      On WICHMAN AND OTHER PIECES (68'34") Spielerei (Dennis
      Knoepper) & Mantacoup (Jeroen Vermeent) bring together
      divergent traditions. The duo views electronic music, from
      groundbreaking deep space works through to experimental
      computer built realizations, in the present tense. This strong
      release derives its potency from the unresolved tension between
      the old and the new. "Wichman" (39'24"), the piece for which this
      album is named, is a live recording, while the remaining four
      tracks are from the studio. This combination makes for an
      interesting mixture of perspectives, with one view heated and
      intuitive from the concert hall, the other cool and collected from
      the studio. The mood and tone of WICHMAN moves easily
      between edge-of-nowhere electronic wasteland and the
      vastness of the pulsing cosmos. Repetitive patterns of
      geometric rhythms and abstract forms rise out of the quiet
      complexity of drifting harmonies and spacey effects. This work is
      meant to be stimulating, its expansion and contraction
      correlating with the listener's engagement - which will be
      focused during the lilting ethereal melodies, less so when
      submerged within the stark sonic depths. WICHMAN, however
      open and infinite, possesses an impeccable sonic sense, one
      where every meticulous detail demonstrates that nothing was
      left to chance.
