"Elfde Mixer is compiled of material taken from the Kapotte Muziek USA tour back in 1993. Both musicians have a lot of experience in several musical projects and therefore with different ways of working. Their versatility is clearly to be recognised in their work. The use of sounds, compositional choices and aesthetic display is one of clear decisions and conviction. Both pieces are minimal in the sense that there are no decorating elements. On the other hand both composers don't scare back of completely opposite choices in process and sound-use and take their 'concept' as binding as they prefer to. Hardly to be called minimal, more the opposite... Scanning through all surrounding possibilities they create their own, unique (and minimal!) universe. This universe is mostly dark, relatively empty and rather strange...It shares characteristics of soundscapish-music, but what is it we hear? Is it concrete music, synthesized sound, or...? Exactly, it has a puzzling alienated form of it's own. The focus lays very much with the raw appearance of sound and interaction between elements. It shows clear composition; the patience in build-ups, the abruptness of cuttings and the interaction between layers and parts is delicate but strong. In this case, less is definitely more."
