"Binder is Markus Binder, responsible for lyrics and riddim of the Austrian harmonica-tanzfloor-duo Attwenger. Attwenger's previous 4 CDs were on German label Trikont, and as John Peel said,'I have no idea, what it's all about, but I like the general noise, a great deal. That's Attwenger.' Or as the Rough Guide to World Music put it: 'Head-banging ländler-beat from the wildest of the alpine groups'. Binder bought himself a computer and sampler in 1997 and began to work on the altered states of sound, beat and lyrics with electro-acoustic means. The CD/2x12'' Photos 01 is the first result of his solo-explorations. Photos are samples, electronic data of unclarified origin, fragmented language, which is put together in sentences like electronic telephone information, electro-percussions, organs, filter, effects, drums and vocals played by markus binder, mixed, sequenced in a certain tempo. (some swim slowly). 'When I gave the blank CD-R with the label Photos on it to a stranger, he thought it would contain digital photographs, which, after all, was not too wrong.'"
