Innode is a new project by Stefan Németh (synthesizers) in close collaboration with Steven Hess (drums) and Bernhard Breuer (drums). Central aspects of Innode’s music are rhythm, reduction and precise forms. Based on this navigation system, pieces display a technical approach contrasted with human intuition and unpredictability. In this way drum machines are interlinked with acoustic drums, one being shaped, extended and complemented by the other. At the same time these percussive patterns are the substrate for electronic textures, made up of raw and unprocessed waveforms, which are generated by analog synthesizers. It is the function defining the choice of sounds, hence the resulting elements can be as simple as white noise or a pulsewave. “Proto-sonic” might be a suitable term or position in this context.
