Performed live at the Kaaitheaterstudio in Brussels on the summer of 2000 by Markus Popp and jan St. Werner, INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURE is without a shadow of a doubt a minimal experience. The tracks are based on a "structure with monochromes on reports of the golden number 1.618033989". Searching the web I've found that " The golden section is also called the golden ratio, the golden mean and the divine proportion. It is closely connected with the Fibonacci series and has a value of (5 - 1)/2 which is 0.61803... which we call phi. It has some interesting properties such as 1/phi is the same as 1+phi and we call this value Phi= (5 + 1)/2" (for more see http://www.mcs.surrey.ac.uk/Personal/R.Knott/Fibonacci/fib.html or http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt669/Student.Folders/Frietag.Mark/Homepage/Goldenratio/goldenratio.htmlif you want a mathematical explanation of it). It would be interesting to know if the duo followed some particular way correlated to the Phi to perform the seven tracks of this CD as it would add much more to the whole work. Instead we've got only seven titles that keep up the mistery about the creation of the tracks. "Performal", "Quit Not Save", "Glocky Bit", "Artik", "Flexen", "Soso Sound"and "Endless Summer NAMM" are eight deconstructed tracks based on sounds collage of crackles, synthetic sounds and treated samples. The result is a sort of static suite which moves slowly producing calm melodies. Check it if you want to find a intimate moment where you can float into the deepness of your inner self.
