in december 2003 as a supplement to »the wire« magazine and has since been continued in loose sequence with different artists related to the label. Following the idea of the label which defines itself as a platform for its artists, the releases in the catalog part are not presented according to their format, invested effort or meaning, but sorted according to their catalog number and presented on exactly one double page, whereas some series were summarized.

As a continuation of this archival revision, further books are planned that will document artist profiles, installations, composition techniques and sources of inspiration."
