This is a record released by Austrian experimental electronic trio Innode on the country's long-established label Editions Mego in April 2024.

Contains 7 songs from free jazz, glitch techno to post-industrial strange beats.

"The trio of Bernhard Breuer, Stephen Hess and Stefan Nemeth once again applied a new methodology to the production of the album. The trio's approach was to create a new album without any pre-conceptual intentions, but rather to focus on the creative process itself. This is an anti-approach that leaves the development of the recording to the individual.

Irregular rhythmic patterns are often the initial foundation for each piece, and Brewer creates loops by hitting drums or using a modeling percussion synthesizer. As a result, existing stylized grids are often avoided. This costume embraced such anti-precision steps and built its form around a grungy template.

The processes that build upon the core structure vary throughout. In the case of Splitter, you can hear an example of Bernhard's core loop dominating the skeletal audio sphere. The track title Impactopium reflects the process of building the individual titles into a whole. Audio is a non-linear compendium of several fragments of individual elements. Three disparate elements were layered randomly in a conscious effort to explore a more decentralized architecture, with synths added in later stages for sonic seasoning.

Sound elements may also be restructured in unusual ways. The quiet sounds captured by the contact microphone are greatly amplified, and the last track introduces the twisted theme of the first song.

The title, Grain, refers to the roughness that results from such exploration. He also looks at the grain used in analog photography, and in the case of audio, the distorted signal, or the word "noise." All of these elements, which are usually shunned, are embraced here as thematic threads that encourage exploratory progression.

This is a playbox of ingenuity, a hall of mirrors, a never-ending quest for unusual tactics and fresh results.

Innode approached his first loop track with a variety of strategic approaches, creating an uncannily cohesive piece. From sparse source material to heavy overdubs, this is an uplifting collection of work from this insatiably curious and inquisitive Austrian collective. Humans create works, but the random acceptance of unexpected processes means that this group does not have complete control over the course of these works. "

Text excerpt by Editions Mego:

"Grain is the third Innode release following on from Gridshifter in 2013 and syn in 2021.

A new methodology to make the album is applied yet again from the trio of Bernhard Breuer, Steven Hess and Stefan Németh. The approach is more an anti approach where the trio let the process of creation itself steer the development of the recording, without any prior conceptual agenda.

Irregular rhythmic patterns often served as the initial springboard for each piece with Breuer creating a loop either by playing drums or with the aid of a modeling percussion synthesizer. The results often bypass existing formulaic grids. The outfit embraced these anti-precision steps building shapes around the tarnished templates.

The process of building upon the core structures laid forth alters throughout. In the case of ``Splitter“ you can hear an example of Bernhard´s core loops dominating a skeletal audio sphere. The title of the track ``Impactopium“ reflects the process of its construction being a conglomeration of individual titles meshed into a whole. The audio is a non-linear compendium of several fragments of individual elements. A conscious method of exploring a more decentralized architecture saw three disparate elements layered randomly on top of each other with some synths added as a sonic seasoning at the later stages.

[...]

Tackling the initial loop tracks from a wide variety of strategic approaches Innode has concocted a strangely cohesive work. From sparse source material to heavy overdubs of overdubs grain is a uplifting collection of works from this relentlessly curious and exploratory Austrian outfit. Humans make the work but the random embracing of unexpected processes means the gentleman of the outfit is not fully ruling what becomes of these works.
