Innode is a new project by Stefan Németh in close collaboration with Steven Hess (Locrian, Pan.American, Cleared) and Bernhard Breuer (Elektro Guzzi, Tumido). Central aspects of Innode´s music are rhythm, reduction and precise forms. Based on this navigation system, pieces display a technical approach contrasted by human intuition and unpredictability. So are drum machines interlinked with acoustic drums, one being shaped, extended and complemented by the other. At the same time these percussive patterns are substrate for electronic textures, made up of raw and unprocessed waveforms, which are generated by analog synthesizers. It is the function defining the choice of sounds, hence resulting elements can be as simple as white noise or a pulsewave. “Proto-sonic” could be a suitable term, a position in this context.
Comparable to this process, it is the focus on essentials regarding the form. The organization of chunks of sounds, as well as structuring microscopic details emerge from the same idea of using just as much as needed: the minimum simply fits best. The debut album “Gridshifter” is out now on Editions Mego.
