General Public’s DISK Session #21 presents audio-visual performances by Frank Bretschneider and MimiCof (a.k.a. midori hirano) with Jeffers Egan.
[audio:Frank Bretschneider – barebone.mp3]Frank Bretschneider is a musician, composer and video artist from Berlin. His work is known for precise sound placement, complex, interwoven rhythm structures and its minimal, flowing approach.
Described as „abstract analogue pointilism“, „ambience for spaceports“ or „hypnotic echochamber pulsebeat“, Bretschneider‘s subtle and detailed music is echoed by his visuals: perfect translated realizations of the qualities found in music within visual phenomena.
He has been releasing his work through several record labels including 12k, Korm Plastics, Mille Plateaux, Quatermass, raster-noton, Staalplaat etc.
For this DISK SESSION show he is going to play his latest work, “EXP”.

Midori Hirano is a musician, composer, sound artist and producer, born in Kyoto and now based in Berlin. She has been playing music since the age of 5 when she used a piano to flesh out her earliest compositions. While this led her to major in classical piano at university, it was the less traditional aspects of electronica that would ultimately prove her major inspiration. Her productions are augmented with often subtle electronic processing and digital samples creating a rich, rolling sound that is at once warm and melodic while tracing unexpected musical trajectories.
She is going to play under the name of MimiCof which focuses more on electronic texture.
Jeffers Egan is an american visual artist, working with handcrafted, algorithmic processes. Jeffers Egan’s abstract animations explore the concepts of digital as organism, and software as ecosystem. His works have been showcased worldwide at festivals, galleries and museums including Netmage, Pacific Design Center, Sao Paulo Museum of Image and Sound, CTM festival and the Walker Art Museum.
