üNN _ Silence _ MKX13CD
Elektro has the
reputation of sometimes neglecting the emotional impact of music in
favour of emphasising mechanical sounds. This, however, is not true
for üNN, the main project of the Frankfurt multimedia artist Frank
Rückert. Working as VJ for Sven Väth, Pascal FEOS, DJ Hell
or Monika Kruse, the computer scientist is an integral part of the international
Techno Club scene. After his albums 'Delay' (Elektrolux, 1999), 'Relief'
(Elektrolux, 2000), 'Electronic Music' (Mikrolux, 2002, also avaible
on DVD) as well as the DVD cooperation 'üNN + osa = strom' produced
with students of architecture at the Technical University of Darmstadt
(Elektrolux, 2004), he closes the gap between sensual ambient and motor-comprehensible
elektro of his previous releases by his new longplayer 'Silence'.
