Renowned solo artists Barbara Morgenstern and Robert Lippok (Tarwater, To Rococo Rot), two of Berlin's most innovative electronic musicians, have joined forces to produce Morgenstern's fourth full-length release with Monika Enterprise. Tesri began as 4 tracks for a 12" in 2002 and the musical friendship developed from there until late 2004, when the duo had enough material for an album. This multi-instrumental record is brave and futuristic -- warm interlayered pianos, wah wah guitars, and minimalist percussion are blended with classical, whirring electronics to create an emotionally positive and uplifting experience. Two guest vocalists are featured on this record: London-based Japanese singer Mieko Shimizo aka Apache 61 and Damon Aaron (Telefon Tel Aviv), who has solo work forthcoming on Plug Research. Morgenstern and Lippok refreshingly dispense almost entirely with any conventional pop structures in favor of a left-field experimental feel.
