Microstoria

Oval and Mouse on Mars, both have become focal points in modern electronic music, while exploring an alternative vocabulary for today's digital media. Their micro-stories are about new languages, new ways of expressing music itself, guiding it to unknown territories. With their common project Microstoria they tend to combine Oval's fetish for CD scarification with the odd instrumentation and breezy, subtlely inchoate arrangements of Mouse on Mars. Freed from traditional concepts of time, verse, even structure, Microstoria explores sound and texture creating depth and form out of abstractions. Subtle tonal changes trigger major alterations when juxtaposed, the nature of improvisation is altered by clear and precise editing decisions, generating imperfection in an otherwise harmonic soundworld. It is this paradoxical arrangement that mirrors the paradox of the abstract organicity of the music and it's mechanical origins.

Microstoria are Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars, Lithops) & Markus Popp (Oval, So)
