D/B Recommended: B. Fleischmann & Optiate @ Horst Krzberg Berlin | Wednesday, 14.11.2012

Morr Music presents another fantastic lineup at Horst Krzberg this month with Austrian B. Fleischmann playing in Berlin for the second time this year.

A live appearance from Raster Noton’s Opiate makes this an extra special double bill and a DJ set from Miles aka Demdike Stare rounds off what is undeniably an exceptionally solid programme.

Born in Austria’s capital Vienna in 1975, Bernhard Fleischmann got his musical start on the piano at age eight before turning to drums five years later as a student at the Hinterbrühl music school. He drummed in live bands for a seven year stretch, from 1988 to 1995, playing with Speed Is Essential and Sore!. In 1998, the electronic music of the Vienna scene started catching his ear, and he switched over to the digital realm and began creating music on his laptop.

Well-versed in the art of rhythm at this point, it seemed a natural process to make beats based on complex time signatures and wild syncopated fills. Sandwiched by singles and EPs, A Choir of Empty Beds and Welcome Tourist were among his most notable releases. And there is “The Humbucking Coil”, Bernhard Fleischmann’s third solo record released in February 2006 – euphoric pop in slow motion, rustling rhythm patterns, songs that linger and indulge.
