Decoder tries quite successfully I must say to toy with the idea of how things can be altered by the fact of choosing the stance of location and the way of conducting or performing pre-composed, half-improvised movements.
I was a bit taken aback but quite positively I must say by the form of this material where I expected a sort of V.A. compilation but instead of that I got a combination/an amalgam of materials recorded by different artists.
Alexander Schubert with his hardcore/free jazz influences blends cameralistic approach with clubbing wizardry. Burkhard Friedrich explores the idea of jingle and muzak using live instruments. Jorge Sánchez-Chiong on the other hand helps himself out with a Maelstrom of sound massacre.
The idea of a band failed many times in terms of experimental music. Decoder reshapes it with new flavour... really worth listening!
