"Oskar Aichinger (piano + synthesizer), Stefan Nemeth (synthesizer + computer), Achim Tang (bass), Paul Skrepek (extended drums) Austrian pianist/composer Oskar Aichinger once said: 'I dream of music which is unequivocally committed to art and its complex mysteries -- but is still understandable: simple yet sophisticated, like a good joke'. Deliberately old-fashioned -- he steadfastly refuses to be taken in by the consumerist behaviour of the cell phone society -- the artist who has chosen to make Vienna his home is a consummate master of this intelligent interplay between simplicity and complexity. Oskar Aichinger is the secret star (although 'star' is just the opposite of what he wants to be) of Vienna's underground scene, and with the delicate chamber music on Synapsis, he realises what is perhaps his most essential musical postulate: 'It is possible to find forms that have immediate impact without being banal'."
